Early on in rehearsals, we concentrated on working on smaller individual scenes and sections. Now we’re in week three and starting to stitch all the different elements together and then add in the music, movement and fights; of which there are many! It’s a roller coaster ride. My script is marked with notes like ‘pack quick change costume into bag’ or more cryptically ‘ship roll to starboard, wash 2,3,4, back to aft galley.’ There are days I honestly don’t remember writing the notes at all! But whenever I’m watching sections I’m not in, it’s so exciting, so while this is definitely the most challenging point of rehearsals, seeing it come together is such fun.
