"The setup is simple with a few added things for Sound Effects in the show.

No room for a marimba or chimes so I used a xylophone with mallets played an octave lower for the marimba and chime notes. Crotales were played on a Wurlitzer 1919 Concert Bells.

Miller Machine made quick changes easy!”

"After a week or two of rehearsals there is usually a performance or two of the show for an invited audience. Sometimes these performances can be intense if there are important people in the room, or if certain sections of the show feel under prepared. This is why it’s so important to know the score and script very well."

"The unique part of Groundhog Day was that the drummer had to play on stage, in a groundhog costume, wearing a giant groundhog head. Since I could barely see out of the head, it was impossible to read a chart (and there wasn’t a music stand), so it had to be memorized."

You’ll meet the most amazing people on stage, in the rehearsal room and in the audience."
