After 200+ hours of rehearsal, tech, and performance, it's finally time to say goodbye to the Cider House Rules! I couldn't have asked for a more stellar cast and creative team- this journey has been a marathon and I've gained so many takeaways and lessons both artistically and in my personal life. Learning how to manage time balancing both Modern Minority and schoolwork, along with a 25+ hour/week rehearsal schedule (50+ hours/week during tech!!!). Learning how to stay engaged and continually discover and taking risks throughout our 12 performances. Understanding that each rehearsal is another opportunity to push further past my own artistic comfort zone.
While I'll be sad to leave this production behind, it's been a wonderful 6 weeks and I can't wait to rest, recover, and reach forward to the next exciting project!
