Posted on
  1. Audition for the leading role
    Try to get into the crew to work backstage
    Pick up your guitar and try out for band
    Send them a copy of your incredible poster design
    Mark the show on your calendar to attend
    Send in your vision for the show
    Attend a workshop to brush up your skills
  2. Volunteer to help manage it
    Offer to help clean up afterwards
    Attend the social
    Steer clear of it entirely
  3. Backstage blacks to blend in as you help
    A tux
    An incredibly elaborate costume
    Jeans, maybe?
    Ink stained hands, a moleskine, and skinny jeans
    Only a spotlight
  4. Sew them a new set of costumes
    Light it in silhouette so no one can tell
    Make up a treatise on why everyone was naked in the 60s
    Double down on your role -- it’s the performance that matters
    Express order new costumes AND catch the culprit before the show goes up
  5. Give everyone a number to keep track of them
    Organize everyone into a calm, orderly line
    Start impromptu karaoke to keep everyone entertained during the wait
    Look at the line, run away, and submit a resume by email
    Use the scenario to inspire your next work
  6. By making a spreadsheet and organizing every role -- you’re on it
    By streamlining -- what part of 1 person show did they not hear?
    You jump on board -- do as much as possible to help
    Start designing, there’s no time to waste
    Run away as fast possible -- that many people backstage scares you
