Cue To Cue

Commonly called Q2Q as well. A Q2Q is a technical rehearsal with actors that skips forward past scenes to the technical aspects. The purpose is for the crew to practice their jobs with actors around and for the actors to experience the tech for the first time. The rehearsal begins with all the standard pre-show calls, curtain raising etc... Once the acting begins, the stage manager will call for a hold and then skip forward to a line that is shortly before the next technical cue. The actors then move forward and pick up the action from that point. If there are problems with the tech, cues are repeated, this is the one chance for the crew to get it right.
