Today was our very first day of tech! We had a paper due in seminar at 2:30, which was also when our call for tech was. There were a fair number of us who stayed up into the wee hours working furiously on writing. I don’t know if I want to divulge how late I was up, but it was fairly late.
There are still a few things that props has to do, but luckily I have until opening night to get everything done. However I am shooting to get things done before the final dresses for each show so that all the props will have been used at least once. The angel book is coming along fantastically! It’s so close to finished it hurts. I had some people make some fabulous posters for a funeral procession that takes place in Perestroika. The other big thing I worked on today was figuring out the correct recipe to make fake, edible, washable blood. I literally worked on this from 2:30pm until I had to be on stage for my scene at 10:30pm. Everything worked out very well and there is even a video of me and Lyle (another Rep termite) making the blood.
I have to get into CFA a little early tomorrow morning to test flash paper in the hopes of using it in our cue to cue tomorrow. So I’m off to bed early tonight.
I cannot believe there is one week until opening…
