Backstage Tour of a Cruise Ship Theatre
Let’s get some stage make-up on and put on a show!
This weeks Touring Tricks webisode is a backstage tour of a cruise ship theatre– kinda like Touring Tricks meets MTV Cribs. This is a small showroom compared to most of the ships I’ve worked on up to now. It’s also my first time on Holland America Line– this is the Veendam. The theatre seats about 600 people and has all the amenities of a great performance centre. The highlight for me is the team– the crew that makes me look good (well– as good as possible :p)
I’ll take you through the theatre from backstage to a view of the stage from the sound booth. It’s a really nice venue! At the end of the (watch all the way to the end) there is a clip of the ship passing underneath the Confederation Bridge that connects Prince Edward Island to Newbrunswick in Canada. It’s quite a sight to see.
PS: If you didn’t catch this weeks podcast I recommend checking that out– it’s for magicians and performers who want to learn to write comedy for their shows and my guest is Michael Paul Ziegfeld. He’s written for all the late night comedians including David Letterman, Bill Maher and Chelsea Handler. Listen to that podcast here.
