I was exhausted when I got home from work today. Like, can’t move from the couch if I wanted to, exhausted. That was 8 hours ago. Now I can’t sleep. Good thing I don’t have work tomorrow. I just have to make sure a 3 ft tall roman style bust gets repaired (the head fell off during our last performance) and mess around with the god mic until it works again. That might actually take a while since I know jack shit about running sound. The most I usually do is press a power button and maybe control the volume. I’m actually learning a lot on this show. Once it’s done I plan on writing a big long post about the differences between community theatre and theatre in an academic setting. Just to help me organize my thoughts. I’ve been feeling a little lost lately and examining where I am, what has changed, and how it affects my work/motivation/goals will help me figure out what my next step is. I foresee a lot of lists. All I know is that I’m tired of waiting for my career to happen. I have loved working on this show and would be happy to do another show at this theatre but I’m fucking good at my job when I’m passionate about it. I can’t seem to tap into that passion right now. I need it if I’m ever going to be able to make theatre my career. That’s why I need lists. They make me feel better and give me some direction.
So the single sentence post I was planning on kind of got away from me. Oops.
My current show is in a tiny community theatre and has very few cues. So I sit in the booth by myself and run sound, lights, and the spot. None of the cues happen at the same time so it’s not a big deal. The light board kept going to blackout randomly during tonight’s show. I was able to fix it pretty quickly each time and after the show we realized that it was probably a loose wire which we will fix tomorrow. The producer suggested getting a second person up in the booth to help me out. I don’t need a second person I just need the equipment to work. I’m kind of upset that he seems to think I couldn’t handle things. I don’t even know what I’m trying to say. It’s really late and I should probably just go to bed.
