We’re Off to See the Wizard!
It was a great opening night with 552 in attendance.
We only get access to Como on the day of the show. Up until then we rehearse at Roseville Area Middle School (RAMS) in the theater and/or cafeteria with the floor taped off to mark the entrances – so you never know how it will really work until you get there. There are always last-minute details to work out like entrances and exits and dance changes – moving folks off the stage and into the spacious aisles of Como. I was great!
Toto remains a bit of a wild-card, running through the audience, up and down the rows of benches and chairs, but it’s funny (and cute) enough to almost seem a planned part of the show.
