Well folks, we're getting close now... In one week, we will be having our Final Dress Rehearsal for our show. But wait! How is all of it going to come together? We've talked about acting, directing, costumes, dance, and set building... but what about those finishing touches that really create the feeling of magic on the stage?
Ladies and gents, today you get to meet two more members of our team: Michael and Stan are our Lighting Designer and our Sound Designer, respectively.
So today, we ran through the entire show, giving Stan and Michael an idea about what light and sound cues would be needed for the production. Our director, Brian, sat next to the designers during the run and talked them through all of the ideas that he had in mind for the cues throughout the show. Sometimes he would even clamber up onstage to point some things out or to demonstrate something to the actors.
Here, Brian is clearly very angry with camper Alena, as he is pointing to her, venomously, with a scowl on his face.
I'm just kidding, of course. I think he was saying something like, "Can we get a spotlight on these girls?"
So this is Shaun, wrapping up my blog for the week--I'll check in with you all next week to talk about where we're at!
