THERE’S NOTHING THAT KEEPS IT’S YOUTH, AS FAR AS I KNOW, BUT A TREE AND TRUTH. -Oliver Wendell Holmes
Cara saw this quote on on a tea bag she received during tech yesterday and we all thought it summed up what we are working on.
Tech is going very well. Technical rehearsals are always hard. There is so much to do in such a short amount of time. We have an amazing creative and tech staff that are keeping things running smoothly. The last few days have been start and stop. Building lighting effects, adding more props, and adding costume elements as they are finished. Last night was our final dress rehearsal and things ran very smoothly. We have a small audience in attendance and enjoyed what they saw.This afternoon we will spend time cleaning and fine tuning the show in preparation for tonight first preview!
