First Read Thru

Woop woop, Circus Olympus' First Read Thru was a success...even though we didn't get through the final myth (which is mostly movement and very little dialogue).  I did however give them a brief "this is what the final myth is" just before rehearsal ended, so they "know" the entire show.  They laughed a lot, and at the right places, so I think they like it!  And I hope they are all "good" with the roles I gave them.  It took almost 3 hours yesterday to actually cast the show - we already cast who was in it, this was casting those kids into the different myths.  Phew!!!

Here we go.

Other than the actual rehearsal ... reading of the script, listing all the movement sections - so I can get on "choreographing" them - and my mind is teaming with things to do ... this is exciting!!!  ;o)

Und zat is all for now!
