Folks, good work today...*after* you focused. Please remember we have only six rehearsals total before moving into Sirote. With NATS and the choir trip to Georgia, this will come sooner than you think. Review blocking, stage combat, and choreography before coming to rehearsals: we cannot continue spending the first 20 minutes reviewing what you should already know. Starting Sunday, work off book as much as you can. You may call for lines as often as you wish without penalty next week: just stay in character and keep things moving.
If I have asked you to bring a prop, please do so ASAP or let me know if you need help getting it to Hulsey. We need to work with everything possible. Also, please be on time to every rehearsal. No more asking if you can change into rehearsal clothes, etc. when the rehearsal has already started. Do that on your own time, and be ready to start at the appointed hour.
These are all friendly reminders...but also a warning that starting next week, I'm turning up the heat! The pressure will be on. Enjoy NATS and Georgia, and get ready for the REAL work.
