Another fascinating day with The Three Belles, Joe Bishop and Will Keel-Stocker today. Full rehearsal this time, with props and full stage layout. The next time we work this, it will be at The New Theatre Royal in rehearsals on Saturday.
Here are some shots I snapped today:
It has been quite an experience. I’ve never written like this before – in a pragmatic and collaborative way, and it opens up whole new possibilities. Fascinating stuff.
How hard everyone has worked! From Chloe, the sound and lights woman closely annotating the script, through the Belles learning lines, working the staging, perfecting their characters and applying themselves to selling tickets – through Joe Bishop working up his character, and how he has managed to arrange a surprise guest appearance, to Will Keel-Stocker making the music happen, arranging the scores and in between times learning his lines, too. I suppose I have worked on it, too, but this has been such a positive experience it hasn’t felt like work.
Latest news is the Dress Circle is sold out, the stalls are nearly full and the theatre has now opened the Upper Circle.
You can get your tickets for Sing Sing Sing from the New Theatre Royal, here. The show will be on Saturday 2nd February, at 7.30 pm.
