It’s that time of the week again!
Just a few months ago, I was a student waiting for my tickets from Madeleine or whichever staff member was to give my teacher our tickets. Last week, I handed out the tickets. This time, I was in charge. Along side a veteran Early Stages teacher, I bestowed three groups with tickets to a preview of A Street Car Named Desire. For this handout, it was my duty to warmly welcome each group, remind them of basic theater protocol, snap a photo of them, and of course, hand them their tickets.
The day before, Madeleine notified me of how busy she was due to the fact that she was in the process of booking groups for copious shows in the following weeks. As a result, she was somewhat short staff, and called for emergency back-up. This is where I come in. Since I had prior knowledge of how ticket handout works, and Madeleine had to work another show simultaneously, my job was to steer my interim partner in the right direction as far as ticket handout goes.
In all my days as an Early Stages interm, never have I ever felt so much pressure. I feared I would not complete my task competently. However, it turns out I did a great job (if I may so myself). The next day at the office, Madeleine commended me for taking such great photos of the students in front of theater. I felt nothing but pride in myself to know that I have the ability to take on a challenging task such as handing out tickets, much less without Madeleine present.
That’s all for now! Tune in next week for my blog about my Spring Break! Have a great week, everyone!
