what we did

Today was all about transitions! Specifically, transitions between scenes, moving set pieces, and fun moments of blocking that can be found in transitional moments. We blocked all major transitions today. Then, choreography was finalized for our opening dance number, and campers continued to practice the show song with Joan. Here are some photos from today!

production insights

Today, I learned how small details can absolutely elevate a show to the next level. I was initially wondering if transition work would take up the whole rehearsal time, but I quickly learned that nailing these moments is essential. It means that throughout the show, the energy never drops. Otherwise mundane moments like scene changes become little gems of comedy. I’m so impressed by the campers’ willingness to jump in where needed and try new things. Oh, and the dance looks great!

Tomorrow is a busy day of rehearsal, and I’ll be back and blogging!
