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 35 – How lucky can one boy be?
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 29 – When will I see you again?
We ploughed headlong into our new show yesterday – so another gear change! (Scott, George, Daniel & Emma blow off some steam on the Table Football before the show-off) We finished off some cleaning on ‘Blame It On The Boogie’ before showing it off to the assembled masses. It’s quite a fast-paced show, so I […]
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 10 – Everything’s upside down
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 7 – A new week – a new show!
Mainly Sara, Scott & Neil as it happens! I feared for a short time that it was going to be me – but managed to persuade Rob that my talents would be much better employed dangling poor Scott by his ankles, head-first over the floor. Scott and Neil were being dangled (Daniel was being Neil’s […]
Rehearsals Day 6 – It’s like a Heatwave…
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 […]
OK – so it’s NOT like a heatwave, it’s still blinking freezing – but anyhow! Final day of the first week, so we’ve been adding on the choreography for a few numbers in Hitsville USA and smartening up the bits we’ve already learned. (Here’s Charles and Sara ‘bumping’ their way through “Heatwave”) Charles has been […]
