Pirates of Penzance

Hallo everyone!

 Wow, long time no see, huh? I keep meaning to post on here but forget... I've been too busy with Spinj's Space and Spinj's LEGO Blog.

 Well, I suppose mum told you all that I'm in a production of The Pirates of Penzance? *Looks through posts* Yup, she did. Well then, I suppose I'll give you an update on it! :D

 Rehearsals are lots of fun at the moment. We finished learning the songs about a month and a half ago - maybe with the exception of some of the principles and one of the chorus members, as they keep forgetting the words to songs - and we're now doing blocking. For those who don't know, blocking is where the director shows us where he wants us to stand, occasionally how we're supposed to react to stuff, etc.
 Dad and I went to a rehearsal yesterday, and at the end of it found out that the whole show had been completely blocked! Now we just need to run through the whole thing a few more times so that it runs smoothly.

 I also made up a hashtag for the show, but it's not official... yet. It's #PerthPirates2015, and I used it on G+ and Facebook. :P
 Here are some photos from the blocking:

2. Rehearsing the beginning scene from Act II

 We're having loads of fun, it's so amazing to be in a production again. X3

 The show starts in... three weeks, I think. We're doing nine shows - the last time I was in something big we only did four. It's going to be tiring, but I reckon I'll survive! That said, we're doing three rehearsals a week at the moment... :P

 If you guys want to have regular updates on how it's going, sail over to the Gilbert and Sullivan FB page! :D The Gilbert and Sullivan Society of WA | Facebook
 There's also and event page with details about the show, so feel free to check it out!

 See y'all later!
