I’m definitely posting more personal posts than I wanted to, but I’m very passionate about this- if you stage door a show:
1. Bring a Sharpie! I’ve been to like 3 shows where the actors came out without a marker and I had to share. I usually bring a few. Black and metallic colors are good for different poster/Playbill art. If the actors don’t have a marker and you do, let the actor use it for other fans.
2. SHARE! If there’s a crowd and you manage to get to the front, offer to pass things up to the actors for the people behind you. I’m always appreciative when people do that for me, and I make sure to offer to the people around me before anyone comes out. It means a lot to people and it’s an easy way to be nice. This is literally my favorite good deed to do for people.
