At last Sunday’s I Am Marguerite matinee, Fight Director Naomi Priddle Hunter watched the show from the sound/lighting booth, and took some pictures (“strictly amateur”, she describes them!) by pressing her camera up against the booth window.
She captured a unique perspective, and you can really get the full effect of Marysia Bucholc’s set design in these shots. Plus, Naomi caught stage manager Kelsey Rutledge in action!
That was also the show on which the headphones (the communication link between Kelsey, her assistant stage manager backstage, Kimberly de Jong, and sound operator Gabrielle D’Angelo) stopped working, but luckily Naomi was able to do a quick fix and get them running again.
I Am Marguerite continues its run – a world premiere! – to April 25. Performances are Wed – Sat at 8pm; Sunday April 19 at 2pm. Tickets are 2-for-1 on Wed; $20 each on Thu/Fri/Sat; PWYC on Sun. Reserve by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org and pay cash on arrival, or purchase online in advance at http://www.alumnaetheatre.com/tickets.html
Remember – this Sunday’s matinee is followed by a Talkback with cast, director Molly Thom, the designers, and playwright Shirley Barrie.
