It’s quiet in the green room. Most of the cast is in places and the music is about to start. Evan, Emme, and I and have a bit of time before our scenes.
Tonight is our fifth show. We opened on Friday, did two shows on Saturday, and another on Sunday. We’ve had a few days off and now we’re back at it with ten shows to go over the next two weekends.
I’m really enjoying it. All of our hard work has paid off and we’ve got an excellent show. I still feel some nerves. It’s been important to keep practicing, keeping the lines and lyrics top of mind. I’m excited, though, and am looking to experimenting with subtle improvements to my characters over the next shows.
It’s been a lot of work. It’s been worth it, though, and now we get to enjoy the payoff of all that work. I’m almost up now. It’s showtime!
