As a second-time producer and a senior Board member, there are quite a few things I like to think I’ve gotten used to during my time with HRG&SP. Attending weekly Board meetings has become a part of my regular schedule, shop training now takes a half hour at most, and running production meetings is thoroughly ingrained in my psyche as a technical producer. But one thing that changes with every semester, every cast, and every show is the first day the pieces start to fall into place: The Day of Sitz.
Yesterday, the cast and (ye)orchestra came together for the first time and ran through the entirety of Yeomen of the Guard, and like every Sitzprobe, it was just a little bit magical. Not everything was perfect — nothing ever really is in theater — but getting to watch everyone work and stumble and push through together is part of what I think makes being a producer truly rewarding. Under the watchful eyes of our Music Director, Colton Carter, and our orchestra liaison and producer, Elena Sokoloski, the cast and orchestra made it through an entire run of the show, even bringing some to tears with the final, poignant notes of Jack(ie) Point (Rebecca Thau, ‘20).
We can’t wait to see the show only improve from here! We hope to see you at one of our performances coming up just next month:
