Time to put this production together!
For our first rehearsal, we got the whole cast and crew together to meet each other and read through the whole show, and begin learning the complex music for the opening number. From now until the show opens, the cast will have 3-4 hour rehearsals 5-6 days a week to learn music, block various scenes, and run through the show.
When the cast finished their rehearsal, the production team (proteam) stormed the theater to have their first meeting. The proteam includes students in charge of building the set, creating the costumes and props, designing the light cues and sound effects, and publicizing the show. We try to get each department an assistant as a way of teaching new people about various tech positions and the Barnstormers workflow. These weekly meetings serve to update all departments on where they stand in the process and ask the director any questions.
