Technical Theater Logic

On is In, In is Down, and Down is Front.
Off is Out, Out is Up, and Up is Back.
And of course,
Right is Left, and Left is Right.

A Drop shouldn’t.
A Block and Fall does neither.
A Prop Doesn’t.
A Cove has no water in it.
Tripping is okay, and often encouraged.
A Running Crew rarely gets anywhere.
A Purchase Line will buy you nothing.
A Trap will not catch anything.
A Gridiron has nothing to do with football.
A Strike is work. (In fact a lot of work)
A Green Room usually isn’t. (Thank goodness)

Now that you’re fully versed in theatrical logic and terms
