South Pacific Set Walking

Four to five walkers will be needed for a light cue preview.  Set walkers sit, stand, and walk the set in the same areas as the actors while the director and designers view lighting cue for the show.  Please wear any other color but white or black or neon.  You may also want to bring something quiet (like a book) to occupy yourself during the downtime.
South Pacific Light Focus Follow-up

10 AM – 5 PM (lunch break Noon-1 PM)
One to two volunteers at a time will assist the light designer with focusing lighting instruments. Much of the work happens on the catwalks, above the house, so requires volunteers to be comfortable with heights.
