Update Monday 18th January....
Ten more sleeps until the dress rehearsal! -it's all becoming very exciting - thanks to Davie Hector the set is extremely robustly built and Maree Christie has been busy with her paint brush along with Emma & Rachel Lawson and Heather Cowie.
Sunday was a fun day at the hall as the backdrop is now up, primed and stretched and I'm ridiculously pleased with the results - I hope everyone else likes it!
We spent Sunday afternoon in a slow run through with - for the very first time one scene following another in the correct order -and trying very hard to make sure everyone knows where they are supposed to be at a particular time. The singing is coming along - just crucial that words are secured - and with Alison doing a little (and in some cases a lot....you know who you are.....)prompting we mosied through the script. In our first scene my heart is bursting with pride as it youngest stars are very nearly word perfect -and it's a long scene too - I suppose they don't have tax returns to fill in or have to worry about the weather for that matter!
Scene 2 we are now searching for a replacement postie - as our proposed star has had to withdraw....Im beginning to get the feeling folk are avoiding me again, someone told me on Friday her husband had wanted to speak to me about something but wasn't going to telephone incase I talked him into it!!
Scene 3 and my fishermen - David having slipped on ice was in a great deal of pain but soldiered on! -and Fin got his lines out without dissolving into giggles for once.Most excitingly of all in the prop department our very own professional set designer Frankie Collier has made the most awsome fish head for the school scene. Diana has done a really GREAT job in choreographing the teenage "chicks" and my lady moppettes have done an awsome job of choreographing themselves
Fingers crossed it's going as well as can be expected!......and hurrah Ive just found a postie -that's the lesson - there are no problems only opportunities!
