This is a question On the stage

Too shy to ever appear on stage myself, I still hung around theatres like a bad smell when I was younger - lighting and set design were what I was good at.

Backstage we'd attempt to sabotage every production - us lighting geeks would wind up the sound man by putting the remote "pause" button for his reel-to-reel tape machine on his chair, so when he sat down it'd start running, ruining his cues. Actors would do scenes out of order to make our lives hell. It was great and I don't know why I don't still do it.

Tell us your stories of life on the stage.

This one time
back in year 4 i was in a school play based on Oklahoma!, that shit movie. Part of the play involved lots of chairs stacked together on the stage and mocked up to look like a stagecoach. Compared to our tiny child-like bodies, the stagecoach was a massive erection of chairs and tables. Rehearsals were ok but on the night things went south. At our cue myself and a fellow coach driver got about halfway up before i trod on his fingers, thus precipitating our demise and the toppling of the apparatus.....right onto the front row of the sitting child audience. Several people got stabbed by chairs. I was ok though, I landed on a bunch of screaming faces.
