We’re back from New Orleans and what a time we had. We arrived Tuesday night in time to get some food (at the aptly named Pizza Delicious) and catch our friends Almanac’s opening night.
On Wednesday we rehearsed at Dancing Grounds and then moved ourselves into the Old Firehouse (after lunch at the Cake Cafe) to set up the space, tech, and walk through the show. We then performed Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday (with breaks for food, drinks, dancing, and music) and we headed back to Philly on Saturday!
And thus ended the Philly portion of our exchange. We now spend the next two months, all of us in our home cities, reading As You Like It, watching more sci-fi, and doing whatever homework assignments Rebecca throws at us. Some of us will even travel up to RI in January for a post-New Years writing workshop.
Then in February, we reunite! Two intensive weeks of rehearsal followed by shows in Providence March 3-6 and in Boston March 13-16.
We have about $8,000 left to raise to complete our $20,000 match of the NET/TEN grant we received last March. If the holiday spirit moves you to donate, you can do so HERE. Best of all: year end tax-deduction!
