Anne’s Second Weekend

The first show after the first weekend, if there is a break, is always the hardest. The first opening weekend is always preceded by a weeks worth of rehearsals. Then you make take a break of a few days (in our case: 5 days) then do another show. That 5 days is a long break. You tend to forget lines unless you are diligent and study during the break. I was very pleased I did not forget any thing on that Saturday.

This weekend went very well. We had a large crowd of Girl Scouts on Sunday that made up most of the audience. About 90 people total. Having a large, responsive audience makes a huge difference in the performance level of the cast. At one point, I am on stage with ANNE and we are discussing daydreams, that it felt great being on stage. And I was thinking how much I love acting.
