Ahhhh here we go folks, only one more full day before “The Lorax” goes up! Today was tiring for us all, but we are SO close to finishing up with blocking. Tomorrow we will “Stumble Through,” the whole show. This means we’ll run everything, (acting, songs, dances,) in order-but the directors will stop to clean things up.
On my drive home today I started to think about, on average, how many times we actually get to rehearse a single scene. We block it, if we’re lucky we run it after blocking, we stumble through, and we do the dress rehearsal. 4 times. In the real world, that is not a reasonable request of a 10-14 year old. At SPAE, we have a community of rockstars.
We were so happy to have Todd Roach return today to offer Part Two of the Drumming Workshop. The campers drum in two groups- one group will open our Friday night performance, the other will open our Saturday performance.
SPEAKING OF PERFORMANCES: Here’s the Facebook event to “The Lorax,” be sure to invite your family and friends, it’s going to be fantastic!
