Hello, Internet, today is Monday, March 7th – our 2-show day! Yesterday, I woke up in my extremely comfortable bed at earlier-than-I-wanted-to-be-awake o’clock, went to the window, looked out, and found that the snow hadn’t stopped. So I crawled back into the extremely comfortable bed and when I got out again, the sun was out, so that was good.
After a morning off, we piled into the van and drove the 3 blocks to the Stephenville Arts & Culture Centre.
I have to tell you: I have been looking forward to the Stephenville venue since we booked it. This is because I have recently worked in the theatre, I know the space, and I know the house technicians. I knew we would be well taken care of.
I wasn’t wrong. Lori and Mike had us sorted out in record time. Loaded in, screen and boxes put together (and mended from their final journey by air), focused, levels set and Q2Q in 3.25 hours without breaking a sweat.
At 435 seats, this is our largest theatre venue yet, and this morning it will be chock-a-block with students from the west coast of Newfoundland. This venue drew so much interest that they had to book a second show!
Luckily, the show looks beautiful in there.
