Auditions and Budget Costs

Auditions began in Taipei, but they’re waiting until I’m there to make final casting decisions.  The technical department keeps trying to cut set-up and rehearsal time and we’re still trying to find studio space.

Budget cuts are brutal, but The Rocker sees things this way: “in Montreal, I wanted to put our musicians on an army truck, but the cost of rental was more than the fees of the musicians, which didn’t make sense, so cut the truck.”  If you can find a creative solution without expensive gadgets or rigging it is better all-around and rehearsal and set up will be easier too.  For example, we’re trying to find a cool way to use the existing rigging for the outdoor stage as part of the stage, like having people to climb down from the top of it.
