Before we started, we were shown the "bog machine" - a platform with balsa wood cat tails affixed to it, which rolls onto the stage and then pulls a swan along with it. It was quite clever, and the man who made it was obviously proud - he surely deserved the round of applause we gave him.
I found out that final dress rehearsal is only $10, so if you're interested in coming to see the show but put off by the ticket price (the non-student rate is $22 for most performances), pen in Thursday, July 14th as your good night to go. It'll start at 7, I think. Let me know if you're interested and I'll make sure to get you the details.
And I just have to say: I have been dubbed an honorary baritone after singing what I call the potato song ("Am I Alone and Unobserved," aka "And everyone will say/As you walk your flow'ry way/If he's content with a vegetable love which would certainly not suit me ...", whatever it is called) at my birthday party.
