Well, yesterday's tech rehearsal was exactly as we thought it would be: bumpy, painful, and frustrating. Between stuck doors, broken set pieces, non-functioning sound systems, and illness, nothing seemed to go right. But, to quote a favorite song of mine from Kiss Me, Kate:
So it looks like we're actually right on schedule!
We have roughly three weeks until opening night. Yes, there's a lot to do between now and then. But I know we can do it!
Today we worked on Scene 9 and the "machine" for Scene 12 (which will build up to the machine in the headmaster's office and the doomsday device in Scene 15) and it looks pretty good. Check out the schedule for what we're doing the rest of the week.
