The first day of this project was the tech day for Monday’s one acts. That included the one that Emma and I wrote. The tech started off not too stressful. Everyone was listening and singing along to “Heathers” so it was a fun distraction. It felt like it was just downhill from there.
One of our actors did not follow our directions to stay through, and only showed up last second for our tech. That was quite stressful. As was trying to have set crew understand where we wanted the set pieces to be, and hoping that they would end up there every time. Alexis, our lead, lost her voice and couldn’t perform that day so CharLee had to fill in for her, fully prepared to have to fill in for the actual show.
Things finally came together, and it was awesome working alongside Emma. The other one acts were amazing as well.
