« The Ultimate Guide to Sitting Onstage at "Spring Awakening" | Main | Theater Review: To 'BE' or not to be - that's the noisy question »

I worked at the Granada as a ciasher when I was a senior in high school in 1955/56. Never ate so much popcorn in my life and didn't eat it again after I left for a long, long time. I took ballet lessons in school and we were required to practice for a certain amount of time before the play opened. The manager let me practice backstage before the theatre opened as I sure didn't have the room to practice at home. All in all, it was a very good experience.
