Light at the End of the Tunnel
The last few rehearsals have definitely been difficult. We have had long rehearsals of blocking and tech. It’s been a challenge to say the least. The rehearsal on Saturday was our opportunity to finish all of the blocking. It was pretty slow at first, but it picked up and was greatly successful.
Our next rehearsal was tech rehearsal, this is where things get real slow to learn all of the scenery and props movement and technical cues. We must have replayed some scenes fifty times, many of which involve the use of water onstage (always hard to pull off.) That was interesting. As the Assistant Stage Manager, I was given the opportunity to set up the backstage area and make sure that everything runs smoothly. Jake, the first Stage Manager, worked in the booth with Mr. Howard and Nic on the complex light and sound cues. Overall, although these rehearsals sometimes felt shaky, they were very successful in the end. The whole cast agreed.
