A rolling stage prop was accidentally kicked into my harp riser by a singer placing his foot on it during rehearsal. If I had not caught the harp, it would have been knocked into the percussion section, which would have caused a domino effect of thousands of dollars of damaged instruments. Not only that, the singer could have been injured. In hindsight, I should have asked the stage manager to make sure that the prop had chocks behind the wheels. I had noticed it and wondered how safe it was. So, never take for granted that the stage is safe for the harp if there are objects near it that are on wheels. Any other horror stories that could be instructive and possibly save someone from a disaster?
