Proof of existence

April 17, 2006 10:27 pm

Charlie Brown has temporarily taken over my life. We spent about four hours today working on the set. We were very fortunate in that we were able to get lots of stuff that the S.C. Children’s Theater was going to throw away, so all of that just needed scrubbing and painting. It’s looking much, much better. We’re especially pleased with Snoopy’s dog house, which was previously painted to look like boards – and it shows through rather nicely under a coat of red paint! So no need for a second coat after all, ha ha!

First dress rehearsal is tomorrow; we open on Thursday. Everybody do the no-rain dance! – we’re performing in the Amphitheatre!! (which as Jen has enlightened me, is not technically an amphitheatre because it is a half-circle, not a full circle, so basically common usage of the word is historically…wrong. Gotta love it.)

Speaking of whom…as of a week and two days ago, Jen and Cort are really, truly married. The short story is that despite a couple of unlucky incidents, the wedding was beautiful, the bride was gorgeous, and went off without a hitch. And it’s all still a bit weird…but since her school e-mail address has her new name now, I guess it really happened!

And then there’s this school thing…but we’ll think about that next week.

Any chance of posting pics of the costumes, sets, scenes, etc? I’m kinda curious.

I echo Crunch’s desire to see!

So, what’s it like performing outside in the hemitheater?

Does semitheater work?

Yeah, I’ll get pictures up eventually. 🙂

As for the hemi-/semitheatre, the accoustics are pretty nice. We’re just worried about weather…Friday and Saturday we have the auditorium reserved just in case, but it was already taken for Thursday…

Amphitheater = theater + theater (or, two theaters put together to form a circle). So, the “Furman Amphitheater” is nothing more amazing than an outdoor theater partly covered by a roof.

Katie is dead, long live the Katie?

She’s not dead, I saw her not 4 days ago.

She is, however, ignoring her rabid fans. 🙂
