What happens at evening rehearsals?
Evening rehearsals are the main rehearsals for acting, singing, dancing, and fight choreography for the scenes and for the vignettes. Rehearsal time is usually scheduled in one-hour blocks. Rehearsals for acting, singing, dancing, and fight choreography will all happen separately and may take place on different nights. There are only three weeks of rehearsals, so please do your best to attend all your scheduled rehearsals. Unless you hear otherwise from the Stage Manager, you must attend all three weeks.
When and where are they?
Evening rehearsals normally run Monday through Friday from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm during the first three full weeks of the term. Scenes are schedule individually, and the schedule is available on the calendar. You should aim to arrive about 10 minutes early; the rehearsal will begin promptly at the scheduled time. Please wait outside the rehearsal room until asked in.
By the second week of rehearsals, you should be off-book, meaning that you have all your lines memorized and you don’t need your script. In the second week, the Stage Manager or Assistant Stage Manager will prompt your lines if needed, but in the third week, you will be entirely on your own.
Evening rehearsals are usually held in Hagey Hall, but may be elsewhere. The rooms we have available may vary from night to night, so be sure to check the calendar for the correct rooms.
What if I can’t make it?
Contact the Stage Manager. Please do your best to attend—there are only three weeks of rehearsals!
What should I bring?
You should bring your script (in hard copy!) and a pen/pencil to take notes with. For choreography rehearsals, you should bring comfortable clothing that will be flexible when moving around. You may also want to bring water, although we normally hold rehearsals in rooms with water fountains nearby.
