A Well-Oiled Machine

Alex and Sarah chat during a rehearsal break.

It seems like it was only yesterday when we had our first reading of the script with the assembled cast . . . and now here we are a couple of months later, a well-oiled machine in my opinion. Our opening weekend was a strong indicator of this as smiles and laughter filled the space on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.

Even our small audience on the preview night was receptive to our hard work. Everything sort of came together magically the last week of rehearsals and the result is an awesome show put on by a fun group of people. The sound and lighting have been on point, and Michael Guillory’s  set design has enhanced everybody’s work and has made me step up in my role (onstage and off). Even the scene changes (which seemed ridiculous at many points in the final week before opening) now feel like a breeze.

Kitty, Mrs. Bennet, and Mr. Wickham share a laugh.

I know that the show is only going to get better from here and that new discoveries will be made every night we take the stage.
