Wednesday, and thar be no rehearsal this evening. The Italian rehearsal is when the cast normally gathers to recite their lines, but due to some scheduling with work and life and the director is pleased with how the first four performances went, she feels we are there in the zone. So she is giving this night off.
Four performances of Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs - A Panto are down and that only leaves three left this weekend. Now, we have a little break in the action. Normally, the director would hold an Italian rehearsal on Wednesday prior to going back on stage but this week she cancelled it since she was impressed on how well the show is progressing.
Each performances the play gets stronger and stronger, actors are comfortable in their roles and ad-libbing a line or two. It’s been a hell of a first few days, with drama not only on stage but behind it as well. A cast member or two had their doubts but in the end everything comes together nicely on the stage.
Now, this week is a week of rest and getting other things caught up as Christmas is just around the corner.
Been up since midnight and still got get to bed. Four days of performances at the local theatre does that to a body. Well, an old body, after today’s matinee performance I was drained and needed to recharge my batteries I guess. Came home and rested up some, figured I’d catch a nap on the couch but ended up sleeping for a bit. Got up and went up stairs to slip into comfy clothes ended up lying down on the bed and drifting off again in la-la land.
Had a strange dream and remember part of it as I got up at midnight so i came downstairs and jotted down. Thinking it would make for a good Little Fears story/scenario to run at a convention or whenever.
