This past Sunday was quite an eventful one, as the cast and staff of Yeomen came together to load in the set and alights in preparation for the show! We still have nearly 3 weeks until opening, but there’s no time like the present to get ready for our full tech runs after spring break.
Over the course of the day, we finished up build, started on extensive painting, and even hung up a cyc to surround the beautiful Tower of London! I don’t want to spoil things too much for our audience, but look forward to one of the most realistic sets HRG&SP has produced, featuring three-dimensional flagstones.

Load-In, as always, was a busy and eventful day, but we were graced by the presence of Whiskey – Agassiz Assistant Technical Director Liz Dean’s 9 month-old golden retriever! Nothing like puppy kisses to keep you going during a full day of tech!

We are less than a month away from opening, so be sure to reserve your tickets for Yeomen of the Guard now! We can’t wait to see you all there!
