ATG – Night Music 28 – The First Matinee

ATG – Night Music 27 – The Second Show

I went to the Guild about 1600 to let the substitute pianist in. He’s never seen the score and he’s scheduled to play tonight. I hope he’s a good sight-reader. I went back to the Guild around 1730 for the show. I had to scrounge up some

ATG – Night Music 20 – Ah, Hell Week

  Ah, community theatre. Ah, Hell Week. Where to begin? The April 18 rehearsal couldn’t be on the stage as the Stage Committee was there in force putting the finishing and, in some cases, beginning touches on set pieces. In a corner of the Clubroom, Stan LaFramboise
