16. Tech Notes for the Chapter Play

This year's chapter play, UP THE DOWN STAIRCASE, has a stage set that uses a "platform," where characters pop-up, walk across, or suddenly appear out of it to say their lines. This will be a challenge technically-speaking.

Anyone who grew up in the 60's (that's 1960's) will remember a silly, popular TV show called Rowan & Martin's Laugh-in, which used a similar stage set design. So, for research purposes to help the techies, prepare to take a walk on the wild side (prepare to groan, because it's pretty bad humor-wise), and watch the following clips. (You'll find tech ideas and tech problems, too.)(Caution also: some adult humor that you can skip, please.)

Say goodnight, Dick.
