Theatre Adrenalin is Rising... (Early Wednesday before bed) [Nov. 26th, 2003|05:07 am]

Was up till about 10am yesterday morning and slept thru till 4pm...

Got up at 4 and rushed straight to theatre for panto rehearsals...was due there by 5 and it takes me about 45 mins to walk...since my father was unavailable for emergency liftage I got there out of breath and ashen-faced at about 5:15...

Learnt the finale song...which is a good one...I shall probably be singing all the others from the wings tho since I'm not actually in the scenes with other songs while they're happening, but they could do with the vocal backup...and then went to rehearse the opening scene with the littleys, and the attendants...

Then at 7:30, went into a full run through...

Such fun to be had!!

We tried using my mobile for the first scene...but it will have to be FX as it took a while to go through and was too quiet...all went fairly well until Azo and I had to do the Inuit story with the giant inflatable killer whale prop...

This was the first time we'd clapped eyes on the thing...it's about 6ft long...and very wide...and there's me and Azo astride it...

Azo is the Nurse/Dame...in a huge hoop skirt...Me, as the male counterpart (Grand Vizier, darling!)...I'm straddled behind him, hands on his fake breasts...doing this *wave/swimming* motion with him on it...tantamount to buggery...the audience will be in fits...

As were we...oh god it was funny...it's kinda hard to maneuvre as it is SO wide...and difficult for me as the tail pushes against the backs of my ankles, so I'm in danger of falling off the back if I don't cling to Azo's huge stuffed bra for safety...and the lines...Oh the lines...

"Hold on!"

"To what?"

"To whatever comes to hand...ooh cheeky!"

"This is no time for cheap jokes, we're going to DIE!!"

..."We're going faster, and deeper..."

etc etc...


Got to the end of act 1 again, and had to rush off to work, so Mal took over from there...just as well as I'm not so hot on the cues on Act 2...

Work was ok...just the usual typing crap, listening to Jui-ehh!! moaning about her bf all the time and not listening to me at all, and getting irritable as usual...I don't know why I bother...she never listens to me when I have things I want to discuss, and I ALWAYS have to sit and listen to her as she demands it!


Got out of work at 5am...very low mail volume, huzzah...to find it pissing down with rain...coming down in torrents and the roads have turned to rivers.

I LOVE this city:(

(she lied)

So here I am.

Pilfered a cigarette from Terri, which I am attempting to make 3 rollups out of, flat broke, and only powdered milk in the cupboard. No food but pasta and some old tins of soup...

Ok...is this WRONG of me?? A workmate gave me a tin of sweetcorn...which I am adding to pasta with one of the tins of soup I have lurking in the cupboard...only I'm so hungry I just ate half of the sweetcorn with a spoon before the pasta is even ready...


Thank god I get paid on Friday...I'm off to Sainsburys to stock up!!!

Anyway, I have a Weird Cabaret rehearsal tonight...which will be intense as hell, since we are PERFORMING on Sunday...

Don't know if I'm rehearsing Thursday...probably...and a vocal rehearsal Friday...

Saturday 10-6pm/whenever rehearsals for panto/cabaret...Sunday 10am call for Cabaret...tech/dress/run through and the doors open at 6pm...so I won't get home till about midnight/1am monday morning...

Thankfully I have monday night off work...so I'll go for a drink after panto rehearsals...

Things are looming...show this sunday...fine...but Panto opens in TWO WEEKS!!!!!!!!


To be perfectly honest...I'm permanently knackered right now...but damned excited about it all...

And the Weird Cabaret show will be repeated on the 1st Feb for those who don't get to see it this time...so I won't be on a low after the panto is over, as I'll have more theatre work to be getting on with...huzzah!!!

Ok...Time for a drink...

(and make myself a cigarette!)


BTW: If you're wondering why I've put the days in the titles for the last week...it's because I have taken to writing my journal a day in arrears...this helps me keep track of the DAY I posted it...without having to remember what DATE it is...as I'm having a prob with that at the moment...


I WANT ONE NOW!!!!!!!!!!

Nowt wrong with eating your sweetcorn from the tin before the rest of your food is ready - I do it all the time.
Glad to hear you are repeating the Weird Caberet in Feb - I think it sounds fascinating and would love to come see it - maybe I'll get the chance then :-)
