After nearly 6 weeks, we are done rehearsals. We are now ready to install our 2 shows on the ship. Rehearsals were very demanding, but also a lot of fun to live in Miami for a month. We only had 1 day off a week, but we tried to venture out as much as we could. We spent 1 night in Hallandale, 1 night at Ft.Lauderdale beach at the W hotel, and one night in Orlando before we went to Disney World! We rented a car for our last week here, which was awesome! One of my favourite things to do in Miami is going to the Aventura mall!! I do not think Jordan agrees, but we spent some quality time there, and I purchased many wonderful things, not to mention there is a cheesecake factory!! I am really looking forward to the ship! From what I gather, the first 2 weeks are going to be very overwhelming, but at least I have been warned! We will have to do costume runs, training, trying the numbers with the props/sets, and we also have to re-block both of our shows! On top of that, I will also have training to be the wig and wardrobe supervisor. Not quite sure how I got myself into this job, but I am in charge of maintaining the wigs, and fixing/cleaning the costumes. But it's more money in my pocket at the end of the day!
We have a great cast, and I am so excited to perform these shows with them! I think it is going to be a great contract with (hopefully) no drama! We will be getting picked up tomorrow at the ass crack of dawn, flying to Puerto Rico, and getting right onto the ship! Wish me luck!!
