Last Night was closing night for the Play Lion the Witch and The Wardrobe. The First act was going great then during a scene where the Beavers are having dinner with the four children Peter(played by Luke Stormogipson) started gasping for breath. At first I thought he was choking but he coughed and it seemed to help so we went on with the scene. As soon as we where off stage he runs out side and he can barley breath he was starting to turn blue. But our next scene was coming up( A fight scene between Fenris Ulf and Peter) So Peter runs on stage still gasping for air. He can barley say his lines and then he starts to fight Ulf. Peter can barley move and he does not do all that he is supposed to do, but it worked. He kills Ulf and then we leave the stage. Peter goes running to go outside and just falls down. He had fainted and so one of the cast members ran out to the audience to get her dad who is a doctor. Then its intermision and everyone is getting worried because he still hadn’t woken up. so the Director Tracey Vaughn comes backstage and goes over to Dan Taylor(Fenris Ulf) Starts taking off his makeup and costume and tells him”Your going to fill in for Peter.” So Dan gets into diffrent clothes and takes all his makeup off. Because it is not his part he had to take a script on stage(Which he hid behind his shield) And the play went on. All the girls where upset so they where going at half speed and everything was kinda blah. But in the end Peter came out on stage and bowed but was still in pain and was probably going to the doctor I am not sure if he was going last night or today. But all in all it was one heck of a closeing Night!
The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe has been going great. We have sold out almost all the shows so far. We have two more to go tonight and tommorrow. I also auditioned for Treasure Island and I am petty sure I have a part in that and pracitces start May 4th for that and the show date are June 15-25 and so I will be busy all the way up to going to the Shakespearian Festival and all that jazz. Well I am off to school. El Muchacho es mu interisante y gracioso!
So on Easter I slept in till about 9:30 then woke up and ate the breakfast(someone cooked I dont know who did) then played a card game with Tasha and Grandma Warren then got ready to go to the Playhouse for a play at 2:00. The show went good and we got a standing ovation or at least I think we did I could not see past the stage lights. Then after the cast had an Easter egg hunt and we talked for awhile it was fun. Grandma and Grandpa Warren had left to the airport around 2 so they did not get to see the show but they went to the first one and then one on saturday so I think they got the fill of it. We get a break for three days before we start again on thursday then go to sunday then we have a two day break then on Wednesday we are doing a show for Elementary kids. The Show starts at 12:00 and so I get to miss school for the day. Then we have three more shows after that. All nights so far have been sold out which is really awsome considering its 170+ seats. Grandma Larsen comes up in a few days and I cant wait to see her too. I like having people up because its not boring. Well I hope you all had a good Easter and Long Live the True King.(one of my lines)
Opening night of the Play went off with out a hitch! Everyone did extremely well and we all had lots of fun. It was sold out 170+ seats also tonight tommorrow and Sunday. Well I have to go and eat and get ready because I have to be there at 5:45 to get my costume and makeup on and the play starts at 7:30. I hope it goes good again.
Its the night before opening. We had our last Full Dress/Makeup rehearsal tonight and it turned out realy cool. Everything is coming together but of course not everything is finished with the set and the costumes. Which is suspected from a Coummunity Theatre. I am excited to start and not a bit nervouse. Grandma and Grandpa Warren are here at the house for the next week and they will be going to opening night. Then next week Grandma Larsen is coming up to see it. Due to the popularity of the play they extended the show four extra nights so in all its 13 shows. Its going to be a long next couple of weeks but it was worth it.
