The above quote says it all and as any good “drama kid” knows – the closer you get to a show the more your “life” goes out the window!
There are a lot of rehearsals on over the next 3 weeks leading up to the October break and your first holiday in a while!
Verona is next week and this week is crazy bsuy for Firefly and Dragonfly alike. it must be coming a s a bit of a shock to some of Dragonfly and possible some newer Firefly members – as to the intensity of the rehearsal period – unfortunately Verona is not one of those show experiences you can spread over a longer period and it is often the case you are used more in the final 2 weeks than you ever are during the early stages.
For Dragonfly – the work of fitting in to this theatre masterpiece begins now and you will have to sacrifice a few things this week to be able to give your time to this process. Anyone who thinks they will struggle with this – from a school point of view or for any other reason should get in touch with me or Colleen and we will see what we can arrange. Hopefully this week you will cope well and your time management skills will kick in to save you!
As to the September Weekend – it appears that unless you are geographically “away” – you will be spending it in Verona – Verona PACE that is!!
If I could pull Saturday’s panto rehearsal to give you extra time I would – but I can’t – time is already being taken away from it to give to Verona. But at the end of the day it is all for a collective show good!
So keep an eye to the horizon – there is an end in sight – I know you all love theatre – but sometimes it can overwhelm you – like a giant tsunami – washing everything else away with it.
But it will soon be over – and calm drama seas will return – for a little while at least – unless of course you are on our giant Russian Panto ice breaker ship – then it is is just another day “out in the rehearsal ocean” once again till Christmas!
” Hi diddlee dee… an actor’s life for me!”
Grab your black t-shirt my fellow thespians – and let’s get dramatic – ” I can’t I have rehearsals” is the name of the game!
ps – check social group house pages regularly – for updates on all rehearsal times ( those that don’t look – don’t learn!)
