Tours & Tables Pt. 2 – Tables | What We Do When We’re Dark

This week, we shot so much footage, we had to split the episode into two parts! In part 2, Greg hauls some tables up to Theatre Unleashed in North Hollywood for their first-ever Holiday Craft Faire and Bake Off, where Jenn is exhibiting some of her custom hand-made geek jewelry. Speaking of the bake-off, slutty brownies are baked, smack is talked, and a winner is crowned! Who will it be?Also, Greg is randomly assigned a show to judge for the Ovation Awards. Finally, Mr. Bailey purrs like a chainsaw, much to everyone’s delight.

ABOUT WHAT WE DO WHEN WE’RE DARK

This weekly vlog highlights events and productions happening at the various StageCrafts properties, as well as share some of the fun things the owners do, both theatrical and mundane.

What do we mean by “dark”? Well, the TDF Theatre Dictionary tells us a playhouse (like studio/stage) is “lit” when there’s a show running in it—until the production shutters and the theatre is said to “go dark.” That’s almost never a good thing, at least as far as the building’s landlord is concerned. With luck, it won’t be long until a new show loads in and the theatre is lit again.

For the context of this vlog, “dark” means any time a performance or an event is not actually in progress on our stage, and our goal is to answer the burning question “what happens in The Room Where It Happens when there’s nothing happening?”
