There Were Public Service Announcements Between Each Act

They needed a way to communicate with the audience, so a staff member, Edward “Chip” Monck, would take the microphone to deliver announcements. He would alert the crowd to unattended children and notify the people where they could find help.

So, anything they needed the crowd to know, Chip would announce it between the acts. For example, “Kenny Irwin, please go to the information booth for your insulin.” or “Paul Andrews, Mike needs his pills and will meet you where he did yesterday.”
