Monday's rehersal was great, I am starting to get the hang of this dancing thing (in the dance-warm up session) It's nothing majorly difficult, but my co-ordination is getting a lot better.

We just sang through the Who's music, concentrating on facial expression awareness, using our faces, and smiling whilst whoing.

We moved onto the opening, ran that (a bit pants) and into the jungle of nool (possibly a bit more pants) and then we set Whoville, I am a girl-group who! Possibly even a cheerleader who, which is cool, but my girl group consisits of one other girl, and she wasn't there last night!

Went to see Starlight Express (again, 3rd time) at the Liverpool Empire, excellent show, some changes to cast were very good (Poppa,Pearl, Flat Top and Dustin) some were not as good (Rusty,Dinah,Buffy,Ashley) and there were some cast members who were the same as last time (Greaseball and Elecktra)
The set was a lot simpler this time around, no "runway" out into the stalls, and only 2 moveable ramps which were used to great effect to creat small sets.
The Singing was great, apart from Pearl and Rusty not going for some of the Big Belty parts of songs. (the girls weren't vocally as strong as the last tour)
No-one fell over, although Pearl did stumble a little at the start of "Only He" which threw her a little off her next line, but she recovered very well.
All in all an excellent show, STEX is a show which I could watch again and again, it's so entertaining, if a little lacking in plot/character development!
It really captured the audience, who were great, and on average very young!
