Putting it all together!

The costumes and wigs have been finalized, and the cast has officially run through the full show!! Whooo! Tech Crew started to dive into the process today in their first workshop. In addition to meeting the cast and seeing the show, students in our Tech Workshop got to learn about lighting, make set models, and design costumes!

The full cast (62 students) filled our rehearsal room to watch each other’s scenes!

 

“I like eating lunch with everybody because we all get along really well and we know what makes each other laugh and it’s really fun.”

….and games! 

What encouraging things are happening at rehearsals?

“One girl asked for help when she was confused, which I think was a very responsible thing for her to do.”

“Two older girls standing in for boys who weren’t there was very sacrificial and selfless.”

The cast often stands in for each other, but our Creative Team members are quick to jump in too!

“Last week a girl got injured, and everyone rallied to help her and comfort her. It was so good to see everyone love her and make her laugh.”

What would the cast like to ask you pray for? 

“That I can stay in the moment and not be too in my head while on stage.”

“That we don’t get sick!” (or injured!)

“I pray that this cast gets to experience the magic of theater and take all of its valuable lessons and community outside of this production and they will support the arts for the rest of their lives. And I pray that they do all things for the glory of God.”

Becoming a great team!

This show is coming together! Sandy (the dog) even started to put her rehearsal time in. The cast was very eager to meet her!

Everyone is working hard and making progress. We’re only three weeks away from opening night, which has already sold out! Our cast cannot wait to perform!

What are some rehearsal highlights so far?

“Besides seeing Sandy? We pretended to be reindeers and we sang a “New Deal for Christmas.”

“The moment we walked out and saw Sandy.”
