My 11th unlucky try at the lottery on Sat! Am I the unluckiest person alive or can someone on here beat that record number of tries!

I tried a few weeks ago, first time in! (That probably didn't help.)

Just a tip for when you'll eventually succeed - don't pick a seat at the right hand side of the front row (when looking at the stage). Lots of acoustic spill from the drum kit there, at times making the vocals a little hard to hear. If I remember correctly, the drums are screened off towards the rest of the band in the pit but not towards the pit wall.

Great drummer (and band) though!

As a dep, you need to thoroughly prepare. It's not recommended to just "step in and sight read the score". Sitting in at least twice with the chair holder before you're on first is common practice. That also depends on the instrument, of course - an under-prepared drummer, for example, could do a lot more damage than, say, a viola player.

With regards to deps, every show has a set of house rules, often laid down by the orchestral fixer - such as how many deps can be on at the same time, sometimes a combination of deps on certain chairs might be ruled out, particularly when it comes to first-time deps etc.

Deps in the West End are usually of a very high standard and many of them cover on several shows.
