I’m Charlie Carr, the set designer for our upcoming show, “The Boy From Oz,” a musical biography of the late star Peter Allen. We do four mainstage productions a year (this is the third for this year, to be followed by the comedy “Vanya and Sonya and Masha and Spike” in June). If you’d like to come down during one of our crew times, you’d be very welcome.
Our normal times are Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, 7:00-9:00, and Saturday mornings, 9:00 to noon. We will not be there tomorrow evening but will be working on Saturday. We’re very casual, so don’t feel you have to be there at the very start, or that you have to stay all the way through. I don’t know if you know our location: 22 Academy Street in Arlington Center. Let me know if you need directions, or you can check out our website: www.afdtheatre.org. We’re also on Facebook.
We’ve done most of the building for this show but we have some wall units to set in place, and some curtains to rig, followed by painting if you’re into that.
Something to think about: this show (which performs the first three weekends in April) will need two or three stage crew members for each performance. These crew members will not appear to the audience; it will be just backstage work, including some furniture moving and occasional curtain pulls. If you are, or might be, interested in participating in this exciting show, or know someone else who might, please contact production manager Ginger Webb at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to see you Saturday, or whenever you can come by!
