I remember writing a piece for a university class that had to be written using mostly cliches.
So I thought let me revive this great art and write about my experience of rehersing for "Shakers & Bouncers" using cliches. It has been said that cliches are often employed for comic effect...at least my attempt at it!
Everyone knows that laughter is the best medicine. If this is the case, the numerous laughs we have had at rehersals means I am healthy from here to eternity. At least for me, switching genders means I have had to really get to the bottom of the female psyche. I am going to go out on a limb here and say that I am still far, far away from understanding it all...
There is of course no such thing as a free lunch and creating a show of just one hour takes many, many hours of practice. I can say though the spirit at rehersals has been all for one and one for all! And generally we are of course all ears for our director! We don't just go through the motions but on a couple of occasions I have got off (the floor) on the wrong foot...Messed up my counting!
It is a good thing that rehersals are not at the crack of dawn! Somehow I think it would be tough to teach old dogs ( I count myself here too) tricks at such an early hour. After all, we all like to catch our 40 winks! We generally have one 6 hour rehersal on the weekend, so I think we all count our blessings it is not two since I think my feet would die!
Overall, I think everything's coming up roses and the show will be good as gold!
So in the words of the DJ, do come along and enjoy this extravaganza!
