I've not blogged for a couple of days but that just shows the amount of rehearsing that we are doing. Saturday was a very bitty day. We were in Theatre and just practised odds and ends in the space.
Sunday, for the first time we did a full run of the show which was exciting to watch as well as very useful to see how the show actually fits together….where we come on and off and when everything happens. It sounds simple but you would be surprised how many people did not know the order of the show! Last night we were in the Theatre again and we did 2 runs (almost) of Act 1. We could have fitted 2 in if we had started on time. We were called for 6 to start at 7 but didnt actually start until nearer quarter to 8 which i found very irritating. Everyone is also really tired. The show is very draining both emotionally and physically and I think everyone could actually do with a break. I especially find it difficult due to the nature of my character being evil and serious and never being able to let rip and enjoy myself onstage. The one time i get to smile and enjoy the action is during the rape scene….which I understndably find very difficult. The result is that I am regularly coming out of rehearsals feeling very down.
Tonight however we do not have a long intense rehearsal as we are hosting a 1920's SPEAKEASY in the Cooler. It is open to eveyone so please feel free to come along and have some vaudeville style fun. It starts at 8pm and the band are playing 2 half hour sets inbetween which our lovable James Tarbit will be providing the entertainment. We are doing a short preview of the show at 10pm and apparently there is a casino…... so don your 1920's gear and get along to the cooler tonight.
