on the Arts Centre Mainstage in February of 2009
I'm always glad to work with Director Thomas Usher. He generously does some double casting in his shows at RDC which gives more students a crack at larger roles- but it poses a challenge for others in slowing the rehearsal process. It worked out that when we started to hang and focus lights I'd only seen Act 1, which was unsettling, but having a couple moving lights and follow-spots made it easier, not knowing where specials were needed until late in the game. This timeline challenge has become the norm at RDC since then, with the new program rehearsing on a more professional schedule. I really loved the work of Set Designer C M Zuby and Costume Designer Carrie Hamilton. This was my first time working with Cindi and she is a great collaborator.
