Post 15

I think it's the 16th post. Oh well. Anyways, I had to tell you guys a funny story about something that happened at rehersal yesterday. It cracks me up everytime I think of it.

OK, so we put up masking around the set. Masking is basically black cloth on wood to hide backstage. Sort of like a stiff curtain. So, during one scene in the 2nd opera, the little pip-squeak of a girl (imagine Kristin Chenoweth - tiny girl, huge voice) hits this incredibly high note. A high C, for those who care- which is very high. As she sings, she is supposed to run offstage, and she's always ran to the right. So earlier in the day, the stage manager told her they put up masking so she needs to run to the left. Well, as she was running off, she ran to the right and ran smack dab into the masking like a brick wall and fell over backwards. Imagine a tiny opera singer running into a brick wall singing a high note. Hilarious. I'm still laughing. But you probably needed to be there...

Off to work! Bye.
