Maestro Casting

IF you are interested in playing in the weekly Maestro or Maestro RAW show. See the feed below and find the latest casting post and google form. The Form is always here. You can see if you are cast below as well.

A note from the current director:

Hey guys! My phone number is 512-810-9753, and my email is majcher@gmail.com – holler if you have any Maestro-related needs.

Maestro is every Saturday at 10pm. Call time is 9:20pm.
Maestro RAW is on Saturdays on months that don’t have student mainstage shows at 6pm. (Call time 5:20pm.)

If you’re running tech, here’s a great tutorial! https://vimeo.com/178074136

Current Policies:

Call-time for Maestro is 9:20. I will try to cast a limited amount of people from the current mainstage. I’ll also make sure there is always one director who can show up promptly and run warm-ups.

If you tech, you get to play the following week. However, it is up to you to make sure you are available to play the following week.

If you drop out of Maestro after it has been cast, there is a one month ban.

Warm-Ups will be organized and led by a director or a pre-assigned member of the Maestro cast. Again, warm-ups begin at 9:30pm.

Staying for notes is required. Maestro will get out between 11:45-11:50. Notes will not last longer than 10 minutes.

If you ever miss a signup post, you can always submit athttp://bit.ly/signupformaestro or http://bit.ly/signupformaestroRAW

Have a good time, party people!

Next week is the Marathon! That, combined with the Maestro residency, and a request from Kareem to "play with those idiots" (his term of endearment for anyone reckless enough to do the marathon), means that the cast is set!

A Request From The Hideout Staff,

Everyone please make more of an effort to protect our lighting and sound equipment.

- Absolutely *no* drinks in the tech booth or anywhere near the lighting and sound boards. We have had drinks spilled on our boards in the past few weeks, causing damage and expensive repairs.

- Cover the lighting boards when your show or class is over.

We need this gear to keep the theater running.

No drinks near the boards. Ever.

Thanks.

A Maestro Announcement!

I'm switching up how tech is scheduled for Maestro. Lindsey McGowen is now in charge of scheduling tech, a task she already handles for The Big Bash. Maestro tech is now also a paid position of $25 per show.

My goal is to provide as strong and consistent a foundation as possible for the show to launch from each week.

I know Lindsey has a list of techs in mind that she'll be seeking availability from. If you have any questions, reach out to her.

Thanks, y'all.

Hey hey! I have a few announcements!

One!

The participants in the inaugural Maestro Residency for June will be Jenn Hamm, Robert Slack, and Esperanza Rivadeneira.

I'm super excited to figure out how it all will work. Stay tuned for announcements about July and such.

Two!

Starting next week, I'm taking over the scheduling of Maestro from Marc Majcher. I want to give Maestro my attention for a while and get my hands dirty with it.

Marc's been kicking ass at it for a very long time, so please excuse me if there are some bumps along the way. I'm optimistic, though, since I'm also inheriting Marc's magical spreadsheets. So yeah, thank you for everything, Marc.

Up next: scheduling some Maestro rehearsals, and expanding our director pool.

New things! Hooray!

Hello everyone!
10pm Maestro - 6/3/2017

Maestro is the Hideout's Saturday 10 pm! It features games and scenes and nail-biting eliminations!

Directors: Ann Symmonds and Roy Janik!
Music: Tom Clear!

Sign up via the Google Form below with your NAME, your EXPERIENCE LEVEL, and your FAVORITE WARMUP.

(You'll only be cast for tech if you volunteer to do tech. Also, if you tech, you're automatically cast in the next show!)

v v v v v SIGN UP HERE! v v v v v

^ ^ ^ ^ ^ SIGN UP HERE! ^ ^ ^ ^ ^

_ .... .. ... .. ... _. ___ _ ._ ... .__. . _._. .. ._ ._.. __ . ... ... ._ __. .

If you sign up, please consider the following:
1. Call-time is a hard 9:20pm. Please do not be late. Warm-ups will be organized and led by a director or a pre-selected member of the cast.
2. If you are in (or are planning on seeing) the 8pm mainstage, please mention that. I will try to only cast one or two players involved with the 8pm mainstage, since it forces them to miss call-time.
3. Staying for notes is required. We are working hard for Maestro to get out by 11:45 and for notes to last no longer than 15 minutes. Feel free to drink your free beer and watch the show if eliminated!
4. Dropping out of Maestro after getting cast results in a one month no-play penalty.
