Caucasian Chalk Circle

Here is some of my work as Wireless Microphone Technician on Yale Repertory Theatre’s production of The Caucasian Chalk Circle by Bertolt Brecht.  As is my custom, these notes were printed on 3×5 index cards that I kept in my cargo pocket and used in order to reference what my duties were throughout the show.

 

These tasks were printed on 3x5 notecards that I used to keep track of my show duties.

In addition to being the “Mic Bunny” for a cast of 18, I was also in charge of tracking a wireless IEM receiver that served to provide spot sound effects for both a cellphone and crying baby. The receiver needed to travel both with its attached speaker and between the two speakers in order to be plugged in at the right time and achieve the effect.

Fun notes: Due to some funky hats, multiple actors had to have their earpieces switched from one side to another as the play went on, since they played multiple characters and changed costume constantly. Also, one actor had to be taken completely out of mic halfway through the show so he could be given a bath onstage!
