Dolly – 1st Weekend

I call this: summer stock — Posted by KP @ 6:56 pm

We’re into our first weekend of Dolly rehearsals, and things are going really well. I have had hardly any time at all to see the ensemble, but they seem to be moving quickly. We’re all together this afternoon, so I can begin learning the full-company musical numbers.

Rehearsal with the principals has been great. They are all very talented, but most of all have great chemistry together. We are still deep in the stage of blocking and learning lines, but I’m very anxious to see just how good the show gets once everybody is secure in what they’re doing.

Tomorrow we’re going to do a workthrough of Act I. Should be exciting!
