Halfway through

Writing about web page

Well, last nights show was even more amazing than the first night – woohoo. I dont care if I sound big headed, we ROCK!

If you have never seen any student drama at Warwick, I recommend this show to get you started. There are still tickets available for tonight, and Saturday is selling fast. You have 2 chances left!

The Wild Party is underway!

Writing about web page

Well….the first night is done and if I do say so myself it was AWESOME!! Everything went really well and and audience seemed to really enjoy it. I got some really nice feedback after the show. We all came out on a big high, everyone beaming from the excitement… and the good news is that we get to do it 3 more times! Drinks in the bar followed by curry in Leam made for a late night, and a tired Bex this morning…..but its production week, and I love it!

I also want to say thankyou for everyone who came to watch last night. The audience was much fuller than we expected it to be and you were great (apologies to the guy who I made jump!). If you havent seen it yet, remember you only have 3 more days. Dont let it be one of those things where you say 'Oh, yeah, I wish I had seen that…'

Warwick Arts Centre, Main Theatre
7.30pm, Tickets £8 (£6)

I know i generally use my blog for promotion but i had to put this is as i found it hilarious! I particularly like point 7!

Ten Top Trivia Tips about Bex!

  1. Devoid of her cells and proteins, Bex has the same chemical makeup as sea water.
  2. Bex once lost a Dolly Parton lookalike contest.
  3. On stone temples in southern India, there are more than 30 million carved images of Bex!
  4. Bex is often used in place of milk in food photography, because milk goes soggy more quickly than Bex!
  5. The number one cause of blindness in the United States is Bex.
  6. Bex can run sixty-five kilometres an hour - that's really fast!
  7. Over 2000 people have now climbed Bex, with roughly ten percent dying on the way down.
  8. If the Sun were the size of a beach ball then Jupiter would be the size of a golf ball and Bex would be as small as a pea.
  9. The state nickname of Iowa is 'The Bex state'.
  10. The fingerprints of Bex are virtually indistinguishable from those of humans, so much so that they could be confused at a crime scene.

Opening Night…...It's Opening Night!

Writing about web page

Tonight is opening night of THE WILD PARTY - A jazz musical set in the 1920's portraying both the decadence and debauchery of the era.

After a long weekend+ of rehearsals (with a few more to lot in this afternoon), it finally time to raise the curtain and show everyone what i've been rattleing on about for the past few months!

So if you are free tonight, please come and support us. A lot of effort has been put in by a lot of people. The show starts at 7.30pm and it is in the MAIN THEATRE of the Arts Centre. Tickets are £8 (£6 for students)

See you there

Speakeasy success

Last night was the Wild Party 1920's speakeasy in the cooler. It was a really successful night and I can say a great time was had by all.

Big well done goes to Chris for all the work he put into making it a fantastic night.

And now with a week to go before we begin officially its all getting very exciting! See you at the show!

Look out for these round campus – very exciting. Even if I do look like I've just murdered someone!

1920's speakeasy

Writing about web page

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.

Aches and pains

Writing about web page

Last night we had a very intense dance rehearsal. We only did 3 numbers (Intro the scene 5/The Juggernaut, Let Me Drown and Wild Wild party) but we went over them in lots of detail and perfected them! They are pretty big important dances so it was good to nail them.

It was particularly useful to nail the Juggernaut as we will be performing it on Tuesday in the Cooler at the 1920's speakeasy! YOu should come…its going to be a fn night I think and a chance to get a sneak preview of the Wild Party. I know that the band is going to be playing so clearly it os going to be lots of fun. Tickets can be bought through Advance or the Union website and cost a measly £3!

So today I have woken up with very achey muscles after giving my all last night, with a particularly bad neck :S Ah well….its all in the name of art, and I have to go and do it again tonight anyway!

The first rehearsal of term

Writing about web page

Tonight was our first rehearsal of the term with officially 2 weeks to go before opening night! Quite excitingly we had our first (semi) singthrough with the band. It was really good to see it all come together and the band were awesome! Highlight of the evening had to be hearing 'Make Me Happy' goosebumps!

The Wild Party….the countdown begins

Anyone who followed my blog last year (anyone..?) will remember that I logged the final 2 weeks in the production of Honk! Back then I was a choreographer, but this time round im actually part of the cast and I will actually be on stage..ooooo

So to mark the occassion and to give the opposite view, I am going to chronicle the build up the The Wild Party from the perspective of a cast member, see how it compares.

As we go into the beginning of a new term there are a lot of rehearsals ahead (although I have heard that the band have already started at 11am this morning!!). It's a difficult show and there is a lot of work to be done….lets see if we can pull it off.
