Script Cards

AT40 used cards to write scripts on for Shadoe to read. Cards were also used to show song information for the staff to use when compiling the scripts, timing the show, and for compiling the year-end charts (for years that AT40 made their own). Below are some examples of the cards used. Click any image to see the full size version.
