REHEARSALS - Week ONE of "Much Ado..."

MONDAY - 5pm-7pm (approx) READ THRU - FULL CAST, Production Crew
TUESDAY - 5pm- 6:30 (approx) Wedding Interupted - Act IV, Scene 1
WEDS (Switch)- 5pm- 6:30 (approx) Opening - Act I, scene 1
THUR (Switch)- 5pm- 6:30 (approx) Arrest and Depostion - Act III, scene 3 / Act IV, scene 2
FRIDAY 4pm- 5:30 (approx) "Dinner" - Act II, scene 1


From this schedule, you should realize something very quickly: YOU are expected to know what scenes you are in. If you speak, the script will clearly indicate it. If you are PRESENT, but silent, I will be letting you know. We have approximately 5 weeks from 1st rehearsal until opening. Most rehearsals will be from 5pm and will last 90 minutes to 2 hours, with some actors releasing early and some not called at the beginning of the session. Exceptions: Any night when the boys basketball team plays at home, we will start at 4pm and rarely run longer than 90 minutes.

PLAN NOW to NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR WORK or MOST OTHER COMMITTMENTS from Feb 7 until we open. Plan Homework around that crunch time, too. FEBRUARY 9 will be a Rehearsal Day (ONLY WEEKEND REHEARSAL.)

February 11, 12, & 13 will be 5pm call for costume and make-up, with actual rehearsal starting at 7pm and running UNTIL WE FINISH, which will get closer to 9pm each time, but will run OVER almost certainly. Prepare your parents NOW, please.

We must stage the entire show during the first two weeks. and be mostly off book in that same time. We will then have 2 more weeks for character and polish. And then we are in tech... and then we have an audience.

So if anyone is like me and watches awards shows, then you may very well be as dissapointed as I when you learn that the 3 hour ceremony with all the tension built up around the announcing of the winners, will be taken down to a 1 hour press conference announcing the winners throughout the hour.

I for one, think this sucks.
