Day 1 of rehearsals. Trumpets are blown.
We are in Camden for this momentous day.
Still Life Dreaming read really well. We are all very relieved.
Trumpets are blown again.
End of week one: We sang the songs, played games, meet the
characters: serious discussion ensues. Stop start stop start
stop start – when will it stop?
Right let’s get on with it! Time for a run through…but its only
week one!? Alright have a cup of tea and then we’ll run it.
The weekend: Homework is set by the director for the cast.
Groan–they thought they could have some down time – have
you meet the director?
Week 2: everyone bounces in bright and bushy tailed. Set
arrives. Sound arriving via ether slowly but surely.
Director is climbing all over the set – acting very strangely –
what not new characters? Designer has her heart in her mouth
– she’s gonna break something and I have no contingency to
Production manager wonders what was in the tea.
Lighting designer has submitted lighting plan to the venue. But
hold down it’s not been blocked yet – hells bells.
Jim says it feels like he’s been rehearsing for 21 days! It’s just
been 6 days…
Pete made more cuts…(on request)
Margaret’s got her baby…
Vicky’s decided Carnegie is a 21st century yout. (yes spelt like
that)…Sieska loves playing with the 3D graph…
We got a parking ticket today – not very happy. Doesn’t it just
ruin your day?
Watching the clock, watching the meter, watching out for the
warden…oh it makes me so cross all these stealth money
Checking out the AV. Not bad. Needs a few tweaks, lots of
opinions, but just have to wait to see it all in production week,
when it all comes together. Ha ha.
