The Crunch is ON!
With just under two weeks to go until we open with Pride and Prejudice, the crunch at RTC is definitely on. Everyone and everything is getting busier and busier by the moment.
Costuming is probably the most intense thing going on behind the scenes – but they’re doing such beautiful things, that I’d really like to bring you back to see what’s happening there. Apart from the loan of some Redcoat jackets from Fort Malden Historical Site, everything else is being made for our crew. So look and see what’s up there! Most of it is happening off-site, but a lot of it has been showing up at rehearsal lately, so I have the opportunity to show it off!
The costuming team, hard at work – with Katina and Sabin photobombing!
Meaghan decides that she’s willing to learn a bit about sewing – Nicole is helping her!

A quick informal fitting for Allyson – just checking on her hem.

In the kitchen, with the maids, right, Zoe?
Meanwhile, it’s rehearse, rehearse, rehearse!
Yes, we CAN get most of the Seniors into the family room at “RTC HQ,” but it’s definitely a squish. Still, we have small rehearsals going on some evenings, though all we can manage there is work on line-delivery. And YES, PHONES AWAY WOULD BE MORE EFFECTIVE!!!

Although Serena is almost unfailingly cheerful, her character, Kitty, seems to spend a fair amount of time weeping.
The Directorial team, making notes, suggestions, corrections, feeding lines, and generally monitoring the pulse of the play!
Always time for a friendly chat, though!
