Monday night was our first night at Lisner Auditorium. We were all in costume to work on the first part of the show. This was our first time seeing the set (wow) and finding out what it’s like to do this show on that stage.
Most of us carry a paper copy of the running order on stage to remind us what’s coming up next. The running orders are covered in notes about where to go and what to do. By the first performance, on Saturday, we’ll know the show well enough to banish most running orders. But for now, the rule is that the director shouldn’t be able to see them.
Now, here’s the challenge: Our costumes have no pockets.

Very clever post, missy.
🙂 Thank you.
You should just carry a program with you.
Great idea. They should be back from the printer on friday.
Great work, Helen!
I’m able to keep mine in my right boot.
Loved this post! I was surprised no one admitted to keeping the running order in their bra. But maybe the necklines are too high for easy access?
Well, I’m not in the show this year, but I ALWAYS stuffed mine into my bra….
Oh yes! I think it just so happened that nobody I asked had done that? I did get a picture of a pair of reading glasses en decolletage, but I decided glasses were off-topic.
This is why bodice years are the best.
Not in this show this year either, but I fondly remember keeping the running order in my bra, sleeve, work basket (if I had one).
