September 1981 Show: Big Spenders

pic EmeraldGibson writes: I produced it and covered the party afterwards. We all had a hand in the choreography in our numbers and group numbers.

The floor director was another issue! As he did the cues, he forgot to turn off his mic and we heard his comments in the dressing room. He was surprised we filled the place. Dal had responded with a large number of security guards.

A couple of people came backstage that night to ask if they could be added to the show, but the lineup and cues were set, so no one could be added.

Advertising was done all over Dalhousie, basically making it an outreach to the gay community there, and some shops put up signs.

JimMcSwain did a story on it in the July, 1982 MakingWaves.2
