Lake Dillon Theatre director of development Mari Geasair prepares to open the box office using a tablet after cold temperatures injected unwanted set delays, electrical hassles and computer problems into the usual opening-week preparations.

Lake Dillon tradition calls for an opening-night champagne toast with the entire audience, which comes early for both a pre-show prep discussion led by artistic director Christopher Alleman, and stays late for a post-show talkback with the cast.
