An Evening of “Tech” for The Whale
Ever wonder what it’s like at SCR the week before a play opens? Just ask members of the Golden or Platinum Circle, two of the theatre’s most active—and curious—donor groups.
On Wednesday night, March 6, Circlers observed a “tech” rehearsal for The Whale, watching as all the technical elements—lights, sound, special effects—were added.
Techs can be very technical; just ask longtime techie, Olivia Johnson. “There’s always a lot of stopping and starting while the director, actors, designers make adjustments to their work,” she said.
“But it's so amazing to be able to view the critical detail that goes into every minute of each scene to create the polished finished product on stage.”
