2 Semi Trucks...Check!
Today was a busy day for our cast and crew! We dismantled our entire set and packed it up, along with our lighting equipment, sound equipment, props, costumes and instruments. Everything fits neatly in two 53' semis. Thanks to some very extensive planning by Mr. Jump and our technical crew, everything has a specific home in the trucks and we were able to get everything loaded without any snags. It took a lot of hands to strike and load up our large set. Lighting had to be removed, cables coiled and packed away. Sound equipment had to be loaded up. Drops had to be folded. Marquees had to be de-bulbed. Scenery had to be disassembled and secured inside the trucks. Costumes had to be wrapped in plastic and labeled. And our portable floor had to be taken up and stowed in one of the trucks. Needless to say, everybody was pretty worn out by the end of the day! The trucks are now on their way to Lincoln, where they will meet us on Monday so we can unload them into the Lied Center shop. It just got real...we are going to Nebraska!
