It was the first time all the actors, musicians, and production crew met each other. It was the first time the new script was read aloud from beginning to end. It was the first time we heard the voices and instruments of our band, Poonkinney Antique, formed just for the Museum Road Show. These folks are wonderfully talented with multiple instruments and sound amazing. Even though everyone was in rehearsal mode, we all clapped after their first song.
The proscenium arch, with last year's signs, is now set up in the Museum's Tall Gallery, because the ceiling in the Wonacott Room is just a few inches too low. We hope people will excuse the instrusion into gallery space for a peek at the frame for our show. Just three full weekends of rehearsals and the show begins on April 7th in Willits.
