Grease - Opening Weekend

I had a difficult week, work (my day job) was a challenge as was tech week for Grease. We had the usual challenges of getting the set installed and painted, finishing costumes, and getting the lighting just right, but additionally we had to get used to hand held mics, some difficult set changes and lots of props.

I was worried, but our opening Friday Night went really well. Of course the night was not flawless, but this is live theater, and anything and everything can happen. We had sold out audiences for all three performances, the energy of the cast was fantastic, and we sailed through the little mishaps, that the audience probably didn't even notice. From the audience members that I spoke to they had a good time, and that is the most important thing.

Ticket sales seem to be going well, so rumor has it we may be adding another performance to our run.
