More...of the...same.Not much has been happening around here, minus the perpetual business of life.
But, I have selected a finalist for production as RCW Three-Act this fall. A musical melodrama. Having read the script and perusing the lyrics (I haven't yet ordered a perusal copy of the piano score), it meets my basic requirements:
- Musical, but not music on each page (e.g. some roles don't require singing),
- Involves many people (19 individual roles, plus 'chorus' and such)
Unless the score doesn't work out for some reason, this will most likely be the production I choose to present.
The main task at hand right now is to come up with a generic rehearsal plan and choose show dates. This will give me a tentative 'start date' for rehearsals...as well as requirements for audition times/dates. The Community Education brochure will be going out around September 1, so my personal inkling is to start somewhere around October 1...giving us somewhere in the vicinity of six weekd rehearsals prior to a mid-late November (before Thanksgiving) production date.
Ah well...it could be worse, I guess.
