Finally, we would like to share some thoughts on what it’s like to be a Stage Manager for KIT, written by the magnificent Abigail King - who we heartily endorse for all your stage management and prop-making needs:
“Working as a Stage Manager for KIT Theatre’s Adventures is brilliant, inspiring, funny, quite hard work and almost always involves a very early start. Before pupils have even had their breakfast at home, I can be found somewhere in their school grounds burying fossils, fixing a time machine, setting out secret code chocolate wrappers, hiding alien eggs / Aliens themselves in cupboards. Crazy as that all is, my main jobs (I think), are:
To make sure everything and everyone is where they need to be at the right time and in roughly the right costume based on the extremely detailed schedule we’ve been given.
To have the ability to make the decision to completely rip up that extremely detailed schedule, because it turns out Year 4 have got P.E in the hall today.
All of this must, of course, be done undercover, in character, with a vague-sounding title like “Assistant to the Deputy Soil Expert”.” To read more follow this link to our website.
