Jen and I got engaged here and I loved the city when we were here and it hasn’t lost its charm. Happy to be here for these two weeks, but sure do miss my family.
We are in the middle of opening night! The first of 16 shows I’m doing in Portland. Yee -haw!!
Not a sign of a good clamp!!
Three days left here. It has been lovely. Weather was pretty much 60ish every day.
Shows went well. I head home Sunday night and then I’m home for two weeks!
One of the awesome things about the Seattle Paramount is that the seating can disappear and the floor become somewhat flat. This makes for an easier load-in. Literally we hang the balcony rail with a Genie Lift…!! This is a pic of the seats half-way restored!
The E-shop, Small Lab and our hallway got re-surfaced this summer!
It was a rough load in. But we did it. Lots of little issues. Most resolved. We have an artistic license box issue. An annoying box. There is a lot to do preparing for STL fox!
Yesterday, I found a broken scroller (on of the ones bought over the summer) placed with all the working scrollers in the shop. This has solidified a belief that has been building. Our students need to fix more stuff. You need confidence, a sense of responsibility and practice. I know wee can do better, so we will.
This next term, I will continue having repair workshop time 3-5 MWF starting on Friday, January 11th. I am expecting anyone in the sophomore class or a junior or senior tech major that does not have an assignment to do will be there. I will give each student a project and all of you will be expected to complete them. There is a lot to do in our shop and since initiative seems to be low, we are going to push you to do it.
Whoo – hoo!
Bse – chapter 1
cse – create a basic plan
Ase – get a plan together for intensive arts
Go to it, folks. I’ll see you next Friday, and I’ll be cranky!
