SHREK Rehearsal Journal #13

January 9, 2014

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 […]

January 6, 2014

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 […]

January 5, 2014

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. […]

SHREK Rehearsal Journal #6

Well today was interesting!  We came to CSOPA to find out that the director for the day would be the lovely Lisa as our director was out sick.  And by sick, I mean deathly sick.  In the ten years I have been at CSOPA I do not think I can remember a time where he […]

SHREK Rehearsal Journal #5

Last day before New Years Eve!  Today was a lot like the others: run, stairs, core, burpees, stretching, etc.  We then got our notes from our run through yesterday and worked through them until lunch break.  Some people worked with Andrew on blocking or intentions, some people worked with Shelley on sharpening the choreography, some […]

What another lovely rehearsal!  We started with our regular warm-up (see previous blog entry) but instead of 1 minute of each exercise with a minute break, we did two sets of 30 seconds each with no break…  I still haven’t decided which ones burns more but I’ll let you […]
