High Noon!

I was slightly mistaken yesterday…. Actor call for tech is noon.

Thank you!



It sure would be swell if we could rehearse tomorrow, Friday. If you have other plans, then you have other plans. But if you can be there, it will help us a lot.


This week

I would like to attempt a run of the show every day for the rehearsals this week. Tomorrow may certainly be with book in hand. After that, we will have staff on the book until Tech. If we do not finish a run by the end of a rehearsal, we will pick up at that point the next day, finish, and then begin with the play once more. If you have any questions, please contact me. Thank you!

Coming up…

Something more elaborate is forthcoming. However, for now, the cast is called from 2 to 4 on Sunday and then, beginning Monday, we will start blocking. Beginning with the start of act one, we will do 10 pages a day. If you are not called within those pages, you are not required to attend.

This will be fine tuned later. However, if you have any questions about where exactly we are starting in beginning for a given day, if you were on the edge, please come see me.

We will not be rehearsing on Martin Luther King day, nor on the Sunday immediately prior.



Normally, there would be a little more accompanying this posting, but we are caught between pre-Christmas craziness and a reasonable desire to know what the cast is as soon as possible.

There will be more details to come, and more casting to happen. But that will probably happen at readthrough’s, etc. Please use the materials you already have to try to get off book by the time we return to school. Do your best. I’m proud of the work everyone did at the auditions, and I think this is going to be an extremely strong show, top to bottom. Almost everyone is going to be playing MANY more characters than are listed here.
