What's on the Prop Table?

This is a little like those "what's in your dance bag?" columns:

On the prop table backstage, we have:
Gatorade, Pedialyte, water (Pedialyte is the latest trend in rehydration)
ibuprofen and aspirin
giant bottle of Vitamin C tablets
Hairpins, bobby pins, hairspray (for emergency touch-ups)
Various people's personal water bottles
Assorted bits of warmup clothes
Tambourines (for Tarentella)
Hand sanitizer (jumbo economy size)
A prosthetic arm and leg (no cause for alarm--- these were props for Il Distratto)
Usually there'll be signs taped above or near the prop table explaining the bow sequence for each ballet, too.
