Rehearsals Day 8 – Scrunchy
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!).

(Our rehearsal space – Alford […]
