While the rehearsal process for Snoopy!!! had its occasional uncomfortable moments and flaws, the rehearsal process for Godspell is just a wonderful, wonderful experience.
Every person in Godspell is amazingly talented, and while this is also the case for Snoopy!!!, when you consider that Godspell has fifty people or so in its cast, it is all the more amazing.
Every time I go to rehearsal, I am left in awe of how well these people can sing and dance. While I am also a part of the dancing, the directors have wisely opted to stick me in the back of the stage where wandering eyes are less likely to see my robotic motions.
Both shows are wonderful, and I am terrifically blessed to be a part of them.
One thing worth noting, though, is that I am probably the fourth oldest person in the cast for Godspell, and I'm twenty four. That leaves forty-six people younger than me. One of the two women in the cast jokes with me that we are the grandparents of the show.
However, even with the age difference, though it is relatively small, everyone in the cast is really nice to me. As I left last night after rehearsal, no fewer than three people said "Good night, AC!" This is because I'm pompous, and I insist that they call me by my blogging alias.
I don't even know some of these people's names. I'm going to have to work on that. However, with the joy that this show is, this effort won't be a chore.
