All done. Just like that *snap* it's all over. It's quite weird coming to work (@ 10:30am!) without you all here. I am grateful to all of you for helping to make this summer camp everything that it was. I hope you all take the memories and experiences with you into the new school year with fondness and joy. Please drop by anytime to say hello. See you around.
Today was a huge milestone: we ran the entire show from start to finish with lights, sound, costumes & props, and to be completely honest, it was a rousing success. All of the different pieces are finally fitting together, and the show is fleshing out
Opening night draws nearer, excitement is rising, and the show is coming together. Today we ran what was left from yesterday of Act Two, and then started from the top of the show and went through the entirety of Act One. There are still scenes and dances that need reviewing, BUT the skeleton of the show is there and looking hopeful. Scene transitions are smoother, and blocking is becoming more solid. Everyone, do not forget to PROJECT, and also ENERGIZE the stage with your presence. Rehearse your songs, dances, and lines every single night. You will all ROCK this, but you gotta remember to have fun with it!
P.S. Don't forget to dress as your character would tomorrow (wear what you did on Friday).
Rehearsing the Feargal and Michael fight scene, in slooooooooooow motion.
Indeed, the week of teching has begun. As you can see by the conflicted look on young John Stamos' face, this week is no joke. The cast and creative team of this show are putting in an incredible amount of work during the day. Today we finished cleaning our scene transitions and started tech. The addition of sound and lights adds so much to this production and it certainly gave more life to our performance today. There is still a lot of work to be done and as always, our success moving forward will be contingent upon the work our cast does at home. Please, come in tomorrow having reviewed your transitions, lines, songs, and dances. We cannot wait to show off our finished product this weekend! see you all tomorrow!!!
