Wow. Last night’s rehearsal – with the cast up on our feet for the first time – was amazing! We had only one gal missing (off sick) and it was amazing to be on the main stage with so much positive female energy.
Event co-producer/coach/actor Dinah Watts lead us in a movement/vocal warm-up, then gave us our blocking instructions. We did a quick tops/bottoms run (where everyone just does their first and last lines) to help us get the blocking right, then after a short break, ran the whole thing.
