The Final Curtain Falls

The final weekend of the show went quickly. Our second weekend went through a Thursday, Friday, Saturday night run and then closed with a Sunday matinee. My cast surprised me Thursday night. Usually, on the final performance, the cast and crew give the director some kind of show gift that is a signed show poster…

The Curtain Goes Up!

  The night had finally come! It was time to open the show.   All in all, I think the cast did a good job. They hit a spot or two with lines, but the audience enjoyed it. We usually have all patrons on opening night and this is typically an older crowd. They laughed,…

The Last Push to Opening Night

We are closing in on the opening of You Have the Right to Remain Dead with only two rehearsals left. Wednesday night was our open dress rehearsal. For this rehearsal we will open select friends, community groups, and board members to come in and see the show. This is helpful in giving the cast a…

Preparing Our Final Approach

There’s been a lot since I’ve given a show update last. Over the weekend, we had our tech rehearsal and first full dress rehearsal. Saturday was the tech rehearsal. We went through the show and skipped to the different light and sound cues we have in the show to make sure timing on these is…

Here’s Something About Me You May Not Know

I’ll have another post soon about how the show is going, but today I felt like getting some thoughts out there. I manage a couple of outlets on social media. I’ve got a Facebook profile, a Twitter account, a blog on WordPress, and a Tumblr account that I ignore and just push my blog to….

Held by Your Words

Of all the tools that you possess It is your words that I love most In a single word you cast out distress And remove my burdensome yoke Just like your touch your words give a shiver Your voice a soft caress Close by my side or miles away My need I feel pressed to…

You Aren’t Going to Believe This!

Ok, so this is what happened. After work on Friday (two weeks from opening night of my show) I get a call from the father of one of my cast members. He told me that she checked herself into a hospital where they have admitted her for a few days and she won’t know exactly…

I’m Just Happy I Know What Day it Is

There is so much going on right now! Aaarrrrrggghh! Ok, I feel better. Here’s a look at what I’ve been up to: Theatre stuff: last night was our first night off book. This is the rehearsal where the actors what we have scheduled without a script in their hands. Off book nights are that last…

No Mental Breakdown Yet

Okay, first up: show update. We had a rehearsal Saturday where I had a few scenes that we ran over several times to do some more focus on them. I know from my own experiences on stage, these kinds of rehearsals helped me out a lot when I was trying to get lines or timing….

After the Hurricane, We are Still Here

We lost a rehearsal this week due to the weather from Hurricane Irma, but we were able to get back to business on Tuesday and Thursday. We are one week away from being officially off book for rehearsals and some of the actors are getting nervous. They’ve made a lot of headway on their lines,…

The Television Tag

While roaming through the awesomeness that is WordPress, I came across a fun tag presented by A Geek Girl’s Guide. She tags the reader and I figured this would be fun. If you are reading this, consider yourself tagged. Let us know what you are watching. Favorite Shows Daredevil, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Battlestar Galactica,…

Remember to Breathe…

The show is now within one month of opening night. Wednesday was one of those moments where something that always seemed to be far in the distance suddenly became just around the corner. I’ve told myself to focus and keep breathing several times this week. Rehearsal Tuesday night went okay, even though I had only…
