So in the process of designing the show I'm working on now at the high school (everybody's favorite musical, Grease), I again ran into a couple of questions that had come to mind in years past, on the naming conventions for lighting positions. Overhead electrics are obviously overhead. That one's easy. A front-of-house or obviously-AP position is easy too. Ladders, box booms, regular booms are easy too. The architecture of the mainstage at the high school is rather stupid. It has a huge apron downstage of the pro, which extends probably three feet from the arch at the arch, but at centerline is a full 15 or 20 feet downstage of the pro, a big wide curve. In this area there are two dead-hung overhead lighting pipes, one just a couple of feet downstage of the pro, and the other six or so feet downstage of that. What do I call these positions? They're overstage but downstage of the pro. Next related stupid question: when you use a plain old batten as an added electric for a show, do you renumber the electrics for that show, or do you simply refer to it as "1A"? In this case, I added both 1A and 1B (and the upstagemost electric is 2), so I decided it made more sense to me to renumber them 1-4 this time. What makes most sense on these to you guys?
