Ready, Set, GO! Or: Ready or Not, Here We Come

This is it, gang.  Home stretch, the final countdown, last chance for gas, the 90th minute.  We rehearse tonight, we rehearse on Sunday night, on Monday we pack up the truck and on Tuesday - we're "home", at the theater in Beer Sheva, for a technical rehearsal. Which usually goes on well into the wee hours.....

 Wednesday night full dress rehearsal, and on Thursday March 3 CAMELOT is up and running!

We've had our fair share of drama this year. 

King Arthur got laryngitis, and none of Merlin's potions could help. Some last minute changes were made to the script.  Gah!  Final bits of scenery have yet to be delivered, and our costume designer is still trying to get the knights' helmets to work.  On Thursday, Lancelot sang an entire solo with his visor down..... made for some interesting echo effects.

Incidentally, we're celebrating LOGON's 35th season this year!!!  Happy Birthday LOGON!

On a personal note, I am pleased to report that this year I'm having NO TROUBLE AT ALL remembering my lines.  Possibly because i don't actually have any lines, but whatever, it feels great.  

Also: intended to do a "Camelot on the Couch" post about King Arthur, but only about ten people read the last post (about Lancelot) -- [THANKS GUYS, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!!] - so decided that maybe it wasn't an interesting thread.  If anyone is interested, let me know in the comments, and it will be done.  Your wish is my command!

So!!!  Hope people will turn out in their multitudes to join us, for an evening, where the rain may never fall til after sundown, and by 8 the morning fog must disappear.  

See you at the show!

PS   We have one dear Lady of the Court who is ill and will apparently not be able to perform with us this season.  Get Well Quick, dear lady, we miss you much, verily!
