Anonymous said: Hey, so I got asked to Stage manage a play. What do I need to know about stage management, what should I prepare in advance before rehearsals start and any tips on it? Thank you!

I’m super sorry that this is probably too late. It’s also not very useful, I’m afraid, as I don’t have any experience as a stage manager. However, there’s lots of stage management and general tech blogs that can answer you. Again, I’m very apologetic about this. I did reblog a post a while back, though, that goes over it briefly, which will be under our stage management tag. I’m greatly sorry that I can’t help you too much!

The Stages of Growing Your Hair Out for a Role

Stage 1: GROW. NOW. PLS.

You have six months to get your hair waist length, and your hair is not cooperating. You frantically google every single method of speeding up hair growth, and measure it EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Just in case.

Your hair has got to the stage where it’s slightly longer than usual, and you’re enjoying your enhanced ability to do L’Oreal style flicks with it. Life’s good.

Stage 3: Irritation

Hey, turns out you actually need to tie long hair back, and like, brush it every day. Who knew?

Stage 4: What-do-I-even-do-with-this????

image

It’s now at the point where your initial love of your new, flowing locks has turned to undying hatred. You have no idea what to do with your hair, and you spend an inordinate amount of time looking for ANYTHING that makes your hair more manageable. You frantically collate pictures of pixie crops and bobs as a strange form of therapy, and just buying a wig is beginning to look pretty tempting.

Stage 5: The End

image

Hallelujah, war is over. The run comes to an end, you cut your hair back to your usual length, and let out a sigh of relief. It’s the end of an era. Normality resumes…

…until next show.

Our drama teacher once told us a story of an actress she worked with who was fairly rude to everyone but she treated the tech crew like shit. She had a scene where she was sitting in a bed and halfway through the scene she was supposed to stand up. Apparently the techies helping her set up during…
