I do a check of the backstage sound system every night. I used to simply do a check and ask an actor to come tell me if they heard it, but that never worked. Finally, I began making the check "This is a test of the backstage com. Would someone please come give me today's password: milksop." I just pick a word that strikes my fancy. One cast (adults, really) refused to answer unless it was something obscene. I keep the ones for ATY very clean.
1. What words should I use for com check this week?
2. What is one of your favorite movie quotes?
3. Are you looking forward to the snow?
