The most dangerous places in theatre (feel free to add)
  • Orchestra pit (like what is going on there, it’s like a cave, is anyone alive?)
  • The 10*10 meters area around stage manager during tech week
  • Dressing room 5 minutes before the show
  • Behind the curtains, when the whole ensemble is waiting to go on stage
  • Light booth for anyone who isn’t light crew
  • Any staircase set piece in general
  • Space in between a set piece and a dancer in front of you during a dance number
  • In the storage room where all the set/costumes/props/dead bodies are kept (honestly got lost there once, scarred for life)
  • That one free spot that can be used for little personal rehearsal (IM THE LEAD I NEED THIS SPACE)
  • Bathrooms during intermission
  • Backstage if you are not a theatre kid
  • ANY THEATRE SPACE IF YOU ARE NOT A THEATRE KID
  • Beside an unfinished set piece (don’t you dare step on that, i’ll snap your neck)
  • Right in front of the choreographer, who is having a bad day
  • Beside a theatre kid, who just got insulted for doing theatre (honestly the worst)
  • Casting rooms during a callback (the most tension you’ll ever feel)
  • Backstage when there’s only 3 people who don’t really like each other
  • Beside an actor during quick costume change, which isn’t going great (if you see that situation: offer help, get a negative answer/deadly stare, run)
Why should choreographers be appreciated
  • They make show look absolutely beautiful 
  • They know all the different kinds of dance moves and it is truly hard
  • “Break a leg! I don’t mean literally, pls don’t”
  • They are working really hard to make dances suit the song
  • “I SAID TURN LEFT, WHY DID HALF OF YOU TURN RIGHT?!”
  • They have to work with 50+ people every day
  • They can fit all those 50+ people on stage
  • They have truly amazing minds, i mean how do they create all those dances
  • Even though it always seems so hard to learn all the moves…
  • … the dances stick with actors for a loooooong time
  • Stage crew also seems to know how to perform the moves backstage
  • They do an awesome job, which is so hard but exiting
  • “I just hope they perform everything correctly and on time and with passion and no one breaks a leg”
  • THEY ARE GREAT AND MUST BE LOVED, thank you

These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder
Which, as they kiss, consume.
