Prior to opening night, you will have a certain amount of time to ‘get in’ to the space itself. Due to the high volume of shows in Cambridge, this time is limited and will depend on which venue you are using.
At the ADC Theatre, the usual schedule for a Main-Show is:
The ‘Get-In’ will be run by the Technical Director – most of the company will come and help during the day as there is a lot to do.
The Stage Manager will run the technical rehearsal. This is a chance to put the show on the set for the first time with the lighting and sound, ensuring everything is time correctly and safely.
There is a lot to do in a short amount of time just before the show opens – it is a good idea to get in touch with the CUADC technician for advice on how to make the most of the time available.
