Horse Whinny and Crazy Chicken Cluck
Costumes and sound effects added to Our Town rehearsals
Get ready for Our Town. Only a few rehearsals left ... then it’s on stage—opening night at The Carrefour is Thursday, April 9th.
Today (Sunday, 29 March) we were all in costume, and did it ever look good. Pam, Hélène, Vanessa, Karen and Alison have made us look like we authentically belong at the beginning of the twentieth century.
Sound effects were introduced today—including the clucking of a crazy chicken and the whinny of Bessie the milk-wagon horse.
There were tears of joy for the wedding scene ... but also a chuckle as Mrs. Soames (Barb Rhodenhizer) said “Doesn’t she make a lovely bride?” and George (Fraser McCallum) spoke his “I do” a little too quickly!
This is going to be a very good show. Because of the large cast, with so many fans!!, and because it’s the special anniversary of ACT’s very first production, there’s a ‘risk’ of sell-out. So it’s probably a wise move to get tickets well ahead of time. There are three ways of doing that:
(i) online at www.actourtown.brownpapertickets.com;
(ii) by phone at 1-800-838-3006 ext1;
(iii) in-person cash sale at the Charlottetown Farmers Market on Saturday morning, April 4th.
