Inside of every play or musical is a rehearsal report email from Stage Management to the Props Master, outlining specific requests and BOILING THE PROJECT DOWN TO ITS ESSENCE. For A.D. 16: Goats, Ancient Casseroles, Babies. I’m back in rehearsal for the first time in….3 years? And I’m ever so cautiously optimistic that we’ll actually get to do the thing. Please God, let us do the thing. Please Props master, PROVIDE US WITH THE DEAD GOAT ON A STICK.
