Stage Manager

Stage Manager

The opening words of the producer, "I may be in charge at the moment but on the night you will take directions from Huddy Williamson." The Stage Manager is an important person. We went to see him. A slightly built, slightly bald, slightly self-conscious person flinched before our gaze. "Here are the answers to those embarrassing questions you asked me," he said. "Now go away. I'm shy, and I want to do some work."

Here are his notes: "Fresher in 1936; taken part in all Extravs since then. Stage Manager or assistant since 1939. Not conspicuously successful in failing degree; had B.Sc. forced on me in 1940.

Official excuse for presence at V.U.C. this year: none."

Message to cast: "Please! Avoid opening kegs on stage and tripping over thunder apparatus during love scenes."
