Dress rehearsal numero one!

I’M POOPED.  We started off two hours earlier than we usually do in previous years and still didn’t get out until 11:15.  I think it’s because there’s a ton more technical additions to this show as well as fast costume and makeup changes.  No fire curtains were dropped today though […]

Today was a bit of a longer day than yesterday but still just as fun!  We started right at ten to finish the Q2Q.  The second part of Q2Q went by in about two hours.  I think this was because we were all more comfortable with the stage, the set pieces, and moving […]

FIRST DAY WITH CAST IN THE CULTURAL CENTRE!

 

So I’ve had numerous rehearsals that go by quickly but none have ever gone by as quickly as today’s. Seriously, when Lisa (the best stage manager ever) told us this was the last scene we’d be tech-ing because we only had a couple more minutes left I actually […]

Well today marks the last day rehearsing at CSOPA for Shrek… and for me, forever.  If it wasn’t my last show I know it would be complete excitement but because it is my last show it’s a mixture of sadness and excitement… which are two completely opposite feelings.  But enough of me being […]

CURRENT DAYS UNTIL OUR CAST IS IN THE CULTURAL CENTRE: 3

CURRENT DAYS UNTIL OUR SET IS IN THE CULTURAL CENTRE: 0

Lovely.  But crazy.  Crazy for sure.  I honestly cannot believe how close it is til we’re there.  We will have an audience in less than a week.  That’s mind blowing to me.  Today […]

So today was our last clean up day before run throughs with the band begin.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t be there as I have a class that I lose 5% with every absence and considering I’m missing four of those classes as it is for shows, Andrew let me attend today so that my […]

First day back to school which means less hours at CSOPA which means days are a bit more boring.  Today was crazy at CSOPA though as all the other classes start up again this week.  There were parents and kids and backpacks galore. I love to see how much CSOPA has grown in […]

Last day of Christmas break.  I have heard numerous groans and may have inserted a couple of whiny remarks myself.  So begins the commute and the homework for the five minute intervals our cast isn’t on stage.  I think a lot of people really disagreed with me about doing this show… some because […]

Before I start the explanation of what this lovely day contained I just wanted to make an observation. I’m pretty sure that our cast is basically living and breathing CSOPA because whenever I ask somebody what day it is, nobody knows… because it simply doesn’t matter what day it is. […]

You know what’s even more “oh-my-gosh-we’re-actually-almost-at-opening-night” besides the day before sitzprobe?  It’s the actual day OF sitzprobe and that, ladies and gentlemen, was today!  We started the day off with our usual run, stairs, and stretching.  The core exercise today was a bit different… a bit harder I should say.
