Oh, man guys. I am le tired. The latest in the bizarre and unfortunate tale that has been this rehearsal process is that there was a “scheduling mishap” at the theatre last night. Stowe Theatre Guild’s theatre is on the top floor of the town municipal building, and somehow, an important town meeting was scheduled for last night. Because it’s the town municipal building, town business takes precedence, and we were told that we wouldn’t be able to start our dress rehearsal until they were finished. Which didn’t end up being until almost an hour and a half after we were supposed to start. I wasn’t in bed until midnight and I was up at 6 for work today. Yuck.
I’m sure with the excitement of actually having an audience, things will improve, but right now I’m so exhausted and frustrated it’s hard to feel excited. I’m not even sure I feel ready for an audience. I’m just huddled at my desk, alternating coffee and tea, and trying to get through my work day.
All I can say is, I’m so looking forward to the fall. I will NOT be auditioning for any shows, and I may not even volunteer for the makeup crew like I usually do. I just need to relax, hang out with Ben, and focus on house hunting.
