Super Doodle: 1st Episode

Last night was the first rehearsal/read-through of It’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s Superman in which doodle’s truly will be playing the villain Dr. Abner Sedgwick, which ya’ll already had be know. Despite a way too warm room (and we all know how much doodle’s truly sweats when he’s a workin’), it was a very fun evening. Everyone is very fun and funny and “whatte whatte whatte.” We sing that at some point in the finale. We went through the entire script marking all of the cuts that Mr. Director Man had judiciously made to get the show from about 2 hours down to 90 minutes. There are some more cuts to follow that are yet to be finalized. We made it through, just reading the lines, no music, with notes about cuts in about 80 minutes or so. Ummmm, I have some work to do. I have some wordy wordy dialogue that I am excited to take on, but it’s gonna take some work. Who wants to run lines????? Then we learned the music for one of the big ensemble numbers “It's Superman,” and then we learned the finale. Woot woot! Tomorrow the principals are rehearsing and I believe Mr. Director Man said we are going to block the entire show and learn music in our down time. This is going to be a whirlwind process. 5 weeks!

Dood, can Doodle doo it? Stay tooned…

Yay!!! Fun-ness.

At least the blocking can't be too extensive cause of space, right? Maybe that will be the easy part so you can focus on music and lines.

weee!
