Lights, Costumes, Sound…Cross Country Team
Every thing was a go for the dress rehearsal on November 2nd, not only were the last of props and costumes added in but we also had a bit of an audience too. The ensemble was really able to get a sense and vibe of what the play would really be like because it was our first run through and we had the energy of the awesome cross country team (who came sharply dressed) to work from. We had gone to one of their practices where we ran with them and now it was their turn to "step into our shoes." Adrenaline was high and everyone was excited to perform –and excited to fix many of the kinks from tech dress. One of our biggest problems of the night was pacing, so at the end of tech dress we took down some notes to improve on that for opening night. For example, we tried to do a quicker job picking up our cues, leaving shorter spaces between lines. Jake did an excellent job up in the booth with the light board, while Michael really became familiar with props placements back stage. The ensemble left rehearsal exhausted but pumped for opening night!
