Barrier-Free's November social outing was full of friends, delicious food, and wonderful times!
We were also fortunate enough to host this Social Club outing on a a Greene Turtle Funds with Friends fundraiser day! Barrier-Free earned 20% of the bill for anyone who dined at Greene Turtle in support of Barrier-Free.
Here are some highlights from the social clubs hours (6:30 - 8pm). If we missed you earlier in the day, we appreciate your support and presence.

Our waiter Kevin was incredible and such an asset to the Greene Turtle team.

We'll see you at our next Social Club!
It's time for some showtime-specific terms!
Tech Week: the week leading up to the opening night of the show is called tech week. The cast runs through the show with all lights, set pieces, sound effects/equipment, and music. Tech week is vital for those staff who run lights and sound to get a feel for the show and what they can do to fix/enhance their effects. This is also the week for any tune-ups or last-minute changes.
Call Time: A call time is simply the time that the director requires all actors to be in the theater the day of a show.
Time Call: On the other side of calls is the time call, which is when the director, stage manager, or a stagehand will call to the actors with however many minutes are left before the start of the show. "Curtain up in ten!"
Intermission: Halfway through a show, the audience is provided a break to stand, stretch, use the restroom, and get food. This is an intermission. For Barrier Free shows, our intermission is the time in between the first one-act show and the second, where we usually host a fun raffle!!
Curtain Call: Take a bow! The curtain call is when all the actors gather onstage to bow at the end of the show, and soak in the applause from the audience! During the bows, the cast will also acknowledge whoever runs the lights, the sound, and the backstage helpers. Everyone gets applause!
This is just a shortlist of everything that goes into a show. We didn't even really touch on the lighting terms yet--maybe another post!
This is just one step in a journey of building our wonderful theater community! I look forward to posting more on here as we get ready for and work through the season!
