This is a question On the stage

Too shy to ever appear on stage myself, I still hung around theatres like a bad smell when I was younger - lighting and set design were what I was good at.

Backstage we'd attempt to sabotage every production - us lighting geeks would wind up the sound man by putting the remote "pause" button for his reel-to-reel tape machine on his chair, so when he sat down it'd start running, ruining his cues. Actors would do scenes out of order to make our lives hell. It was great and I don't know why I don't still do it.

Tell us your stories of life on the stage.

re Rob's T-bird story
Reminds me of a Primary school production of Joseph and his Dreamcoat we did.

It was the scene where Joseph is due to come onstage in his 'chariot of gold' and the chorus are singing "Joseph came to Egypt in his chariot of go-o-o-ol-l-l-d".

It was a real anti-climax when he then was visibily pushed onto stage kneeling on a hostess trolley with a squeaky wheel that had been decked out in gold tissue paper.

If you can compare that to the same scene in the big budget West End version, where Joseph comes on stage on a huge Harley Davidson, you can understand why the lad playing Joseph must have felt like a right twat.
