Ah - live theatre...
This performance report was forwarded from a local college theatre production:
Note from recent stage manager's report:
2.) A crew member got both hands stuck in his jacket pockets 15 minutes prior to curtain. Stage management was able to quickly help him free his hands. He was able to perform his crew duties without a problem.
When asked if this was a joke, the Stage Manager's response was:
"Sadly no, it really happened. It was our light board op too so he really needed his hands."
