It was a long day.  Christopher and I met Mr. Rich at 1 to review our scripts and make sure that we had all of the sounds effects covered.  We only have 4 rehearsals until the show.  Two weeks, but only 4 rehearsals.  The show is coming along wonderfully and Ms Judy is doing a great job directing.  The sound booth is up and it really makes the stage look great.  Especially the "on air" sign.  Rehearsal went until 6, so when you are running on little sleep that is a long time to try and stay focus.  I really need to get more sleep before the show, because being a Foley isn't difficult, but it does take a lot of concentration.  

Ms Judy and Ms Denise has come up with some very clever things.  Like Christopher carries this red carpeted step up to the mike to do his part in the Library commercial.  It is really cute.  And we do a song at the end that now has choreography and will look very cool.  Then the bows are pretty neat with how she has us make lines and then step forward and back and stuff, pretty cool.

Sleep, I need sleep.  Maybe tonight.  Tomorrow Christopher starts space camp, so that will be an early morning.  And then tomorrow the interview for the article in the paper, hopefully that will give us some free advertising for the play.  I wanted Mary to be in the article with me, but he wants to do it on one person at a time.

Here are some pictures from rehearsal.  enjoy:

 Yes, those are red cowboots I am wearing with a 1940s handmade dress.  They make great walking noise sounds

 Chuck, Ms Moon's brother and our announcer for the show.  He is pretty amazing, just like his sister
and Mandy's head

 Mr. Rich with the mini door.  See the cabbage?  That is what we use to make fighting sounds, and it looks funny as the cabbages fly apart throwing cole slaw all over the stage
