The Boy Wonder – production crew
by Pam Giroux

Behind the scenes of every production, there is a hardworking crew of dedicated volunteers who generously give hours of their time to make sure the show happens. The Boy Wonder is set in New York city on Broadway in the 1940’s, so the construction and design of the set reflects that period in history. Steve Scantlebury and his wife, Barb, were able to create a set which met with Director, Jeff Siamons’, greatest expectations. Not only did they spend hours at school working out details but also at home where they manufactured the signs and poster art which decorate the flats. Barb is also Stage Manager, and along with Steve, they keep the Props people on their toes with each scene change. As well as performing on stage, Rudy and Joan Hollywood, Linda Bush and John Stephen help with the props, do set changes and listen for Barb’s cues. It’s a busy place back stage.

At performance time, the House Manager’s role comes in to play with the 50/50 raffle at intermission, setting up chairs and getting the lobby prepared for patrons in the audience. This time, Ian and Betty Anne Willens are taking care of these preparations. And then at intermissions, Dianne Lake, a long-time supporter of NFLT, will be supervising the Canteen and providing refreshments.
