After the show, Jeff Kready, who played Tony (Billy's brother), let us go on the stage and back stage!! WOW, what a treat! Jeff is a friend of my friend Alisa Lybbert, who I met in Skagway. It's unreal how small the stage really is. It appears so big when you are in the audience, but it's much smaller in real life. The mechanics of back stage are so complicated as well. Jeff talked to us about how things are built at an angle to create dimensions and objects to appear bigger, etc... He showed us the props, and explained to us how quick things are put away during and after a show. It was a great theater lesson.
