Although "behind the scenes" work has been going on for some time, last night was the first cast rehearsal for this fall's musical from our production company, Christ Memorial Productions. We're doing "Annie" this September (for two weeks - 18th, 19th, 20th, 25th, 26th, 27th!) and boy did the Muny set the bar high this past week! Their production of "Annie" this year was the best I've seen. Still, I promise that you will not be disappointed with our production. Anyone who has ever seen one of ours will tell you the same!
Here are a couple of shots I took at the initial cast rehearsal. You know the drill, all shots available light, Nikon D60, 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 kit lens.
FDR's wheelchair. How awesome is that? As far as you know, this really could BE his wheelchair!
...and here's the cast! Doing their first read-through.
We got kids! You wouldn't believe how many talented kids are right here in St. Louis!
A part of the world's greatest tech crew. Someday, they will invent awards just to give them to this group. How many tech crews show up at the first read through? OURS! They rock. Seriously.
Believe it or not, this really is our lighting director, Kristi. She HAS won an award! If you look closely at this picture, you can see why she is so awesome at lighting. She's pretty much a colorful blur!
