We moved the show into the venue, The Arena, today. I have just got home and I am crashing, big time. It’s so hectic and scary and intense and amazing and exhausting. I can’t sleep. I’m having weird dreams.
I love the show. I can’t believe how wild it is. I love the cast, musicians, the production team, the designers, the helping hands, the circus guides. I hate the canteen food, the technical side of things, how slow certain stuff is. I love the designer Dicky Longhurst (who was late to come on board, and took over when somebody got sick) who has made miracles, both set wise and costume wise. I Love Alfred Rietmann our production manager who has given us everything we need and more, mainly because he adores the show and loves circuses.
I am terrified thatÂ when people see the poster they are going to think it’s a kiddie’s show. Although I haven’t seen many about. I am hysterical that our performances are all at 1800 and that people won’t come. I am so excited to show this work. I am terrified about what everyone will think. Ah, the week before opening!!!!
