Dry ice is once and done; buy more dry ice. It also hugs the deck and accumulates from the deck up.
There's a reason musicians are relegated / confined to pits; which reminds me:Ah, who cares about the pit musicians...
Yeah, don't mess with us quirky Props Peeps... we can think of so MANY creative ways to "Get things done!" : }There's a reason musicians are relegated / confined to pits; which reminds me:
In the 1970's, a pit full of AF of M'ers were touring with the annual Christmas through New Years Nutcracker.
Stop after stop, in spite of their IA touring Prop Man providing 3 LARGE garbage pails, they left the pit a disgusting mess of partially full coffee cups, some used as ashtrays, beer bottles, remnants of food, and spit from the spit traps of various brass instruments which their Prop Man had to clean up and bag post each venue's stop.
One year when one of their trucks backed into our dock, they opened the doors and six very full garbage bags spilled out. We were about to bin them when IA 58 Prop Master Neil Pennel stopped us and mentioned they had a special purpose; where upon he had several of us tote them to the DS edge of our stage where he, one by one, emptied the contents of all six bags into the pit, all over their chairs and empty music stands.
When the muso's arrived, Neil hollered down to them: "This is how you've left the last two pits; if that's how you like it, I'm happy to oblige".
I wonder how they left the pit at their next stop?
