Swift caribou? No, that won't do.
A loon? (Aside) won't fly in Saskatoon.
A noble beaver on a rocky crag--
CHORUS OF LEGISLATIVE AIDES
(Pianissimo) A vision of our flag!
Inform Richard that the stage is not in fact built to hold a chorus of thirty Mounties on horseback
Try not to think about why he's wearing that horrible scarf
Jesus, that's Darren's scarf; are they sleeping together?
Convince Darren that new fire safety regulations mean no more fucking pyrotechnics, ever
Forge fire marshal letterhead?
Personally destroy all pyrotechnic capabilities after hours tonight
Ask Richard what he means by "custom-built fog machine," ask re: budget
Inform them once AGAIN re: Mounties on stage
Nope, fog machines can't do that
Ask re: lighting/sound cues for finale
