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!

“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.”

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.”

“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.”

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.”
