|05:01 pm - we's busy on the radio|
Just in case you see me running around hollering like a madman who's crazy, this is what my schedule is going to look like for the following week:
Sat 10/23 (I made this!) - Loading set pieces and equipment into cars to be held overnight, until...
Sun 10/24 - Load-in at the Somerville, technical setup fun, avoiding turning the entire theater into an AM receiver.
Mon 10/25 - Cue-to-cue rehearsal. Every light, sound, music cue needs to be tested. No matter how well you plan and how good your crew is (and ours is stellar), it usually turns into an All Night Funtime Jamboree. It's nobody's fault. It just happens. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst, bring a sleeping bag just in case.
Tue 10/26 - Full dress rehearsal of THE BIG BROADCAST OF 1946.
Wed 10/27 - Radio appearance on WMBR in the afternoon (not sure when; someone has those details but not me) plugging the show and chatting about all sortsa fun stuff. Dark night which means no rehearsal unless Tuesday tanks horribly.
Thu 10/28 - Radio appearance on WGBH's Emily Rooney show (we'll be on after 12:30), and then we open with our first 7:30 evening performance of THE BIG BROADCAST OF 1946. GET YOUR TICKETS NOW NOW NOW
Fri 10/29 - 7:30 pm evening performance.
Sat 10/30 - 7:30 pm evening performance.
Sun 10/31 - 2:00 pm matinee performance with Halloween costume contest smooshed somewhere in there, full strike, cast party.
Tue 11/02 - Wake up. Monday will have never happened.
Mon 11/08 - Get four teeth pulled. YAY!
What's your week(s) look like?
A lot like this, actually. Only I have an understudy sometimes.
Mine's a little different. I'll be juggling redheads instead of equipment on Saturday 10/23, and I think again the 24th. I also have a midterm to hand in next Monday and another one to take later that week. I'll also be juggling redheads and classes and the school newspaper. Did I mention juggling redheads? And my in-laws arrive 10/29 :P Yes, we're hoping to get them to the Sunday show - my parents are coming on Hallowe'en as well :P
