Shakespeare Electronic Conference, Vol. 2, No. 158. Saturday, 8 Jun 1991.

Subject: The Stagecraft mailing list.
[Recently I came across another ListServ list which might be
of interest to SHAKSPEReans. (Most of you will remember that
I have also announced REED-L, FICINO, ANSAXnet, and CHAUCER-L;
information files on these Lists can be obtained from the
SHAKSPER Fileserver). This list, STAGECRAFT, is unmoderated
(and so entails all of the disadvantages of that form), and seems
to have had a fairly quiet first three months, but the concept is
interesting and with enough members might take off. I have
appended part of the STAGECRAFT Welcome message, with permission.
Purpose: This list is for the discussion of all aspects of stage work,
including (but not limited to) special effects, sound effects, sound
reinforcement, stage management, set design and building, lighting design,
company management, hall management, hall design, and show production.
This is not a forum for the discussion of various stage productions (unless
the discussion pertains to the stagecraft of a production), acting or
directing methods (unless you know of ways to get actors to stand in the
right spots), film or video production (unless the techniques can be used
on the stage). The list will not be moderated unless problems crop up.
Archives will be kept of the discussion (send mail to stagecraft-request
A good way to get started is to introduce yourself to the list. The
archives include a number of introductions.
Let's not degenerate into arguments about the "right" way to do things.
I've found that various solutions are "right" in various situations.
Above all let's learn something and have fun doing it.
I am keeping a "Rolodex" file of users and their abilities. Send me
following format, and you may leave any line blank. Put ROLODEX in
the subject line.
