Now is that time in the rehearsal process when we get down to the minutiae. The refining of the bits. The polishing and the specificity. I'm so grateful to have the time to do such things with the music. The cast has been nothing but spectacular. From my end, as the music director, I consider this to be one of the most fulfilling projects I've worked on to date. I've been blessed with a dozen people who have taken this music and make it their own. The most gratifying moments have been in the green room, after working songs. Occasionally I will hear a cast member humming the tune to themselves. It makes me smile every time it happens. My grandfather would be so proud.
Here we are, another month into the rehearsal process. I think we're all in agreement that this show is coming together very quickly. Our ensemble has taken to new dances, new music, and new fight choreography with diligence and passion. The skeleton of the show has been established and now its on to the fleshy bits! There's something magical about a room full of people, equally impassioned, working towards the same goal. We are on our way, and I hope you get a chance to come see what we've been chasing.
The Forks and Hope crew are hard at work on their next production, "Robin Hood and Maid Marian". We'll be settling into the warm and inviting halls of Hugen once again, and workshops have just concluded. This is the most ambitious project that F&H has tackled to date. With a new director at the helm (Matt Pierce) we are ready to sing, to dance, to fight! We hit the ground running this Wednesday, and we'll see you at opening!
