For those of us in town for fall break, we will be taking advantage of uninterrupted days on stage to handle technical aspects of SPAMALOT.
This Friday, we will be working on the projections and clean up of the booth and costume room from 1-4 PM.
Saturday, I will be working on painting and clean up of the shop from 1-4 PM.
Sunday, I will be working on organizing props, setting fog machines and finishing clean up from 1-4 PM.
By doing so, we can most definitely ease the pressure of technical rehearsal at the end of the month. This is by no means a requirement! Some of you expressed that you will be in town over fall break and would like to help. If you have time on your hands and would like to stop by Friday, Saturday, and/or Sunday, there is plenty to do, and you will help your fellow actors transition to the most time intensive part of the show. Everyone has been working so hard and it shows! Keep up the good work!!
As we near opening, the demands on a director increase. Because I’m often preparing last-minute plans, I may be scarce in the minutes leading right up to rehearsal. HOWEVER, being available for you is just as important. Given that, know this….
Unless there is the introduction to a film or a led discussion going on, I can step out of any class right now to answer questions or give input/notes/be a sounding board. My schedule is very heavy with cinema classes this semester, and the many screenings make it possible for me to keep an ear on things from the next room and still be available to you. I’m usually in the booth during lunch, so come up and knock. Even try X, although I may be multi-tasking with setting up chapel. The most important thing is that you come by if you need even the smallest, show-related thing. Even if I can’t answer your question right that minute, we can set up a time that works for both of us.
Also, I probably need a couple of people to play French artists and a mime. If you’d like to do this in adoration of the wooden rabbit, let me know today!
