So, that’s another Dress Rehearsal down.
As an actor (not that I was ever a particularly good one), I always used to get a huge buzz after a dress rehearsal and an enormous post-show low. As a director, the pattern is different: I get a low of sorts post-dress rehearsal – possibly because my real work is done and I am effectively redundant, though hopefully still useful for moral support at the very least.
However, I don’t want this to be a low post… because we’re off to Stratford tomorrow afternoon. I am still absurdly excited when I think about it! The Dress Rehearsal was extremely promising, and I am really looking forward to seeing what my truly talented cast make of their show – definitely their show now! – on Saturday.
Think of us – and come to watch, if you can – The Dell 12 noon and 3pm – we’d love to see you there. (You can also support our crowdfunding until the 31st July – http://www.sponsume.com/project/elart-productions).
And we’re off…!
