theatre pickup line: "hey babe, let's make like a screw and strip"

That one deserves a dance, bravo!

Just looked up a report. How sad. Thanks for letting me know.

Director: “Lower, lower. We don’t stab people in the face.”

SM: “Well…you could.”

Other techs: “Yeah you really could.”

My high school has a ghost, Lester. He can ONLY be signed in by the stage manager or something goes wrong. My senior year we put on Zombie Prom. It was a huge workload so my friend and I split head costuming duties, I was in charge of the boys while she took the girls. Then opening night came upon us. Can you guess what happened? A freshman had decided to sign Lester in. Our lead actress came off the stage with a two foot rip on the side of her skirt. It was completely irreparable.


Um theater pick up line? Okay. Are you a point of origin and a number Because you're brighter than a source four. (Okay, I know it sucks. I'm a techie not an improver. So sue me.)

This is so specific and nerdy :) I love it!!

Another op'nin, another show...

Thanks, Technicaltales :) what a lovely reminder of a show that I quite enjoy!


Tired, thrilled, sad, excited and a bit nervous.

Someone message me? no need to solve any of my (small) problems, just wanna chat and get my mind off of things.  Theatre pickup lines? little storie s and anecdotes? anything. It will go on my blog if you’d like :)

many thanks

When Jack Warner was casting the movie My Fair Lady, Julie Andrews, who played the original Eliza Doolittle on Broadway, was overlook for the part, that was given to Audrey Hepburn.

That made her available to accept Mr. Disney’s invitation to play Mary Poppins.

At the 22nd Golden Globes, when she won the best actress award (she was up against Audrey for My Fair Lady), she had her sweet revenge.
