FIRST OF ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I FOUND A PICTURE OF MY TAP COSTUME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We aren't wearing the blue choker, we decided to sew it onto the leotard as a second strap.

Today shall be very boring.... No class, No rehearsal, No nothing! I'm kind of happy, kind of not.... Maybe it's good though.... Here is my schedule for the next couple days:
Thursday, Dress Rehearsal: Arrive at the theater at 3:00, go home at 8:00

Friday, Show (Day #1): Arrive at the theater at 6:00, (show at 7:00), go home at 10:00

Saturday, Show (Day #2): Arrive at the theater at 1:00, (show at 2:00), get dinner at 4:30, be back at the theater by 6:00, (show at 7:00), go home at 10:00!

WHEW!!!! Long days, I calculated that we will be at the theater for 5 hours on Thursday, 4 hours on Friday, and 9 HOURS ON SATURDAY!!!

Yesterday we had rehearsal for the ballet scene. Basically, what happens, is tinker bell has two BEST friends. So best friend #1 does a solo, ballet 1 does a dance, Best friend #2 does a solo, ballet 3 sat. does a dance, tinkerbell does a solo, ballet 3 thu. does a dance, and then ballet 6 finishes that section off with a dance.

Now you know WHY we had the rehearsal. It went really well! We were able to practice the whole thing 3 times, once facing the mirror, and twice facing the back.

And lastly, yesterday, after the rehearsal, I got pulled into something TOTALLY random for the show.

After the rehearsal, the director came in, and was like, "ARE THERE ANY SHADOWS HERE?" So me and 3 other girls came up... And here is what we were supposed to do.

In the star dance, Peter Pan, Wendy, John, and Michael have to "fly" across the stage. So the director's husband made these little cart things for them to fly across on. We have to run across the stage pushing the characters on the carts! I thought that was pretty creative, and funny. :P Since we have the black unitards, the audience can't see us very well.
