I wish I actually blogged more about it, but I just never got around to it.
Overall, this wasn't the experience I thought it'd be. From the days I wish I didn't have to go to the long tech nights, I won't forget this experience. I could spend hours saying "it would've been better if..." but what's done is done.
I've learned a lot this whole play. I've learned what it takes, difference between a bad and good stage
Yea, I'm assuming it's Day 27. Days of when we actually meet.
So, tech week/performances are approaching fast (First week of may). We have next week, Spring Break, which will be run throughs. The following week would be the last rehearsal week, then tech week begins on the Friday.

I personally didn't know. The only other times I ASM'd before were for fairly small shows which didn't call for a lot of work. Essentially, she is screwing up so far because we have been doing
So I decided to use the blog feature a bit more. I'll be posting about a play I am doing at my school. I wont post EVERY day but at least something regularly.
