It’s been a BUSY week. The pressure was ON and with less than 2 weeks until opening night….
But the students are all rising to all the challenges and pulling out all the stops to get this production up and ready!
The story line is being honed, the cabaret acts have been decided and being rehearsed throughout the week with major developments for production and make up, music is being written and rehearsed faster than you can imagine and marketing have been busy promoting this show like crazy! Check out Dante Cabaret Facebook and Instagram to follow live updates…
We also held an advanced Acro session to really push the students who wanted to develop that skill. We saw some amazing results in only a few hours and with boosted confidence the students began to combine tricks to start making a routine – The Boneyard Tumblers.
We also attempted a 4 part harmony version of ‘Allegri’ with the 30 performers, and with only an hour or so for the separate parts to practice, the first time we pulled all 4 sections together sounded quite spectacular and is now indeed being used in the show!
Friday saw a full run through of the show, performed to Glenn Noble (The Fabularium’s Artistic Director). This run through was indeed ‘wet paint’; with things not fully formed yet, but the students committed to it and went for it with positive results. So now week 4 can commence, knowing everything that needs to be worked upon….and my goodness there is a lot to do, from rehearsals of acts to practising make up, to set building with our very own Jonny Dixon, to writing more music and generally building up the hype!
From being scared to laughing out loud…from the grotesque to the beautiful, it is destined to be a night to remember!
