What was the most successful production you have worked on, and in your opinion, what contributed to its success?
Les miserables, large cast, many costumes, many props, full orchestra.
I feel that most have been a success in there own way. Each production is different it has had its up and down, it's difficulties and triumphs. It's all part of the thrill of putting on a show.
My most recent one where I got to manage a very small show called the Law of 8 that went on in the Sean O'Casey Theater in Dublin. It was great to see it go so well after so many twists and tails in the road to get there but thankfully it all worked out in the end.
Metamorphoses. I love plays that have such amazing features like a pool that get both actors and techies excited.
I would have to say I enjoyed them all but there are a few that really stand out to me the first one was my first show. I made no money Only family and friends came out. And a few other people. It was pretty much a crowd no show. The other two were the shaquile oneil all star comedy jam & the isley brothers. Between those two shows I learned so much from the crew I worked with.
Bronte, there were a lot of props and costume changes, but everything ran smoothly and because we were on top of everything nothing got lost or damaged.
My most successful production was The Drowsy Chaperone last fall. It was a positive experience for all involved and even set box office records at my school.
