I know you are sick of hearing about it, but now that we’ve got one weekend of performances under our belt, it feels like a REAL SHOW and we DID IT.
It wasn’t without its hiccups. We didn’t have lights until opening night. Microphones were a little iffy, including the fact that we sometimes heard bits of conversation from on stage / in the house. One of our main characters slipped on fake blood and sprained her ankle and had to do Sunday’s show on crutches.
You read that right. Fake blood. Lots of it. We’ve added mopping between scenes.
#COMMUNITYTHEATER am I right?
Attendance was small, but it’s a small space and it honestly felt perfectly cozy! Most of us play multiple roles throughout the show…It’s how it was written. And honestly, it makes it pretty funny since everyone plays both men and women. You get quite an eclectic cast of characters that way. I play Ruthie/Ned/Young Meredith.
I’m really looking forward to our next performances, since I think we are all having a little more fun with it now. WE FINALLY KNOW OUR LINES so it’s on us now to just have a great time. If you’re in Columbus, come out and see us! Details are here: http://www.emeraldcityplayers.com/
