Well it’s here at last. The final week before performance. Pray for me. Pray that I don’t let my cast members or director down and that I remember my lines. Pray that I quit revising the script. I don’t know if it’s because I’m old and choose to use my own words, or if it’s because I’ve written so many of my own plays that I’m editing as I go.
I have not been on this side of the stage for almost ten years and I must say it’s been an eye opener. I choose to do this to myself every now and then so that I can empathize with my students. I often forget the angst and actor goes through, during this entire process.
So my posts will be shorter and pertaining to flubs of tech week and the bombs I tend to drop. Bear with me. I’ll be back at full force in a couple weeks.
