We are down to under twelve hours to production. Two late night dress rehearsals with lights and sounds...a bit ranting and raving (at least no one quit the show) and we are just about ready to take to the stage.
The planning and work has been more than even I expected...but oh, what a great evening is planned for everyone attending. We are even featuring a reception in the intermission time for all of the actresses. And at last count it looks like we might be close to a sell out!
The women in the cast have become sisters to each other...taking care of each other...encouraging each other...pushing each other.
I feel so honored and proud and a bit of the pioneer spirit to bring Eve Ensler's Vagina Monologues to Steuben County.
So, without further adieu...let's open the curtains...let the show begin!
