*Some* schedule details….

We will be having fight choreography (details TBA soon) on Wednesday and Sunday.

On THURSDAY of this week, I will be blocking and working act 1, scenes 1-3 (aka 1.1-3)

On FRIDAY of this week, I will be blocking and working 1.4-5.

For Thursday and Friday, you are only called if you are in those scenes.  If we need ensemble for those (and we do), we’ll figure that out at the “speak-through” today.  That will be the Bishop Center.

For Wednesday and Sunday’s fight calls, those will be specified soon.  Thanks!

August 5!

Okay, we have a few more days off because summer is wonderful and we have a few people still out and about.

So far, the schedule is 1-4:30 in the music room.  We’ll have more details as things firm up.  It will be a read-through UNLESS one small factor makes it something else.

I look forward to seeing you!

Wrap up

Should be out by 7pm.

What I imagine…

As ever, tech Saturday is a maddeningly difficult day to predict. This is complicated a bit because we are taking tomorrow off, which, given the general demands of the show, is a good idea. If this were a regular show, with a regular schedule, I could abbreviate today into a rehearsal that would just have us going from light and sound cue to light and sound cue. Yes, we need to do that, but we also need to get in a regular dress rehearsal as well.

I would very much like to be done by about 5 PM, and I think this is extremely optimistic; I think it will probably go a tad later. One way or the other, I will do everything I can to keep you updated with our progress as we go.

Thank you!

Unless the roads are wildly hazardous…

Tomorrow, the smartest thing to do is to attempt to cover (if only lightly) the material from both yesterday’s agenda and the agenda on Sunday.  If that creates some sort of difficulty, please e-mail me.  Thanks!

Sunday!

Over the next day, I’ll be adjusting things based on the snowpocalypose.  The weather indicates that we should probably be fine with doing what we would have done yesterday.  If you do not see this blog post updated, that means that we will have rehearsal on Sunday. I will only update this entry if we have to cancel rehearsal due to weather.

UPDATED — Schedule is vaguely in flux. See article below.

This is only tweaked by a few pages.  It does not change the off-book date.  Thanks!

More soon, but in the meantime…

First day of school, first day of rehearsal!  3:45-6:30.  Read through!

Terminal Tuesday

 

We should be letting out by 6:30 PM or earlier on Tuesday. If there any concerns, just send me a note or give me a call. Thank you!
