Last night was the best cast party I've ever been to! Previous best was when I was thirteen, after 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' our teacher had us over to her house for a barbeque and things devolved into a water fight between fifteen teenagers.

This cast is full of twenty somethings and a few older returning students/local actors that know our director. Director did have us over to his house, and he did barbeque for us, but then we went into his awesome movie theater room and watched a recording of our play; we may have watched each other all the time during practices, but we never got to see the special effects and all the costumes together at once, so it was pretty cool to finally see all of our work come together as a whole. We still went all MST3K on it and at each other, all in good fun since we also quoted lines and sang along together.

When we moved back outside, instead of having a water fight we lit a bonfire! And one of the mortals is a fire dancer, and she "just happened" to have brought her poi along, so she gave us a dance. Then we just sat around the fire and talked, of everything and nothing, quoted other plays and sang, both Disney and Rocky Horror songs. The party was supposed to run to 10 o'clock, but it was still going strong when Dad dragged me home at 11 o'clock.

We all had so much fun together that we're going to have another party together to celebrate the end of finals in two weeks!

Good night, good night, parting is such sweet sorrow,
That I shall say good night till it be morrow.
- Juliet, Romeo and Juliet

If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended,
That you have but slumber'd here
While these visions did appear.
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend:
if you pardon, we will mend:
And, as I am an honest Puck,
If we have unearned luck
Now to 'scape the serpent's tongue,
We will make amends ere long;
Else the Puck a liar call;
So, good night unto you all.
Give me your hands, if we be friends,
And Robin shall restore amends.

- Puck, A Midsummer Night's Dream

And now we are done. 'Orpheus in the Underworld' took a lot of work and it was a lot of fun. None of us really wanted it to end, but it has. Mostly... :)

We had so much fun together even off-stage that we are electively meeting up again at the regular class time and taking over the school theater to watch Disney's "Hercules", whose song "Going the Distance" kinda became our anthem. And we'll be having a proper cast party at the end of the week. And, and our teacher is writing a play for our county's summer theater festival and most of us are also in it!

The noob of our class told us "Good luck," right before going out for our first performance. The rest of us were on him in a moment and schooled him in the superstitions of theater, and threatened blood if he'd cursed us. The outlook for him was quite grim in the first ten minutes; two times the wrong music came up, three delayed entrances, moved props and costume changing difficulties. However, after those first ten minutes the play went fine, and our second performance was great. Today's shows went perfect, and we have only one more performance tomorrow evening.

Ah, Drama Class. Where, when someone randomly starts singing a Disney song, everyone else joins in.  : )

Tomorrow we perform!

Oh thank god that's done. Having finals week right after a week of performances is exhausting, and I'm certain that my nervous energy prevented me from getting enough sleep. Then again, most of my classes have been easy subjects for me, I'm really only concerned about introductory engineering (so very much not my forte). But now its done, and I can sleep as much as I like tomorrow.

Hell week starts tomorrow. I know my lines and my blocking but I'm still nervous as all get out. I haven't gotten butterflies before a play in awhile, but then its been two years since my last one. And I've never done more than three performances, one per night; this play, we're doing three performances per afternoon for three days for the campus, then a final night performance for our families.


I just made the butterflies worse. Argh!
