Woo-hoo! Things are moving!
So I had to wait until I was contacted; and then I wasn't contacted, so I did the contacting.
I've been approved to workshop- woot woot! I'll get the spare room at the theatre and plenty of available input into staging ideas. Should be exciting!
Naturally, there are a few conditions: a theatre board member must be present at every read-through, which I figured was a given; it's a theatre meeting, pretty much, plus it's at the actual theatre, so someone should be on hand to guard against monkeyshines.
I'm also in charge of organizing the actual meeting, and scheduling the date and time. Not as easy as it sounds. The schedule must of course be approved by the theatre, and at this point there is now a show to work around. Auditions for the season opener were held this past Sunday and Monday; I understand there was even a hold-up, due to difficulty in casting one of the parts. So now I have to give the director a day or two to work out the rehearsal schedule, at which point hopefully I can bug her to see what day the theatre will be unoccupied. Then, and only then, can I approve the date; then, and only then, can I post/send out notifications of the date.
Did I mention I want to get this started before July ends? Kind of biting my nails here.
But at least things are moving along still, and in the right direction. Updates to come!
