The brilliant costume committee is doing fittings and starting to pull the show together visually in between the cast learning dance numbers!

What are some rehearsal highlights so far?

“Probably singing Hard Knock Life.”

“Learning the dance to “I Think I’m Gonna Like It Here”. We got to be staged, and everything and that was a lot of fun.”

What encouraging things are happening at rehearsals? 

“Rachel always makes sure all the orphans know what they’re doing and when. It’s so helpful. I love it.”

“One girl wasn’t feeling well, and someone went over right away and made sure she was okay.” 

“there’s a lot of coming together and being like, ‘We can do this!’ because there’s a lot of people who can dance and a lot of people who are struggling — I’m always in the second group — and the dancers care for the “non-dancers” and are like, ‘Don’t worry, you got this.’ It’s just been really beautiful.”

What’s the cast looking forward to? 

“I’m excited about doing new things with my friends and making new friends, too.”

“I’m really excited to see Easy Street and see how that comes together. Those characters have such complex relationships, and I’m excited to see how they deliver that. They chose really great actors for that.”

What would the cast like to ask you pray for? 

“That I remember everything that I have to do.”

“My biggest prayer request is that I don’t lose my voice!”

“That everyone would have fun, no matter how big or small their role is, and that everyone would work together as a team to make the show amazing.”

“I’m excited to see the show come together because we’re all doing different parts. We don’t always get to see what other people are doing until we all come together. Our efforts come together to make one art piece. It’s like a big puzzle.”

They have a few prayer requests, too:

“Pray that every day God has the show in His hands, and He’ll bless us all with it!”
