Setback and Determination to Go On, and Five week to go!

October 19, 2010

We had a major setback this week. James Greisler, Jr. quit.  It has been a roller coaster of a week.  We had to cancel, we're back, we had to cancel, and finally, we're back:)

We have practice, again, as planned, on Sunday, October 21.  The show must go on!

The show must go on! and on it will go. We have continued to move forward.

The past week has been very hands on. We have started the blocking for both Robin Hood and Arsena. The fabric has been cut and Giorgi has started to sketch the Robin Hood backdrop. It looks great!

Despite having only half the cast present, on Sunday we blocked the Ballroom, Governor's Office, and Mountain scenes from Arsena.

On Wednesday, because Chuck was at work, we reviewed this blocking. I was impressed. The stage is busy and the action is engaging. Guard 1 and 2, in particular, are doing a fantastic job. Their characters compliment one another; their lines are quick and their movements are funny.

After Chuck arrived, we started the blocking for Robin Hood. Robin Hood is an easier script, so the blocking moved more quickly. We completed the first village scene. It is going to be very dynamic. At the beginning of the scene, Alan's character performs a song. At rehearsal, it sounded like music to my ears (and there wasn't even music being played!).

Moving forward, we need to really come together as a team. It is imperative that we finish the blocking this week because we are a few days behind. Despite this, I have no reservations. Sarah, myself and Chuck are fully confident in the actors and actresses abilities – this week was a testament to that!
