Last night was the first dress rehearsal, complete with makeup. Despite a few teething problems, it all went well.
Most of the costumes fitted, especially those that were supplied by the cast for themselves, and the set looks grand.
Naturally there were a few mistakes: lines forgotten (in one case two whole pages), cues missed, props falling over, the sound being too loud and several more.
But the cast kept their nerves, made up for each others mistakes and overcame the fear of being in full regalia.
Tonight we have another dress rehearsal at which all of the above faults will be corrected...just in time for us to create new ones.
BRING IT ON!
