Friday's Post

Time Travel to Yesterday, July 29th,2011:

Tech went ... long ... and a bit confusing to begin with ... and then it went really well!!! Both shows came together, kids moving set pieces they'd never seen until then, using costumes for the first time, using props some of which also were a first time use ... the sweeeeeeeeeeeet-est chicken prop (with wheels, yes I said wheels) made by a member of the staff ... and then when the confusion got unconfused, the kids really rocked it out. Some were still too soft and their characters were not as present as I know they can be, but they really did a great job!!!

I've a list that's "long" ... with a few things to give out to the kids when they arrive for their shows ... but even if they don't get implemented they'll be great!

And so ... I must now make a set change list for both shows before I head over to the theatre.

Show day today ... break a leg all!!!

And Happy First Anniversary to my friend Arlene and her Husband Aidan!!! (Arlene's the one who's gotten me out here to the North West!)
