And so to rehearsals for Sainsburys Singers‘ performance of Chess The Musical at The Hexagon, Reading on 27-31 October. Having just got home from the first run-through I must say I am impressed by the quality of the singing of what is a very difficult score. Soloists are strong and the cast at full bore nearly took the roof off the rehearsal venue. Exciting!
As for my part in this, lighting, a whole stack of moving lights and three or four days to plot wouldn’t go amiss. But for all sorts of reasons I have to achieve the desired effect with less time and conventional fixtures. So my next few evenings are accounted for as I will be quite happily buried in the task of ensuring I have the many fast-flowing scenes covered.
