PERFORMANCES 7pm Friday, November 30, Saturday, December 1, and 2pm Sunday, December 2.
Sunday will have a full day rehearsal. Ren & Charlie will be there at 9am, and will meet with the crew between 10 and 11am or so. Cast are expected to arrive sharply at 1pm.
This will begin the first set of complete run-thru of the play. They will run the play in its entirety and break after they complete this (likely around 5pm or so).
Rehearsals on Sunday will be from 1pm until 10pm. The entire cast, director, assistant director, and stage manager are required to be there. Lighting and sound will be requested to be there for the evening hours (6 - 10 PM).
The afternoon focus will be on the actors pieces of the play. It will be the first run-thru from top to bottom. Cues, particularly line cues, and movement, will be important. At this point, every actor should have their lines memorized.
Evening focus will include the technical component and will be working with sound and liighting cues in their rudimentary draft stages. Costume design may pull actors for measurements or to try on pieces during the times they are not working on stage.

Ren & Charlie will meet with Technical crew in the morning. It will be their first day to tour the space at the community centre. The focus of the conversation will be on how they will set up the stage, the seating, and how they will make the set design plans work within the space.
He'll be tasking Claire and Jamie with any additional work on the prop list and expect any of the items they haven't already had to have in place for rehearsal to start being put into order this week.
Additionally, Ren will spend some time with Tandy looking at lighting design since she's not done actual design before. He'll likely show her how to start working with the lights, so that they're pointed and focused in the right direction, etc.
This is your place to do mini logs with cast and crew, ask Ren questions about the production, state how the character is approaching the creative process in regards to their part in the production, or whatever. Rehearsals are mostly in the evenings during the week, so if you want a log on a specific day this week, or next, just start a header, stick the date in there, and go for it. <3
