A Day in the Life of Theatre: Part 1

Brooke Wachter

Theatre is a lot of work — a show doesn’t just come together all by itself. After every school day, from 2:30 PM to 5 PM the cast and crew work hard at rehearsals to put the show together. This doesn’t count the Saturday work parties from 10 AM to 5 PM.

There are three different types of rehearsals: singing rehearsals, dancing rehearsals, and acting rehearsals. Singing rehearsals take place during the first few weeks of a play. During singing rehearsals, Mrs. Gvakharia, the music director, introduces the songs to the cast members. After we all get a feel for the music, Gvakharia teaches us our parts. Some songs the whole cast sings, and others the leads sing solo. Since this is the case, some rehearsal days are dedicated to certain songs so not everyone has to come in every day. This also gives cast members time to rest their voices.

For now, we work on our songs, but coming soon are… dance rehearsals.
