Yup, tonight's the night. We spent yesterday in technical rehearsals - about 7 hours. But James, the production manager, did a fantastic job of putting everything into place, so this afternoon's dress rehearsal should go smoothly.
The house is almost completely sold out - only 8 seats were remaining yesterday! That's a good feeling.
I also spent my last hours working with the kids yesterday. They loved playing theatre games with me, specifically The Magic Wind and Postcards. We also made a musical Fruit Salad this week. Let me see if I can post the video trailer created from this week's workshops:
Hard to believe my work is almost done here. It has been almost a year of preparation for 7 days of music, art, travel, a whole new country! Thanks to all of you for your support. You have helped me keep going on this project when I thought I should give it up. And especially, thank you to Jiu Jian for being so curious 11 months ago.
I'll see if I can get Nick to take some photos or video during this afternoon's dress rehearsal. We'll post tomorrow and then I will take my well-deserved technology break.
