Members Present: Ivy, Timmy, Chuckie, Zach TARDY: Ella 12-8-15 • Sam no longer acting as stage manager • Considering potential replacements • Silverfish are in the tech office. Silverfish are gross. • Timmy didn’t know they were a thing but he thinks they’re cool. • Not our job, it’s maintenance’s job (are they called maintenance? Janitor squad? Something? Never mind, they’re called facilities.) • Ivy brought in the same dish she spilled on herself, but slightly different. It’s an Indian spinach cheese dish. • Chuckie thought it was a pasta. It’s not • Club day? Should we have a HSM table? • Can someone plan for a future club day instead of this one? • Chuckie wondering exactly how our budget functions. • Next week: ask Jeannie for an updated print out for our budget • Ella has dried apricots. She’s talking to me about how they’re brown and organic and not artificial and how the bright orange dried apricot business is terrible. • Ella has connections at the farmer’s market • Tech meeting tomorrow at lunch • No clear idea of what tech needs to be done specifically besides costumes • Once we figure out our specific needs we can do that. • Explain the process/division of tech • Some people unresponsive/only showing up during tech week • Tomorrow we could get blocking in for quite a few scenes • Run everything once before winter break • They haven’t done characterization sheets yet, we just need to get them off book and acclimated. • WINTER BREAK IS NEXT WEEK • “Chuckie, what the hell is oovoo.” “It’s like facetime, but for lots of people” • Remind people to do play stuff? Post cheesy things on social media. • Is Ivy coming up with a set plan? Do we have a stage design? It’s all done, apparently. • We need lots of adults that can do intense carpentry • Keeping the HSM set for the Comedy of Errors set, which is why we can spend all this moolah. • Nobody freaking said they could play the piano • I have a chai milkshake in the math office with my name on it. Literally, with my name on it. Can’t wait. • I can’t really add the sketches that Ivy’s doing on to this doc, but she has a very specific plan already. Props to Ivy. • School to ski lodge: just add lighting! • None of this play requires a set change, really. • We’re in a high school, it’s going to look like a high school. • Ensemble will deal with set changes. • Ella: communicating with tech heads, making sure Ivy’s vision gets done without her being distracted by bunches of people. “General Coordinator/ Assistant Stage Manager” • Chuckie: Costumes, specifically giving people specific times/instructions • Timmy/Me: Coordinating food/publicity • Ivy: Directing the whole freaking play. • Parent helpers, yay!!! • Get actors measurements before winter break, do it all then • Build days picked in advance, run it by parents/helpers, so no shenanigans • Mr. Bradford will draw out dimensions/plans • Don’t eat Ms. Migdall’s sandwich, Ms. Bradford!! • On another note, Ms. Bradford is allergic to avocadoes • Ivy was once the “Cheese Queen” but lactose intolerance usurped her throne • Ella will check calendar to see when stage is booked/not booked • Wow, we are real organized this time around • We just watched two girls walk by conjoined by a single Christmas sweater.
