Moving Day

They call it Moving Day.  The day we were able to finally rehearse on the stage where we'll be performing.  We've been rehearsing at the community center, on a different stage, but it's "go time" now.  It's almost like re-doing the whole thing.  Blocking needs to be tweaked.  Props and sets don't fit like they should.  It even sounds different.  But oh, what a lovely place to be moved to.  The Dothan Opera House was built in 1915.  100 yrs old this year.

Only a small sampling of the costumes used in this production.

A view from the balcony.

 It's a small and intimate theater.  Smaller than the Capitol theater in SLC, but the three balconies give it the same feeling. Nervous anticipation, that's the only way I can describe how I feel today.  There are no pictures of Ben and his "gang" today because they were all too busy exploring all the nooks and crannies of this new place.  A few dress rehearsals to go and then it's the real thing.  We. Can't. Wait.
