Thanks for your input in all areas. I've worked on the Brent hookup a bit to make setup easier and less prone to dissaster; but I will reconsider. I'm just not sure if there's anything I do quite as strong as that. The Harris routine can work on stage. Several handling changes are required, but they are for the most part very minor. Of the monte routines you mentioned, which (if any) are ungaffed? The stage I'll be using (I'm fairly sure) is a proceneum, which makes angles pretty good. You do bring up a good point about the problems presented by an outdoor performance. So far as I know, I'll have no PA or Miking system- I'm a drama student, I can project (famous last words, I'm sure). I'm trying to think of more material at the moment, I really have very little experience with large stage work. I've done a good deal of parlor magic (a halloween gig for the deranged mutant hyperactive disrespectful bratty sixth graders rom HELL.... :mad: ), but this will be fairly new for me. Gotta start some time I guess.
