"Ready, Set, Go..."
Tonight at rehearsal, we were finally able to move from the rehearsal hall downstairs to the stage upstairs. And it's been a welcome move. The set is up (although it still needs to be largely dressed), and we now have something concrete to interact with (aka, real doors, windows, etc). And, might I add, she's starting to look very lovely too! If you've ever seen an Agatha Christie play, you know that her sets are quite charming. They have that early to mid 1900's British appeal that still hasn't gone out of fashion. It's comfortable, yet slightly stuffy. Functional, yet classy. Perfect for a murder mystery.
Afterall, what good is a who-dunnit without an eye-candy set, eh?! If the wealthy of 1930's England are going to mysteriously turn up dead, one might as well do so in style, right? :)
So, with only a week to go, we now get to start playing with the real thing. On Monday we add in costumes and tech, and on Thursday (Oct. 20) we gain our first audience. We're down to the wire now. Time to start playing some serious pretend!
Have a blessed Friday all, and until next time,
Your happily blogging actor friend,
