Social Buzz: Anyone Can Turn on a Followspot

Stage Directions • Theatre Buzz • September 10, 2019

Here’s a sign that was found in the followspot booth at the Palace Theatre in Cleveland, OH. Stagehand Mike Holmes, who is out with The Book of Mormon took this photo and shared it on Facebook. Holmes commented that he’s been “a spot light guy since 1989. On the road pretty steady. I do believe I have surpassed working, and calling, 10,000 shows in the last 30 years.”

It’s true, it is about what comes next that counts as operating a followspot is an art form! The people who do it well deserve kudos and respect!

(H/T to Mike Holmes, who is out with The Book of Mormon for finding this great sign!)
