One week to go until Opening Night! We finally get to see our costumes at Costume Call on Tuesday. There are over 200 costumes, with some people having four or more. Most are hired, but our Wardrobe Mistress has also been hard at work, making some for the “Havana” number. We will be running the show in costume this week so that we can make sure everything works & can be altered before Opening Night if necessary.
Everything will start to feel ‘real’ on Sunday when we do our final dress rehearsal in full make-up & costume & also have the band in the orchestra pit.
While writing this I heard that snow & ice has been forecast for this coming week, so spare a thought for us Show Girls & dancers wearing tiny costumes in sub-zero temperatures-might have to wear the thermal vest & long johns instead...
Watch this space for updates on final preparations..
