The theatre, the theatre, what's happened to the theatre?
Thus sang Danny Kaye in the 1954 classic film White Christmas. In the song "Choreography," Kaye laments changes taking place in the "modern" theatre. Meanwhile, all around him, dancers engage in a breathtaking display of the time period's most cutting-edge dance moves. The question we plan to raise today is similar: What could happen at the theatre, and how can stainless steel corner guards help?
Of course, we could never hope to address all that could happen in the theatre in such a limited space as this. Generally speaking, however, anything and everything that you can imagine takes place every night in theatres around the country. Men and women sing, dance, "fly" on wires, fight, fall in love, break one another's hearts, juggle flaming torches, and accidentally fall offstage mid-act.
Meanwhile, behind the scenes, the actors, stage managers, costume and set designers, and various assistants race around through narrow corridors, like so many over-excited hamsters in a set of tubes. They ferry clothes racks and props through narrow passages, turning themselves by sideways to avoid others coming the other direction. Actors slip behind the curtains for quick-change acts, while meanwhile the stage manager dashes past with a cup of coffee and a clipboard, whisper-shouting instructions into her headset, barking at the tech crew to bring up spot light on her cue.
What's happening at the theatre? Everything at once.
