What we did

After our morning meeting we did some Zumba before getting right into scene work. The clowns took the stage and walked through all of their scenes. Meanwhile, the Neapolitans did some character work elsewhere. Next, we did 2.1 along with some other Neapolitan scenes. Finally, the Company worked 1.2.

Our afternoon block of rehearsal started with walking through 5.1 and the epilogue. The rest of the time was spent on a music rehearsal!

Production Insights 

Today the Company spent a large portion of the afternoon working on music and OH MY GOODNESS I’m so excited for people to hear them! They have worked so hard on this set and it has clearly paid off. I feel so hopeful listening to them. Also, it all fits seamlessly with the show! Anyone, come see this brilliant Company on Sunday at 11am (earlier for pre-show).
