The Brush Up Rehearsal

March 4, 2011

This is only really necessary if your show runs for 2 weekends or (gasp) more. If you have a brush up, you should run it the day before the show starts the second weekend, and have no sets, no props, no costumes, no makeup, no pit, just the rehearsal pianist and the cast. The show should run fast, and then you send the kids home. You don’t want to wear them out, you just want to run them through their paces again. And if something crashes, don’t spend a bunch of time fixing it, unless it has never worked to begin with. It might scare them into paying attention when it comes around the next day. Also, allow them to have fun with it. It’ll keep the thing fresh.
