Opening Night Jitters

Well, here we are. Five weeks into the rehearsal process, and it’s showtime! The creative team is eager to see what was once merely an idea put into action before a live audience. The cast is looking forward to putting the play on the boards. The crew is prepared for any eventuality (including the light board and the MIDI player to stop talking to each other). Even Toby, the dog playing the part of Crab, is ready. Last night was the time to give the edges of the stage a final fresh coat of flat black paint. Today the platforms and additional seating with be added to the fourth side of the stage (the play is performed in the round), and last-minute props and costumes pieces will be finished. (Why is Thurio wearing dark socks? Where is Panthino’s belt? and so on.)

We have a special preview performance of Two Gentlemen of Verona Friday night for former cast and crew members and their guests and then it’s our official opening night on Saturday. Do you have your tickets yet? Call the box office or get them online today!
