Big Night

Tonight is the big night! Tale of a West Texas Marsupial Girl officially opens at The Children’s Theatre Company – granted, we’ve held public previews all week in addition to rehearsals, but for some reason they haven’t felt like real performances despite relatively full houses. Knowing my family is going to be in the audience tonight definitely raises the stakes.

I have many, many stories to share about rehearsals and shoe problems and quick changes and a bleeding scalp and recording the pre-show turn-off-your-cell-phones announcement, but didn’t have enough energy (especially during the 10- to 12-hour days of tech week) to write them in coherent sentences – I’ll have much more time after this weekend to go back and fill you in on the beans.

Until then, I leave you with some light reading – preview articles from the Star Tribune (including a photo gallery) and the Pioneer Press.

Cheers, Leigha
