DAYS UNTIL CULTURAL CENTER = 1

SOOOOOOO EXCITED.

Our set has been moved in if I’m correct. We (the cast) are moving in soon. I can’t believe it. It honestly seems like a month ago we were still working through  and learning songs. It has gone by so quickly. It’s amazing and […]

So today was super rad and really interesting because we did our first run through of all the dances with the orchestra. Of course there were some bumps in the road. But we ran everything from the bug tap number, to the tango, the salsa (sorta) style dance (secrets). […]

Today was our second sitzprobe, which was totally awesome. Of course there were the little bumps in the road. As Andrew called it ‘Deer in the headlights look’ when a song didn’t sound exactly like the rehearsal track which I was very guilty. Other than it was wonderful.

There is […]

Today was our first sitzprobe!

Sitzprobe is a German term used in opera and musical theatre to describe a seated rehearsal—the literal translation of Sitzprobe—where the singers sing with the orchestra, focusing attention on integrating the two groups.

In case anyone didn’t know.

Basically we all do our regular warm up; run, […]

Today was a pretty decent day. Except for how cold it was, a lot of people are kinda getting sick and we are all getting a little anxious for the show. BUT ASIDES FROM THAT it was pretty good.

As usual our daily working on scenes and songs from notes that […]

Today was our second run through of the whole play. I’d say it went pretty good! Our usual routine an hour of running things that we need to tighten up; dances, harmonies anything that needs tightening up. Our run (which was soooo cold, with a wind chill of -398) and […]

Our first stumble through today! A stumble through is when we work through every scene from the beginning of the show to the end in order as if it’s a real show, but there are always a lot of stops and starts and that’s ok. Today was our first […]

Today was our second day back and I will be completely honest, I was pretty sore. And when I say pretty sore I mean I don’t think I’ve ever been that sore. Of course you know that you’ve been working hard when you get out of bed in the […]

Our first day back to rehearsal after our Christmas break. We had 4 days off.  I can’t speak for everybody. But my body is feeling the ‘Tango Tangles’, which is my little thing for how my body feels after doing The Tango. I’m sore for days but it is […]
