Anyway, today I am going to share some pictures that were taken at rehearsal a few weeks ago. These are just from Act I, and the people who were taking them are in the show so there couldn't be pictures of every scene, but these are the only ones I have so far and I thought you'd all like to see them. :-)
This is our Valjean. He's really amazing.
Valjean and the Bishop
Fantine, singing I Dreamed a Dream
"You let your foreman seeennnnnnd me away! Yes, you were there, and turned aside!"
"Come to me, Cosette, the light is fading..."
I LOVE this part. It's actually really romantic, because Valjean and Fantine are married. :-)
Valjean and Javert
Javert singing Stars.
He's also really amazing. We just have a really great cast, that's what.
Thenardier, marveling about how all the bits and pieces increase. ;-P
Thenardier with little Cosette. Madam Thenardier was absent from this rehearsal.
There's me! :-) Marius and Eponine in The Beggars-- and by the way, those aren't his lines, what you see there is the early stages of a prop. ;-P
"Eponine, do this for me, discover where she lives..."
"Eponine, you're the friend who has brought me here,
Thanks to you I am one with the gods and heaven is near!"
Attack on the Rue Plumet
Eponine standing alone in the shadows, while Marius and Cosette sing A Hear Full of Love.
Those are all the pictures I have right now, but hopefully there will be more, from Act 2 and with costumes. Yikes, I can hardly believe the show is almost here! It seems like only a few days ago I found out I was cast! Being in a show like this is like nothing I've ever done before, and it hasn't been quite as I'd expected-- that is, it's more challenging than I might have thought. Acting takes some getting used to, especially for someone like me who normally just sings. But, with practice, and thanks to some other members of the cast who've taken the trouble to give me some advice, I'm getting more used to it and more confident of myself. Seriously, this show is going to be amazing. I am so thankful that I have the opportunity to be a part of this! :-)
That's all for now, folks! If you think of it, I would really appreciate your prayers in the next few weeks!
