Stump the Rigger is Back. Virtually.

Stage Directions • Theatre Buzz • May 16, 2020

The coveted Jack Suesse Memorial Stump the Rigger trophy

Rigger and kazoo aficionado Bill Sapsis brought back Stump the Rigger, just in a virtual format. You missed it at USITT 2020 and they missed you. They brought Stump the Rigger to everyone online this past Friday, May 15.  If you missed it live, you can register to watch a replay.

It was the same basic idea as the in-person version done at the USITT conference for many years, with an online twist. The attendee who stumped the panel of ‘experts’ won the coveted Jack Suesse Memorial Stump the Rigger trophy.

Will Todd, David Carmack, and Bill Sapsis reprised their roles as panelists and they invited Eric Rouse to join them. Foolishly, he agreed.
