What an appropriately beautiful day. Elves have been working throughout the night, and good things are afoot. If I can do anything to assist you or make your day easier, please drop by. You guys have done an absolutely fantastic job and I can’t wait to see the show tonight. I hope you have a wonderful day, and if you’d like to drop by and say hello, I would love to see you.
The program will be around the theater tonight. If you get a chance, please do your part and proofread it. Everything you can. If there is an omission or a misspelling, we shall all share in the delight of culpability. So please, look at it, look at it, look at it.
4:25-4:35. Top of act two
435 to 440 proposal to Pem
440 to 445 rooftop
445 to 450 audion tube
450 to 5 Sarnoff gets dressed
5-505 First RCA scene
505-515 Final bar scene
515-520 Sarnoff’s wife visits him at work
520-550 Philo and Sarnoff
Go is in theory 6 o’clock tonight. However, if hair and make up need just a tad longer, go maybe 630. But no later this evening. If you’re used to a musical, this is around the standard starting time, once musicians are in place, for one of those shows.
You guys are just terrific. Just a reminder… we are going to aim for a GO!! time no later than what we have on the musical. No later than six. That may go past eight as we get the running time down, so just be prepared.
If any families wish to contact me, please do so at 865–748–3636. You are always welcomed to watch dress rehearsals!
We had an unexpected challenge this evening that slowed us down a tad. We started running act to a little while ago, and we will dismiss when it is finished. Thank you!
In general, we are aiming to have a go time for dress rehearsals no later than 530. That should get us out, ideally, around 730. Remember, families are always welcomed to watch any part of rehearsals.
We have been working very hard today. Our goal is to be dismissing in about an hour. Around 635.
1000-2000mg is plenty; it actually maxes out at 2000mg/day under very occasional circumstances where you think you may need that much.
So that my critical thinking creds remain legit….
On three occasions, I have felt something coming on. Each time, I took a strong dose of C. Each time, the symptoms vanished with amazing speed.
I have no evidence that the C caused the symptoms to abate. Correlation is not causality. It was just a helpful coincidence.
Be safe. Wash hands. Cough into the crooks of your sleeves, away from others. Don’t leave open drink cans out. Listen to your mother!
PS — If a family scheduled the day based on the earlier actor call, you’re welcome to come by and start helping the crew or just enjoy the theater early if you want. I’ll be here by ten.
