"It's the Final Countdown!"
Yes, as the end draws near, excitement and nerves of the cast and crew are increasing. There are eight days until opening night. We have begun to receive various costume pieces and props, and today in rehearsal, Juliet Shatkin (Eurydice) tried on her very first wedding dress. It was gorgeous, of course. The Stones have also received props that have helped their characters, and the entire show, have a humorous and creepy tone.
The set the cast and crew have built, with tremendous help from Mr. Blauss and Nic, has turned out marvelous. Moments ago, we finished the painting on all the major pieces of the set and we are now only adding minor details. Seeing the set situated in the new theater gives everyone tingles. The renovations, though still not totally complete, change Allen into a professional theater... from the the new lighting grid and control booth, to backstage scene shops, dressing rooms, and green room. Everyone is excited to be able perform in this wonderful new space.
