Well, my experiment turned out better then I hoped - not only did I make it through the dress rehearsal, but both performances of Romeo and Juliet! Thank you all so much for your well wishes! :)

It ended up being a blast...I really think I was running on adrenaline. Thursday's run through went well; we performed the next night, as well as Saturday night. It's been an amazing journey and one I am so proud to have taken with our group of kids/friends, especially my dear friend and co-director/fellow actor, Kilah. :)

Here's me after Friday's show with my youngest brother, Little Man - most of the cast and crew went out to Wendy's afterward to eat. (I opted for some oatmeal from home, hence the Coca-Cola lunchbox!) My hair is naturally wavy but we straightened it for the play...

Shrieks of laughter, arm wrestling, and really bad knock-knock jokes ensued at the restuarant. I went home floating on clouds with numb and limp wrists...ah, the theatre! Or should I say, ah, homeschoolers!

An Interesting Experiment

What is it like to run a (and co-direct) full dress rehearsal of Romeo and Juliet on absolutely no sleep or coffee???

While also playing Juliet?

I shall find out!

Assume the worst if I fail to post again....
