Do you need record bits of the show for playback later in the show, or are
all of the sounds pre-recorded and you need need to cue the playback at
specific times, based on the performers' actions?
If you're playng back pre-recorded sounds, you could bring in a sequencer
like Rosegarden, or load the sound effects into a kit in Hydrogen and
trigger them as needed from Hydrogen.
I'm not 100% sure how you'd handle it if you need to record bits of the
show for playback later, but you'd definitely need to have a highly
optimized workflow to get the bits recorded, cleaned up, and sequenced.
I'm also pretty sure some of the other people on the list will have some
better ideas :)
