"Into The Woods" is almost entirely blocked (sweet), two more scenes to do tomorrow morning and then we can start really running sections and working on it ... polishing it and all that jazz. I'm really enjoying the personalities of the teens in this group - even the ones who are a bit shy, they keep pulling it out (the drama I mean or the character) when I ask them too! ;o)
"Aristocats" is not quite as far along - which I think is predominantly due to the cast being large (4 Aristocats, 12 Alley Cats, 6 Dogs, 1 Mouse, 2 Geese, Evil Edgar and the Aristocats owner Madame), 27 kids; and that the ages of most of these kids is 6-8 years old - but I digress. It is coming along nicely, I got a few more things blocked today - and got them looking pretty good - and we've got to fill in a few holes, but I think we're about half way through the show (or maybe a little father). This group of kids is good too, though we've got a few "handfuls" in the group (which probably add to where we are or aren't at this point in the script/week).
So woo hoo!!!
Funny thing ... my friend Arlene, who's the second camp I'll be working at, well she and I have been playing phone tag since I landed in Vegas. Same time zone now but we can't seem to get each other on the phone ... ha ha ha ... either I'm at work and she's free or vice versa ...
:o) And that is all for tonight. Goodnight Bremerton, WA!
