Watch on

this is like the most 70s musical theatre thing ever

"Break" Time

Setting: A high school theater tech weekend.

Director:  All right!  We still have lots to do, but we need to eat lunch!  Actors, if you’re not doing anything, go ahead and eat!

A few minutes later.

Director:  OK, all the actors can go eat.  And I guess you guys who are painting can go ahead and take a break.

A couple more minutes

Director:  Great!  Everyone but (lighting designer), (sound designer), (stage manager) and (assistant stage manager), go get lunch!  You have 20 minutes!

A few more minutes

Director:  Oh, I guess you guys have to eat too.  Umm…go ahead and see if there’s any food left.  You have 5 minutes.

Stage Manager:  They’ve already let people get seconds.  There’s not going to be anything but very sad lettuce left.

LD: But we got so much done!  It was a very productive break.
