Previews for Hate Mail have been going well. Audiences this weekend have been laughing a lot, and there’ve been quite a few “OOOooooh!” or “Uh-oh!!” outbursts from the audience during the show, which is a lot of fun to hear – it’s a very exciting thing to hear folks get pulled into a performance like that! The talkbacks have been very good – folks really enjoying the production and the unique style of the piece, as well as a handful of very useful observations for the actors and I to play with! A couple more rehearsals next week, and one more preview, and we open officially and hope to fill the seats! 🙂
A busy week – we’ve got a two-day workshop for our World Premiere of Voices From The Midwest: Maidens, Mothers and Crones, we’re participating in Joint Auditions with several other theatres, Opening Night of Hate Mail is Friday, the next-to-last meeting of our current Acting For Young People class is Monday night, we’re working to finalize our 2008/2009 Season, and we’ve got scene shop renovations and re-roofing projects that should be wrapping up this week. *Phew!*
Hope to see you at the theatre!
