CanÂ't Stop the Beat: SMTÂ's HAIRSPRAY rehearsal blog – Part 3

Cant-Stop-the-Beat-SMTs-HAIRSPRAY-rehearsal-blog-Part-3-20010101

Oh my holy hell!  The rehearsals are keeping me hopping.  Sorry for the lack of blog entries but I have been crazy busy trying to learn all those dances and songs.  And I don't even have the lion's share.  Our poor Tracy (Kate Moyer) only has three numbers she's not in!

But it's really starting to come together.  The dances are tough for me but I'm trying to make the best of them.  And we just had our big music review of the whole show last night and it sounds AMAZING.  I especially have to note Kate and our wonderful Motormouth Maybelle (Stacie Calkins) who literally stopped rehearsal with her incredible rendition of "I Know Where I've Been".  There will not be a dry eye in the house.  Oh and if you'd like a little sneak peek at the amazing Stacie, she's doing a one woman tribute to Aretha Franklin this weekend.  Check out the theater website for more details.

But for now all I can offer is some more shots from rehearsal.  This is a great group to work with and it's gonna be a killer show!

"Hairspray" runs at Seattle Musical Theatre from November 11th through December 11th.  For tickets or information contact the Seattle Musical Theatre box office at 206-363-2809 or visit them online at www.seattlemusicaltheatre.org.
