Written by Hannah deNevers (Morticia) January 9, 2015 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

Written by Hannah deNevers (Morticia) Jan 4, 2015 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

  http://youtu.be/UgOhrhZWrYw Written by Hannah deNevers (Morticia) January 3, 2015 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

    Written by Hannah deNevers (Morticia) January 2, 2015 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

Jan 26, 2014 Well, that's a wrap.  Shrek's all done, and for me CSOPA's all done.  But to be honest, as sad as it is, I'm ready.  I think after A Year with Frog and Toad I didn't feel like my time at CSOPA was over but now I do.  And that's not at all

SUNDAY NIGHT. I'm currently eating an actual dinner right now.  And sitting.  And still slightly green.  And it's awesome.  Super sorry I haven't blogged in a while but I've been doing this weird thing called performing.  I'm in this show called... um... Shrek.  I think.  Either way it's pretty awesome.  So I'm going to take

January 16, 2014 WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. First two-shows-in-one-day complete!  A morning show for schools and then our second preview night.  In between shows people were either sleeping, doing homework, eating, or just chilling.  It was nice to have a break to work on my audition material.  I think our morning show was pretty good but definitely not

January 15, 2014 FIRST AUDIENCE! I honestly do not understand the people who don't get nervous. Like what?! I honestly almost peed my pants when the orchestra started playing the first couple notes of our show. I remember when I taught intermediate musical theatre at CSOPA all the kids would say that they're nervous. I

January 14, 2014 Well I'm not going to lie, today was a bit more of a bummer.  Basically every time I stepped on stage I screwed up.  Or some aspect of my performance didn't work like me tripping to the ground in tap, my tap coming off of my shoe resulting in me tapping in
