A Community

The interesting thing about Godspell rehearsals is that the cast is starting to become a community. By that, I mean, that we are all starting to like and respect each other not just as actors, but as people.

Last night, we all met for dinner an hour before rehearsal. As we were eating, the director asked us a series of questions to help us get to better know one another. The questions were sometimes serious, but generally were along the lines of, "Would you rather lick all the bug remnants off of the grill of an eighteen wheeler after a cross country drive or suck on a frozen piece of dog poop for thirty seconds?"

The last question he posed was "Where do you see yourself in ten years?" This of course made everyone thoughtful, and was actually a very good note to end on, because it gave each of us a little glimpse into one another's souls.

It may just be a false understanding, but I think we all know each other a little better today than we did yesterday, and while I can't possibly have all of these people as good friends, it is good to know that they all seem to be pretty good people, and that my own investment in this group and theatre is well worth my time and effort not just for the show produced, but for the relationships developed.

This show and this whole experience are gonna rock.

Sounds fantastic, but why would you ever have to make the decision between frozen poop and bugs?

You never know, Saint Me...You never know.

I hope you guys get to know each other real well! And that your director doesn't go crazy & start hating on one of you guys!

He really doesn't seem like the type to do that, even much less so than the last one.

I'm so excited about this show.

That is awesome. It is a very cool thing when you are able to connect with your cast. Those are the shows that have stuck with me the longest and mean the most to me to have been a part of.
