Good news

It looks like we are going to add a matinee on Saturday. I know this is a last-minute newsflash, but demand for the show is so high, the school has made this allowance. I think it will be at 1 PM. Two things:

1. Please plan accordingly. Your call time on Saturday is 10 AM unless we have to adjust it further for make up.

2. Please keep this to yourselves and let the school announce it. When tickets become available, please allow this performance to be available to all those in the general community who got word too late to get tickets, but would like to see the show.

Go home.

The word came through. Today’s rehearsal is canceled. Please go home as soon as possible.

Plans

We are tentatively, kind of, sort of still on. When school ends, as long as you are cleared to move between buildings, get to the bishop center as soon as possible. I wouldn’t even move your car. Just hightail it down here. Then, it’s a little bit touch and go. Mr. McBrien and I will stay in contact, monitoring the situation, and depending on his instinct, we may or may not leave.

Past five minutes

People are doing a very good job staying off their cell phones. But now I need someone to call a hold so I can communicate.

If someone could do that, I would really appreciate it. This is about the only tool I have left to communicate.

Tickets are available!

Just check the rotating banner on our homepage, WebbSchool.org, and look for the panel about Dracula to come by. If you refresh, it theoretically is the first slide that should come up.

Again, please come to as many dress rehearsals as you like. If it’s at all possible to limit attendance to one formal performance, the show will have the greatest reach possible. Thank you for collaborating with us on this!

Saturday is back!

Based on conversations that I had the stage manager have, and Mr. Perkins’ willingness to volunteer and haul me around via Skype on an iPad, we are going to try and run things Saturday. Let the standard times that had been listed before apply so it will be at least one more thing that is not disrupted. Thanks to everyone for being so flexible!

Closed for renovations.

Splitting the difference between letting me get better and addressing what I understand is mass exhaustion of the cast, we are taking today (Thursday) and Saturday off.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.

Schedule.

Format is informal, but this should give you what you need.

Founders Break

The only conversation I can recall having about someone being gone that weekend is with Dan. From my memory, everyone else is going to be in town. While we won’t work for the entire weekend, it’s my expectation (unless I have forgotten some specific conversation) that everyone will be available to rehearse over that break. It was listed as a possibility on your audition form, and I think it’s the only way for us to make up for this lost time.

As far as specific rehearsal times go during that, I’m not certain, and I won’t really know what the show needs until I see how we do with remembering blocking, profoundly increased vocal projection (hint hint), performance commitment, etc. As I said in my last post, some of that will depend on how the next couple of days go. Ideally, it will still feel like a vacation… just a vacation in town where we get some work done on the show.

If you have any questions, feel free to give me a call. 865-310-8668

Thanks!!
