Olivia gives an update on this week’s Game Face rehearsals
Remember what I said last week about us having so much more? Well, another scene was blocked tonight! There’s nothing greater than it being 9:15pm and the whole ensemble performing a very emotional scene, with no major mistakes, which we’ve spent two rehearsals working on.
The company has been newspaper crazy for the past few days in rehearsals. I can guarantee that if you handed a cast member of Game Face a sheet of newspaper, they’ll either triumphantly start making some origami or break down in sheer confusion.
We also had a cast photo shoot today. It’s not easy to fit a twenty-odd cast into one photo, let me tell you, but from what I’ve seen, the photos are looking really good! Special thanks to Ricky, Vicky and the Marketing Forum for creating that!
Perhaps the main highlight of the evening was the preview of the Game Face band’s music. We had a taste of Milly Bianchini’s musical genius last year in 3am and she’s back with some absolutely amazing new work. Such a beautiful piece we’ve listened to and I can say, on behalf of the cast, that we all feel truly honoured to be working with such talented musicians.
Even if you don’t like theatre, which would be odd as to why you’re reading this in the first place, I’d still say that you should get tickets just to hear the great music.
But if you are one of the sane people that have already bought their ticket, you should go and join the Facebook event page and jump in all the talk on Twitter using the hash tag #CYCGameFace
