Day 3 and possibly the longest day so far. Well, probably not the actual longest... but we've done nothing but learn dance routines today, so it's just taken the energy out of me! But it's going well so far.
We're due to finish up about 8pm tonight after we've done a run through of the script we've learnt so far!
Day 2 and we're in the Town Hall while the set is delievered and rigged at the Corn Exchange. It's such a beautiful building and the main hall has a wonderful reverb to it, and it makes the songs sound BIG!
We walked through Act 2 today and rehearsed the finale song - have a listen here:
Well, day 1 of rehearsals has been good so far. We're just on a break at the moment, so I thought I'd take a moment out to bring you up to speed with what's been going on.
After the breakfast show this morning at 10am I raced over to The Corn Exchange and met the entire cast and crew. I didn't appreciate until then just how big this show was - there were SOOO many people! The associate producer, the director, the musical director, the assistant musical director, the stage manager, the wardrobe managers... so many important people!
We said our "hello's" and then we ventured off to the stage to have a walk through of some of the scenes. It's now nearly 6pm and we're still going through the first act. In an hour or so, we're going to make a start on some of the songs.
