Last night was our first rehearsal. After the obligatory nice-to-meet-yous and gossiping about the new people behind their backs, we started going over the music. First off I would like to say this music is a BLAST! When do you get to sing a Beach Boys song in a show? On that note... THANK GOD I DON'T HAVE TO SING THE ENTIRE BEACH BOYS SONG! Most of the music is pretty easy (compared to other Newline shows I have done), but as we learned doing the Sheldon Concert, Brian Wilson's music is H-A-R-D. I think I saw Zach cry a little.
Betsy is our costumer for the show and she brought little bits and pieces of the costumes last night. Needless to say she was a big tease, but I am VERY excited about her vision and I think this show will have some edge to it and the costumes will be as interesting as the material.
Also, the search is on for my robot voice... if anyone has any suggestions, please leave them in the comments. I am thinking something like Data from Star Trek Next Generation. You know... more humanoid than synthesized machine (Oh my God, I just sounded like a geek... ARRGH).
That's all for now... I will keep you up-to-date as we go.
