I know things have been a bit quiet from me since the auditions, I was thrilled to have so many people audition and be able to cast such a wonderful group of children and youths , but as you will understand having such a large cast has it’s complications so I hope you will all be a bit patient.
Just to confirm performance dates are wed 17th aug-20th Aug ( all performances will be at 7.30 bar Saturday’s which will be at 5pm)
The rehearsals may have to be tweaked a little but please just know they will be the first two weeks of august the Mon and Thursday will remain 6-9pm as I work those days but there may be a few changes to the other days , we are having a production meeting tomorrow so will be able to give you a better idea after that.
The scheduled read though on 23rd at my house will be cancelled as there is just not enough space and it would be nice for as much as the cast as possible to be at the read through so there isn’t a ‘them and us feeling’. I must just mention here that even if your character or part does not seem to have a lot of lines there is plenty for everyone to do and everyone is vital to the show. I am planning to try and book space at the theatre in the third week of July but will let you know when exactly that will be.
I recommend that everyone has a read through of the script they are only a couple of pounds from amazon, we are using the collins edition so I would recommend you all get your own copy if you haven’t already so you can be as informed as possible about the play before we start rehearsing and for those with lines please can you learn them before the Rehearsals start as we have a very short rehearsal time and will have to spend a lot of time on the big musical pieces.
The majority of costumes have been hired but you may be asked to provide a few additions I will try hard to make these as minimal as possible. For rehearsals I would like all the cast to wear rehearsal blacks, black t shirts with comfortable easy to move in black trousers/leggins.
A small plea – one of my big issues is that I will have my five year old with me and although she will be ok for a lot of the time I am worried she will be a disturbance and that of course she may get a bit bored, daddy will be able to get her after 7 but when we do big long day rehearsals if anyone could help by taking her out to the park or something similar it would be a big help please let me know if anyone is happy to help in this regard thank you so much, I will do my best to keep you all up to date with all things bugsy- If you know of anyone who hasn’t received this email please let me know so I can add them to the list. – I dont have Izzy’s contact details so if anyone has them that would be great.
