Rehearsals Day 35 – How lucky can one boy be?
Rehearsals Day 30 – Saturday morning feeling
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 29 – When will I see you again?
I managed to arrive about an hour early for work this morning, so find myself sitting in Starbucks with Sara preparing for the day! There is a slight air of “end of the week” today – aching, tiredness, lack of ability to form proper sentences… but it’s all good. Day off tomorrow for a battery […]
Rehearsals Day 10 – Everything’s upside down
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 8 – Scrunchy
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…
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 […]
Rehearsals Day 5 – Reach out for Meeeeeee!!
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 […]
Rehearsals Day 4 – Signed, Sealed, Delivered
Us boys got done with Stevie’s section this morning (that’s Stevie Wonder to you and me), in a suitably macho way… well, as macho as we could muster on a Friday morning 🙂 and then we all hunkered down upstairs with Leigh (our MD) to hammer out some more harmonies. (Some serious (!) work around […]
Rehearsals Day 2 – Dancing up a storm
With More Snow. More late trains. More Dancing. More Singing. Apart from the first two, what more could you want from a day! With the dancers away on their “pre-production” mission (- don’t ask me about it, because if I told you I’d have to kill you! -) we had Alford House to ourselves today, […]
I must admit to being a little but “achy” this evening, following a good solid day of dancing. OK – maybe even more than a little bit, but it’s a good ‘ache’. Clearly my “youthful” outlook on life is not one shared by my ageing body! But it’s all good exercise, so I can’t complain. […]
