God, I love theatre. We went back into rehearsals for Antigone last week and I'm already having a blast. We're starting blocking rehearsals this week and will finish by Wednesday and I plan to be offbook by then too. The cast is so awesome and the concept is pretty neat, so I can't wait to really work on it. Yesterday we took a promo shot of Antigone to put up on all the posters and I felt sorry for Jenna. She was in a red slinky toga in forty degree weather, but hey, we all suffer for out art, right?

The one thing that I'm really nervous about is the preshow music. We're playing our own out of a "Newgrass" band that we've formed called Swamp Donkey and I'm singing solo on one of the songs. And I'm terrified. We have five more Swamp Donkey rehearsals between now and opening, so I bet you can guess what I'll be doing!

Well, that and moving. Bryan and I almost have our house ready to move over here in the next couple of weeks. We've both painted our rooms, bathrooms, and are working on the hallway, living room and dining room this week. It's not perfectly set up yet, but that's easily taken care of while we're living there. I think I'm mostly excited because I've never had a bed bigger than a twin bed and now I will! I'll probably try to go out there sometime today before rehearsal and try to get some things organized in the WTP props/costume room that we have over there. Mainly because as much as I love and adore props, Bryan and I will probably need the dining room at some point.

And because I haven't announced it here, yay! I'm now officially the Producing Director of WTP. Yeah, I'm still pumped. It's going to be a lot of work, but I can't wait. Theatre's definitely a craft that takes work. Otherwise, why do it? And we have our summer tour show packets out and three places have already contacted us about wanting it! Yes!

Now back to Ismene- I mean, Antigone! :D

I'm happy that things seem to be going well for you! I really need to double check my schedule and see if I might be able to make it to see this show. I am determined to see one of your shows eventually!!! You do SUCH a good job.

I'm also glad it sounds like you've got some good things going for a house. Very excited for you!

It's February 19-22! :D

Yeah, I'm excited. Sucks waiting for paycheck to paycheck to keep fixing it up though, but my Gran would have wanted someone living in it.

Haha. They are nowhere as neat as they were. Between pulling stuff for Curate and Antigone and other stuff it looks like a tornado hit that room. :D
