I know, I know. What a horrible shot. The lighting is not the best backstage and my phone takes horrible pictures but that’s The Boy practicing with his Lumiere hands/torches. Not in full costume yet, but the show is coming along and hopefully between now and the actual shows The Boy will grow some muscles because those torches are heavy. Wait, is it Wednesday already? Yes, I do believe it is and tonight is the first full dress rehearsal for Beauty and the Beast.
The costumes, the sets, the talent… it’s all amazing. I am having a hard time getting a shot of The Girl as she enters from stage left this time around and I am usually on stage right, but I will try to snap of photo of her tomorrow during her dress rehearsal.
I am exhausted! These late nights and then having to get up so early to come to work is a total burn-out. It’s very tiring for the performers as well but they are young! They typically spring back and since school is out for this show, they can sleep-in for the most part.
We have a full run-thru tonight. Another one tomorrow and then the shows begin Friday morning with the summer field trip performance. I get to see the show (for real) Saturday afternoon. Come Sunday night I will be a useless noodle!
Reading? I haven’t done much since my time is not my own right now but I am deep into Breakfast of Champions and let me tell you, it’s a little bit offensive. I don’t think I have ever read Vonnegut before but he’s a little different. That’s all I’ll say for now. Have you read any of his books?
