Lots of cleaning up of scenes at Tuesday night's rehearsals… taking care of details… adjusting blocking… finding our way to spots for curtain calls …tangoing (tangoing? dancing the tango!)… pretty basic stuff done at a steady pace. And specifically for me, learning to hit someone with a cane without causing undue pain! Need to work at that.
In other areas work went on as well. Upstairs, work was progressing on the set, and the costume shop which is directly next to the rehearsal hall was busy! Rey Dobeck, our guest designer, who has worked at the Milwaukee Rep for many years, was having actors try on costume pieces, checking for needed alterations, and making notes about what still needs to be done, while Pat Boeck and Paula Kroening were busily sewing and hemming. Pat, who has been our resident volunteer costume person for a number of years, is stepping back from being the leader but continues to help out. Paula has come on board over the past few years and has become a regular. Take a peek at this busy threesome! Couldn't get them to say much though, especially Pat, maybe because she had a mouthful of pins!
