    This is where I may make mention of any new tools, or paraphenalia that I may come across. Like the new TerraLUX LED flashlights. LEDS will be the way of the future, and if you work backstage you need a powerful, yet small and compact light that doesn’t have inordinate spill. Check ’em out at http://www.terraluxcorp.com/products/ledflashlights.php

    So many of these kind of things are from manufacturers a million miles away. Ho do I look for more local supplies of these kind of techie gadgets?

    So much purchasing is being done online, I don’t think about purchasing locally. Probably not wise… A web search for Terralux flashlights yields all kinds of hits from house needs to lighting places and even battery places. I go to the TerraLux website, find the model I want, and then search.
    Maglites (the small ones) are still a great tool, and they are available generally anywhere. WalMart, Home Depot, Lowes, etc.
    As these new items become more known, many theatrical supply houses will start to carry them. Also, places on the web like Tools for Stagecraft http://www.toolsforstagecraft.com/index.htm, or maybe Roadie Tools http://roadietools.com/.

    The September newsletter, which believe it or not is coming out, will discuss makeup in the Techies Corner. It will have some links to online video tutorials by others as well as a great website that has tutorials.

    I am looking for a script entitled “Time” this is a two person skit that is a take-off of abbott and castello’s “who’s on first.” I have not been able to find it anywhere and was wondering if anyone knew where i could find this skit at? Thanks for your help.

    I have tried without success to find reference to this script, I am sure it was discussed years ago on our old CDF forum. If you can’t find anything then perhaps I could write up something. Feel free to send me a note or call me at anytime.

    We have a small church many of which are seasonal (winter) attendees. I announced a month ago that we were beginning a music and drama program and have received limited response. To give them samples,I’ve done interpretive signing, got together a small singing group and 3 actors for Christmas and a skit with 3 people for Jan. How does this sound for a beginning? I’ve been approaching prople one-on-one. Can you give me any suggestions to encourage people to participate?

    Hi Geraldine, unfortunately starting a ministry is usually a slow procedure, and the fact is that is not all bad. Starting slow can give you time to get established, to develop from the grround up. It is my opinion and experience that short sermon starters and monologues are good “ministry growing” efforts. Even larger, well established ministries are finding “more bang for the buck” in smaller, shorter presentations than in mega-performances.
    Don’t equate success with numbers.

    Geraldine,
    I agree with John and just want to add that you should expect it to be slow building up. A small core group that is dedicated and reliable is much better than a large semi reliable group. As John pointed out, the large or megfa performances require so many cast and crew, not to mention expenses, that it can be too draining to start out with. As far as encouraging people to participate, I believe that doing small performances on a regulatr basis will help to develop interest. Just don’t give up when nobody responds for a long period of time. It just seems to be the way. It is frustrating to organize what I call a posse cast, going person to person asking pleasseeee!!!

    My two beads worth,

    Karl Wagner
