Countdown to opening night…

The pressure is really on for the cast and crew of Habeas Corpus with opening night just over a week away. We had a really long day rehearsing Sunday and thanks to Mel Hawkins, our trusty choreographer, the dance routines have now been set – and they look great! Singing rehearsals are also well underway with stalwart Musical Director Ron Chapman at the helm, and things are coming together very nicely.

I have been very fortunate with this production in that the cast have been terrifically dedicated to learning their lines, and for some, scripts have been down for some considerable time. It’s inevitable when you’re dealing with such a large cast (eleven in this production!) that there will be times when actors are not being used, but all have been wonderfully patient, quietly running lines with other members of the cast when not required onstage.

Many thanks to fellow committee members Don Tooby and Howard Taylor who have very kindly helped construct and decorate the set. Despite a few initial glitches with the wallpaper, it’s looking good and once we get the upstage wall painted and curtain hung we’re just about there!

Tickets are now on sale for Habeas Corpus and can be purchased from the Royal Wanganui Opera House. The production plays from 29th July to 6th August. Catch up regularly on Repertory news by visiting our brand new website – www.wanganuirepertorytheatre.co.nz
