sooo today was an interesting day. as with most of the tour process this time around, we had a lot to accomplish in a very short amount of time. we started off the early morning with an engine problem, causing us to arrive at our venue about two hours late; we still managed to pull off a great show for about 500 elementary schoolers (which is one of my favorite things to do), all of whom left the theater tapping.
our afternoon was relaxing, and we were on track for a great 7:30 show :) which it was, but not without it’s major hitches. at intermission we realized we had left a major prop back in nashville; reblock within a reblock but totally doable. next up was our military set…as yankee doodle started playing, so did our finale music…finale music won and poor old yankee doodle got cut and by some miracle we all had changed a flight speed and were able to finish the show with no more issues! definitely felt that adrenaline pumping for the whole finale, and ended up having one of our best audiences to date :)
in closing, without challenges, life wouldn’t be much of an adventure.
