    i'm not 100% positive on this, (our director is taking a long time to decide this year...) but i think our spring musical is going to be hello dolly. i don't really know much of anything about the play yet, but has anyone else done it before? if so, any tips?? thanks!

    mmm Hello Dolly is a good one. It being my first musical, i myself enjoy it. I'm sure you'll have "put on your sunday clothes" stuck in your head for quite some time. seeing as i did that show forever ago and even thinking about it brings the song to my head! Also, its probably taking your director so long to choose a musical cause she knows she cant top Children of Eden :D . well...maybe not, but it is certainly an excellent show!

    I wish you much luck with whatever show you do end up doing!

    Ya, our actors just started rehersing for our spring show. The director wont bother giving me a script until about 2 weeks before the show and then I only have the last week of rehersals to do everything (doing tech before the last week interupts the actors and hinders their preformance!).

    Sorry I cant be more help, I have never done that play :-/

    Yep, I have pulled many 18 hour days at school (getting there arround 7 and not leaving until after midnight) working those plays. Everything always works out, but i am left with the feeling of "what more could I have done to make it better if I had more time." I guess it is kinda a good thing that she doenst give us a ton of time too, b/c I wouldnt get any schoolwork done at all!
