Tonight was opening night! I had fun doing the lights. The whole production was a little shaky in the beginning, but we came back for a great 2nd and 3rd act. I am sure that tomorrow night is going to be a lot better, since we know what to expect with an audience there. I didn't do anything drastic or major, but my cue for the intermission could have gone quicker. C'est la vie. I had fun though.
The company had a little party afterward, which I hung out at for a bit, meeting new people and introducing myself to company members I had only met that first meeting back in June. Everyone there is very welcoming and so nice and friendly. I really can't wait to be part of an ensemble there to put on a show. We have our company meeting on Wednesday night, which I can actually make this month. The past two months I haven't been able to attend either because of work or class. We are going to discuss the 2011 season. Like I mentioned last night, I am reading plays, that I might throw out there to be produced. But I am getting ahead of myself.
Today at work, they added 5 more table to the restaurant for the beginning of Oktoberfest (Sept 25th) which adds 100 more customers that we can accomodate. We got slammed for 2 whole hours at lunch today, but they found out that the kitchen is not big enough to accomodate the 100 extra customers, so we had a few angry customers. I'm not sure how the people who run the restaurant thought it was a great idea, I believe all they saw was the money and not the logistics of it all, but now they know. I don't know if they are going to take the tables out or add another kitchen to the restaurant, I wouldn't put it past them. Oh and for Oktoberfest, we have to be fitted for authentic sexy Fraulein outfits. Can you say, "Oh, joy!" I have a feeling some guy is going to get a knuckle sandwich if they get feisty with Ms. Tara. I'm just sayin! :)
Until tomorrow. Take care and be safe.
All my love,
