Ok...this past 3 weeks have been like a roller coaster ride. Two full weeks of rehearsal 10am-7pm and one tech week better known as "Hell Week". Those days consisted stop-and-go rehearsal from 12pm-12am. Talking about tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeeddddddddd(tired) lol. Two-week rehearsals can be very stressful if you don't play your cards right. Try as best as you can to be familiar with the play and score(read it and youtube the hell out of it). This way you have an idea how the show looks, sounds, the plot and get a overall feel for the show. The show previewed on Friday July 15th and premiered on Saturday. During hell week, we would've never thought the show was going to come together. Everyone scared and on edge. Emotions on high+tension+small malfunctions= all the makings of a great show, weird right. Opening night was Fantastic!!! We seem to be so in tune with each other and remember everything we knew we would forget once the bright lights flooded the stage. I was so happy to see my family at opening night, them being there made everything real. I am in my first long-run show and it's really opening night. During rehearsals I felt no real nervous energy, not even mic'd up during hell week. But as the lights went up and I saw their faces a rush a adrenaline ran through me.
Ok so let me upload a few pictures and my favorite reviews of the show. Besides I know ya'll are tired of reading by now lol.
