the natives are getting restless

let's just say tonight's rehearsal wasn't the smoothest i've ever seen. but i can't say it was unexpected. it's a first production and on a shoestring budget. costumes look great. set..... not so much, seems they ran out of time and possibly money so it's been stripped back a bit. and they're short handed stage tech wise. (they really need volunteers, them union guys ain't cheap) so we only made it through the first act. the second act should run smoother, i don't think there are as many scene changes. anywho, there was quite a bit of grumbling from some chorus people. they'd asked last week for volunteers to help with the set painting, but the ones that showed up weren't given much to do and things were dissorganized. personally, i'm not too worried, they've still got a few days to get things worked out.
