Hi guys :)
Sorry it took me so long to post about last weekend, this week has been CRAZY with my school choir and stuff. Anyway, visiting the cast last weekend was amazing! I got to RI around 4 and then met up with Anthony to go to their hotel. They were all so nice and really excited that I was there! A bunch of us went to Fire & Ice for dinner, and then I had another costume fitting with the wardrobe supervisor Eva in the theater, which was pretty cool! I tried on all of Claire's outfits (and actually all of them fit me perfectly!) I met a bunch of new people, and everyone was so nice, from the hair dresser and stage crew to the company manager and sound guys. I felt like I belonged there, which was an amazing feeling. After my costume fitting, I went out into the audience to see the show. This was actually a special moment in my Spring Awakening timeline, because it was the 10th time I was seeing the show! Well, they made my 10th time incredible. Every single one of them is disgustingly brilliant & talented; I literally started shaking during MWBM reprise thinking that I'm actually going to be up there in less than a month!(CRAZY, it's May 1st! where did April go??)
After the show, I met up with my mom who was sitting in the nosebleed section (I got a separate ticket so I could be closer haha) and Anthony took us on a backstage tour, which was incredible. He took us on the stage and showed me a bunch of little things that I should know, like where the quick change booth is for when I'm on as Wendla and some other cool things :) I literally never wanted to leave that stage.
It's surreal that I only have 15 actual days left in high school, and that I start rehearsing at the end of the month! I have senioritis multiplied by 50, if you can imagine that. On top of learning 4 sets of lines, a crapload of different voice parts, and a massive amount of blocking, I have a research paper and a lit circle book/journal due at the end of the month and a cat practical in Anatomy. So honestly I have MORE than enough to keep my mind busy for the next 31 days, but in reality, this is all I think about.
Until next time!
