It is a great feeling when everyone remembers their lines….
Yesterday, the cast of “The Bench“ had one of our best rehearsals so far! It was the moment where we all hopefully realized that “wow, we can do this” and the shows are going to be great….ok, so maybe it was just me. You see, I happen to have lots of lines in this play and normally it is an absolutely amazing thing to have a lot of lines, its just that a lot of lines also requires more time to actually memorize them.
So yesterday marked my first rehearsal, where I went through one entire run without calling “line” (meaning someone didn’t have to tell me what my line was). And this was a grand occasion as now obviously, I will do justice towards the greatly written play and to the wonderful audience that will come see us perform! And just so you know, we are working with a tight schedule, so do give us some credit on doing so well! On the other hand, if I do happen to forget a few lines, you can come see me try to make something interesting up…..just kidding….I think our Director Beth Morton will now kill me…..or maybe she will just wait until the last performance is over…….
I can’t wait for Opening Night and being able to showcase our cute and funny play, filled with moments of Rosa’s chatter (that will be me then), Dermot’s eye-rolls (that will be Niko) and Dave’s interesting moves (that will be David)…..so come join us on The Bench!
