Prep

I need the ensemble to bring something to write with/on. Pencil and paper.

Also, we are starting to work in close quarters. Make sure you bathe and use a low-fragrance deodorant each morning!

BATTLESTATIONS!

The puppet is arriving right now. We need some people associated with the show or anyone else to come to the Bishop center, specifically the loading door, and help us get this thing to its place. Trust me, we need humans. Right now.

Yeah, I know…

One of those days is Yom Kippur.

Obviously, that means that attendance is not mandatory for anyone observing it or anyone who made plans predicated on it as a school holiday.

Negotiations are underway. Yes, it’s a great day to get some work done. But we also recognize the seriousness of the holiday and the value of respecting it, even if it is not being individually observed.

What that means is that it would be a good day to make progress on the show, and that’s only if there are sufficient numbers of people both available and comfortable rehearsing on that day. We can figure it out when we’re together in person.

Best,
PMc
