The script is the paperwork of the author to the audience. It just takes to rest of us to bring that paperwork to life. The creative team uses the script to discover what the author wishes to say. But then, we need to communicate how we wish to say our interpretation, our design, etc… Our paperwork visually shows all that stuff we want the tech crew to build, to hang, to rig, to sew, etc.
We have lots of drawings we need to create. From the designer’s ground plans to the technical director’s construction drawings. All of it needs to be clear and complete. If you don’t draw it, it won’t show up on stage. But, be careful. If you do draw it, it will show up. Avoid doodling in the corner of your plans!
