I should have posted about this a long time ago (let’s say approximately two weeks ago…), but I thought I would share my second stage managing experience. On Tuesday, February 4th, I opened the Freed Center for the Performing Arts, in order to host a DECA conference. I was able to remember all that I was taught, other than which key turned off the buzzer (I found this to be a big accomplishment, as I learned all of the process in about 30 seconds- literally), and I was able to get assistance with that. After beginning the paperwork, and discovering the pen shown above, something I’d randomly grabbed in the dark of the tool room, was from my hometown/county’s fair. My replacement came in so that I could rush off to my Tuesday morning classes. When I came back, it was the beginning of lunch break, and the students from the conference had long since been gone. I got my update about what was expected of me at the end of break, and went to go ask a few questions of my mentor, the current arts administration professor and interim director of the Freed Center. After bothering her- I mean… discussing my job, among other things, for a half an hour, I ate my wonderful lunch of pop tarts (my life is nothing if not glamorous), and went back to make sure the rest of the conference went smoothly. It went as smoothly as it could have. High school kids can be terrifying, and one of the students said something obscene to the girl running sound- WHAT else is new? So concludes my day, thoroughly grateful that I’d dropped my education major. I then rushed off to three hours of class, foisting the sending of the report and closing of Freed off onto someone else, as the conference ended right as my class began. Luckily, the class was also in Freed…
