Stage Manager is Coming Backstage

By • Dec 18th, 2008 • Category: Pippin, ShowBizRadio

Mike is stage managing Prince William Little Theatre‘s production of Pippin. In honor of that, here is his song “Stage Manager is Coming Backstage,” sung to the tune of Santa Claus is Coming To Town.

You better learn your lines,
And all of your cues,
He’s in charge of fines,
And collecting your dues:

Stage Manager is coming backstage!

He’s making a list,
He’s checking it twice,
He’s gonna find out
who’s naughty or nice.

Stage Manager is coming backstage!

He sees you when you’re rehearsing,
He knows if you are late.
He knows all of your props and cues,
You want him to be your mate!

So, You better learn your lines,
And all of your cues,
He’s in charge of fines,
and collecting your dues:

Stage Manager is coming backstage.

Check your own props,
Gotta be on time.
Improvise not,
Or the walls he’ll climb.

Stage Manager is coming backstage.

Get your costume on,
You ought not to smoke,
Be quiet please,
As you wait with folk.

Stage Manager is coming backstage.

The folks out in the audience
wanna see a great show.
They’re gonna pay for their seats
out of their very own dough.

Oh….You better watch out,
You better not lie.
You should be ready,
I’m telling you why.

Stage Manager is comin’
Stage Manager is comin’
Stage Manager is comin’
Backstage!
