One day more…
Rehearsals Day 57 – Ain’t no mountain high enough…
Well – we’re nearly there!! Tomorrow is the last day in the UK for the Azura cast for some time, as we fly out to Monfalcone Shipyard in the morning of Thursday 18th March, and won’t be back until the beginning of April. We finished up our London rehearsals on Saturday with a bit of […]
Rehearsals Day 29 – When will I see you again?
Phew what a long day! Good, but tough… there’s a touch of the “lurgy” floating around, so all the numbers are interspersed with the odd cough and splutter! Hey ho… get it all out of the way now 🙂 It’s hard to believe that we are in our final week of rehearsals in London (it’s […]
Rehearsals Day 19 – Where is it all going…
How did that happen?? Day 20 to Day 29? I can assure you it isn’t because we HAVEN’T been rehearsing – far from it! Let me do a quick recap – Day 20 was our “show off” for ‘Destination Dance’ with a wee bit of ‘Hitsville USA’ thrown in for good measure.(Richard explaining some moves […]
Rehearsals Day 15 – Ease on down the road
The time, that is. I can’t believe that we’re already into week 4 of rehearsals…. how with THAT happen? My slightly ‘sporadic’ posting during last week was down to nothing more than tiredness and lethargy on my part. It was a hectic week with lots going on, and it clearly took it’s toll on my […]
Rehearsals Day 13 – A little bit of Africa
Ouch… everything is aching now. I’m sure in some way it’s good for me… but I’m yet to be convinced by that!! I think perhaps after a hot bath I may feel differently 🙂 It’s been a day of cleaning and running “Destination Dance” today, with a little “Hitsville USA” thrown in. We’ve set the […]
Rehearsals Day 12 – Piling it on…
OK. So it is still a bit chilly – hardly some sub-Saharan savannah; nor is it really anywhere near the equator – more like Kennington, but we have been trying to bring a little bit of Africa to rehearsals today. We’re working on the next number in ‘Destination Dance‘, and for much of the day […]
Rehearsals Day 9 – Will drive you Maaaaaaad!
Yes – I know there was no “Day 11”, but you’ll have to get used to that. I was far too tired to write anything on Friday night!! Today was the last day of week 2, and we are getting towards the end of “Destination Dance” – just a couple of numbers to get through […]
Rehearsals Day 8 – Scrunchy
Today has been an odd one, it has to be said. More snow traumas for everyone trying to get into rehearsals for a start. It’s tad boring now! And it really makes you yearn to be sailing away on the Azura somewhere warm…. ahhhhh. Also, our Ashley has moved onto a different ship (no, not […]
Rehearsals Day 7 – A new week – a new show!
That’s a reference to our harmonies – and nothing to do with our costumes (I hope…). We spent the bulk of today revising the work we’d started with Leigh yesterday on ‘Destination Dance’, and on our close-harmony ‘ Nightingale’ – which is going to be awesome (even if I do say so myself!). Dominic is […]
So that’s it – we’ve moved on! Hitsville USA is in the “ongoing” pile, and our next show – Destination Dance is at the top of the agenda. (Don’t believe what hear that where the Singer’s dancing is concerned it has been nicknamed ‘dance disaster’ – that’s a cruel rumour!) (Valerie doing what she does […]
