On the fifth day of (a) Christmas (carol)...
After 9 days in the rehearsal hall, it is time to move into the Ohio Theatre for technical rehearsals. The cast and crew came together over Thanksgiving weekend, for two 10 out of 12 days (meaning: 10 hours of rehearsal in a 12 hour day). Backstage, 19 members of the Great Lakes Theater run and wardrobe crews work together to make A Christmas Carol magical! The team incorporates all of the technical elements including trap doors, a flying clock, fog, snow, light up costumes and ‘Christmas Cheer’!
Production Stage Manager, Corrie Purdum, and Assistant Stage Manager, Tim Kinzel, give the GO for 255 light and sound cues and an additional 100 cues for scene changes/special effects during every performance!
