What’s Happening Backstage?

Act 14:17- “Yet he has not left himself without testimony: He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons; he provides you with plenty of food and fills your hearts with joy.”

 

Have you ever attended a live play or a musical and wondered, as I have, just how everything gets coordinated “back stage”?

I mean, costumes, make-up, hairstyles, props, background scenery, lighting, musical scores, and so much more.

How do they do it?

There are hundreds of people—paid and volunteers—that work weeks ahead of time on scenery, costumes, and schedules.

Things like scene and costume changes are gone over and over just as vigorously as the actors rehearse their lines.

Each performance has a scene and prop crew, light board operator, electric run crew, sound board operator, wardrobe crews, design assistant and stage manager (just to name a few).

All of these people must do their jobs, perfectly, so that performances go forward without a hitch.

Ever wonder who keeps our world going?

The Bible tells us God is capable of simultaneously listening to and answering prayer, controlling the seasons and the weather, dispensing things like discipline, grace, and mercy.

He controls gravity and the tides. He keeps our planet and our solar system in perfect balance. He creates new life.

Gives the term “backstage crew” new meaning, doesn’t it?
