Well we have officially opened How The Grinch Stole Christmas. We spent the last half of last week and all weekend working out the bugs out of the show during tech and opened on Tuesday night. Of course opening a show means opening night gifts and party. The company gave us all these really cool insulated backpack/lunch box things and some other smaller swag before the performance.
Post show we had dinner, drinks, and elbow rubbing with the theatre community of Utica at the Fort Schuyler Club. Check this place out!
Of course now that we’re open, it’s time to earn our keep. Yesterday started at noon with a “load out meeting” followed by some final fine tuning of the show from 1 to 5. Show call at 6 and straight into load out. We finally closed the door on the last truck at 3:15… my day today started around 6am bus rolling by 7 and I’m currently sitting in the Syracuse airport awaiting my flight to Detroit. For our next trick we will be starting load in at 3pm, and around midnight I will finally get a bed… thank god I can sleep on planes!
