10 Tech Week Terrors That No Techie Wants To Face

Written by Tatiana Rodriguez

May 18, 2017

We all know how it feels going into tech week. There are a list of terrors that us techies never want to face. In light of those horrors, this GIF list is here to remind us that we are not alone with our fears. Here are 10 tech week terrors, we do NOT want to face (though we probably will)!

1. Having a deck crew that is a complete mess.

2. LATE actors.

3. When spike tape is spontaneously missing from the stage.

4. Losing a prop (or worse, a bunch of props… or worse…losing the prop master).

5. Finding out you have a bunch of broken mic packs.

6. When everybody on stage keeps calling “line”.

7. Misplacing your prompt book.

8. Having ripped or broken costume pieces.

9. When people DON’T read the rehearsal reports.
