Finally, A Show

18 May

The Read ThroughMaybe the best meeting is the second meeting. At the first meeting we have to go over the rules, fill out forms, answer questions and get acquainted with our new cast mates.

For those of us who have done this before, we know that this is the beginning of a two month journey and some of us find a bit of comfort knowing that the last several months of struggle to get this point are finally over. But the real comfort comes when we finally sit down on a sunny Tuesday evening with the sun pouring in the windows and, in a large circle, the first actor says the first line.

We have officially begun.

The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe isn’t a musical so there isn’t a vocal director or a pit band which seems like it should simplify things, but it doesn’t necessarily. There is still a lot to think about–costume and make-up, lighting an imaginary world, creating props and special effects, building and painting a set and choreographing a battle scene. But that’s a few weeks away.

Right now we are happy the actors, in a large circle, are reading their lines. We’re happy they’ve signed on for the fun and challenges that lie ahead. We are finally in May and the business of theatre has turned back into the art of theatre.
