Today is the last dress rehearsal for Greedy Greta Visits Christmas Town. I love this show. We had our first dress last night with lights, sound, costumes, and props. It was great. Things didn't go perfectly, but I didn't expect them to. That's the whole purpose of rehearsal. Figure out the problems and fix them before opening night.
I'm very excited to have people see this show. I put it on once before with my middle school students, and it was really good. Now, we have a bigger cast, a budget, and appropriately aged actors for every part. I'm really grateful for my cast. They're all talented and hard working, and hopefully they are enjoying the show as much as I am. They're going to be amazing.
My tech people are amazing, too. It looks and sounds fantastic. I couldn't ask for a better team. They've all worked really hard, and it is so nice to be able to delegate tasks and trust that everyone is going to get it done. Makes my job a lot less stressful.
This show makes me happy. I hope it makes the audience happy, too.
