We had a great time last weekend at our first three performances of Christmas Carol. The first two shows (Friday and Saturday night) seemed a bit slow and the audience didn't laugh at all the funny parts - in my opinion. By Sunday afternooon we really turned it on and the audience really responded.
I think we all fully recovered from last week which began with 8 (yes eight) hours of rehearsal on Sunday, November 28 and ran straight through the week with rehearsals every night from 6:00 to 9:30, then performances Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The kids slept 12 hours on Saturday and Sunday night. Even I "slept in" until 7:15 on Saturday - late for me.
Still three performances remaining - Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, December 10, 11, and 12. Visit Rosetown Playhouse for more information.
