Today I will let you in on what I do durning the show.
It is a crazy run this year. In short, I don't have anytime to sit down. Maybe a little at the top of act 2 but other then that...NONE!
Here is a break down of scene:
I am on SR Prom top left before ambush.
Durning ambush, I fight Simon Kenton and get my butt kicked... but Live!
This year I am in the touture scene!! I don't mess with the captive, but here is a spolier alert:
When you see me go behind the captive, I am handing off a blood bag.
After this scene, carry the captive off.
This is the Leanig Tree scene, not in this year. However I still have to run over to stage left to change, clean up, and get ready for 1.3.
I am not on the main stage! However it is so worth it, I get to walk a horse!:) I love me some Phoebe (name of the horse)
Look for me using the pond path twice durning this scene.
Again, even though I am not in this scene, I have so much to do!!
I have to change costumes - this is the log part - and I have to fix my makeup - this takes the longest. Usually I can get done before the music cue but sometimes I don't. The music starts signals for the end of 1.4
A nice easy scene in terms of movement.
I enter Stage Left in the tunnel carrying the Chief's stool.
This scene, I kneel behind the Chief and that is that. Of course I am in agreement with the Chief, but not for Tecusmeh leading.
Once the scene is over, we run off like mad men through the stage left tunnel for 1.6
Thankfully I don't have a costume change -that is saved for act 2. This scene I enter with an evil white man that we are trading off. I don't like him very much as you may see. He is getting traded for my brother in this scene.
When we left him go, I make sure he has it!:)
This scene is one of my favorites becuase there is this great tension, but also a nice peacfulness that is later destroyed at the end!
I can't give that away!:)
After being involved with a special moment in this show, we exit stage left again. This is the one time I have some time to relax...ish.
I have a small costume change and this head over to stage right to get ready for the best scene of this show!
This scene is crazy.
Here is the simple run down:
Enter stage Right cross to stage left
Exit stage right
Sprint (and I mean sprint) to stage left
Enter stage Left
Exit Stage Right
Sprint to stage Left
Enter Stage Left!:)
I love that moment! I guess I love being times and I have to be on stage at a certain point to be able to get my weapon and war paint on. Sometimes I cut it very close!;)
This scene is all about the plan and Tecumseh getting us all rallied up! This is where my favorite moment happens:
THE WAR DANCE!
This year you will see me with a spear. I am a head attacker this year. Tony and I get to "kill" the head stag!;) that is such a fun moment!!
At one point I am handed the Cermonial War Spear! I must say that I am thrilled to be holding this. Do some research ok regarding the importance of this war spear and you may see why I was thrilled to be holding it. It is basically a honor to hold this!
At the end of this dance we exit stage left again. At this point there will be a 15 minute intermission!
Break time? Nope! You will just have to wait to read about what happens at intermission through the rest of the show!;)
That concludes Act 1 blocking and break down that involves me. If you are seeing the show...hint hint.. This will be very valuable for you!:)
Have a great Thursday! Look for act 2 break down tomorrow morning!
