Everybody Dies: First Rehearsal

Had a first rehearsal on Wednesday for a horror musical called Everybody Dies.  I haven’t heard the music yet, but the way its being described sounds good.

The character I’ll be playing, I don’t have a handle on.  Not yet, anyway.  But then, I only saw the script for the first time on Tuesday night.  I’m getting some ideas about who he is, but I need to read the script a bunch more times before I really start to get a sense of characterization.  Hearing the songs the character sings would also help, I think (since the songs are sung because of heightened emotion, I need to hear how he sounds when he feels that heightened emotion).

I think its going to be a fun musical to work on.  And I do have time to make the discoveries I need to make about the character.  I’ll keep you updated.
