Hey y’all and welcome to the blog of Urinetown’s resident waitress – Kandi Kane. But you can all call me Lucy for short 😉
This week in Urinetown we had our Technical Rehearsal (on Monday evening) followed swiftly by our dress rehearsal (on Tuesday evening). These both went relatively pain-free and rather smoothly. This can only be put down to the sheer hard-work and team mentality our entire cast and crew have had from the start of the rehearsal process. Personally, I have never felt quite so honoured to be a part of a show. From every member of the cast, to the wonderful crew and technician team, to our gorgeous props ladies, to the people responsible for the costumes and the set, EVERYONE has just brought their A game.
Monday night’s tech saw us really getting our teeth into the intricacies of our set and the way it all works – I won’t say much more – if you want to see it for yourself (and trust me you really do) get down to the Millfield and bag yourself some tickets while you still can!!
We managed to get through almost the whole show at our tech rehearsal – something pretty much unheard of in the theatre world – but again this can only be down to the level of professionalism being shown by everybody involved.
Tuesday night’s dress rehearsal really brought into reality the fact that we are opening to our very first audience this evening! HOW EXCITING! Other than an issue with a floppy police hat (I have a LOT of hair) once again the dress rehearsal went without any trouble. We had some wonderful photographs taken of our dress rehearsal which you can catch making the rounds on Facebook this week!
MORAL OF THE STORY: We are in the best possible position in readiness for opening night. Our audiences are in for a real treat – just make sure YOU are among them!
Will not coming to see Urinetown be the biggest mistake of your life….I’m not saying yes….I’m not saying no either…
