The MTI Show Collection: Creating Water

Thanks for your help! We don't have a theater at our school so we performing at our high school. We are at the mercy of the limited lighting and space on their stage. We thought about gels but aren't really sure if there are enough lights to sacrifice one or two to a specific gel. We are down to around $800 after costumes and things. Our show is May 9,10 and 11.

Backstage: Rehearsal boxes

Hi Rita,

There are a couple things you can do.

1. I think Cindy Ripley or a few other people may have the dimensions for the boxes that you could possibly get.  While I think wood is what we prefer, there are also some other materials that you could use but I'm not sure what they are, you could probably find them online. 

2. Have you thought about using donorschoose.org or a site like that to see if you can get the Wenger 3 boxes for $495 set?  You might be able to use a site like that and get families and people who just love theatre and contributing to programs to buy or donate the majority of the funds for that?

Hope some of this helped,

Spencer

MTI Show Support: JTF 2014

Hey Elizabeth,

While I'm not the expert, it's probably safer that you pick another show for the summer.  I have found that depending on where it is with copying of the show, times vary all summer long.  Although Jason Cocovonis or your MTI rep could better say if you called or emailed them directly.

The MTI Show Collection: Where to end ACT I in Disney's Little Mermaid Jr

When My theatre did this we did not have an intermission, but we were going to stop it right before the Les Poisons Scene.

MTI Show Support: Key change for song

Hi Millie,

I use the Amazing Slow Downer from http://www.ronimusic.com. It changes keys and speeds and is affordable at $50. There's a windows version and mac version -- and a trial version too so you can determine if it fits your needs. Good luck!

MTI Show Support: Where can you find how many lines each character has in a show?

Of course, but when you are dealing with amature casts, and need to quickly understand the ensemble roles, it sure would be helpful.
