Gold... and Glitter (Busker)
Another Christmas Eve! Another first night was over. Billy Chesterton sat alone, not heeding... scarcely hearing the chatter and laughter that cut off sharply as the stage door banged behind the departing company.
The Manager of our Theatre Lighting Department, Mr. L. G. Applebee, has been accorded two honours, which are well worth recording.
Queries - Lighting an Apron Stage
In our last issue of Tabs we mentioned that we were introducing a feature under the heading of 'Queries', where we would deal with a specific problem each month. 'Ours is a fairly modern (1931) Amateur Theatre. The stage fitted throughout with Strand Electric equipment - three battens and floats.
You know we are really very good people to Amateur Dramatic Societies. Everyone knows, or should know, the service we give in the matter of Stage Lighting, both as regards advice generally and in hiring equipment, and now we want to introduce you to another feature, which, we hope and believe, will be welcomed equally enthusiastically.
