Tonight, rehearsal started with working to revise the fight. We had a scene that we had shown at the fundraiser last month, and though there was a lot to that scene, putting it in front of an audience highlighted some flaws in the presentation. So, now we have to make some changes in order to improve the scene.
The lesson we learned from presenting a scene at the fundraiser really illustrates the kind of thing we hope to learn through our workshop in less than a week. By putting the work in front of an audience, we’ll learn what’s working and what’s not. Of course, it would also be nice to find some financial backers, but that’s less important than the feedback we’ll get.
This week is going to be really difficult. Working 9 to 5, and then heading right out to rehearsal. This will get me home around midnight each night. When it’s all over, I’ll be ready for the Christmas break.
I’m almost home now, so I’ll post this and collapse into sleep.
