Three Weeks - The Final Stretch
In the final three-week stretch, the show is really pulled together, known to most as “crunch-time.” Rehearsals get progressively longer and the final touches of the masterpiece of a musical are added. In these weeks of steady focus, the cast of Urinetown has set their attention primarily in diving into the second act. Recently, we worked on “What is Urinetown?” and “Snuff that girl.” Cast members must also concentrate on preparing for the Act II line run on Monday. In addition, the cast has worked on executing various dance numbers, including “Mr. Cladwell.” In the weeks closest to performance, the technical elements and key details are added to the show. Over the past few Saturdays, cast and crew members have spent time measuring, nailing, and painting the set for Urinetown. As of now, the set is nearing completion, but still has work to be done on it. The upcoming period of tech week particularly will incorporate the essential technical aspects of the production including lighting, sound, costumes, and the like. Tech week is routinely the most stressful week with the stakes held high for everyone, but the cast and crew are confident that their copious amounts of efforts and time put into Urinetown will be well worth it in the end. We are very excited about the upcoming performances and hope to see you there!
