Time seems to be racing by. I can't believe we go up in less than a week. All of the loose ends are getting tied up, last minute projects are getting done, fliers are going up and I believe our set is now more or less complete. Now we just rehearse like crazy and hope that at the end of the week an audience shows up.
(If you are interested you can now buy tickets online by following a link on our "Home" page. Hint, hint.)
I'm still looking for a location for our Bollywood As You Like It. I have been getting some great suggestions that I will follow up on as soon as Midsummer is in performance and we're no longer rehearsing every day. I'm also getting a lot of great resumes for set designers interested in our production. I'll be interviewing people soon.
Once we have a set designer, we need to have a Bollywood movie marathon and brainstorming party. Please leave a comment with the name of your favorite Bollywood movie or music video. Yay! Fun research!
Now I have to go write my "Director's Note" for the program. This is the part I dread most of every production. How do you write about your vision for a play without sounding pompous or overly sentimental? How do you convey all of the love and passion and frustration that goes into creating a production in a couple of paragraphs? If you've got it figured out, please let me know.
Thanks again for reading. I'll post again soon and let you know about tech week and our opening!
