The technical rehearsal takes place when all the actors know their lines and moves, the set has been built and the lights have been put up. The purpose of this rehearsal is for the actors and technicians to see if the exits and entrances work, the lights are in the right place, there is enough room on the set and behind the set for the actors to move around and so on. It is the time to test any special sound or light effects and to make sure that the actors can hear their cues. It is the one chance for everyone to become familiar with what is on stage before they have a final dress rehearsal and then perform to a paying audience …that’s the theory – in practice it is frequently, if not always a complete disaster. An hilarious “fly on the wall” experience for the audience.
