I Can Shoot A Partridge With A Single Cartridge
Did our final performances of our 365 Plays at the Downtown library last night, to a fairly substantial crowd of both fellow 365 performers, as well as just plain folk. This was a "marathon" of all the 365 Plays done during the month of July (with a bit of spill-over into August) involving five different theatre companies, and employing a variety of performance styles from sit down, book-in-hand readings (for which the sponsors of the event had indicated a preference) all the way to fully staged pieces (which we ourselves preferred - and accomplished with a great deal more flourish IMHO than the readings).
So, that represents the last little performance activity for Annex for the next several months, until we get the new space up-and-running in early October.
Speaking of which, things are progressing, although I think everyone has hit a bit of a lull, both in terms of available energy to expend, and specific tasks that can be accomplished. We spent Sunday afternoon pulling out all the fiberglass ceiling insulation in prepping for the sound dampening that will be going up (hopefully soon). It was messy work, complicated of course by the fact that everyone was wearing layers of protective clothing, filter masks & goggles in an attempt to not breath in too much of the nasty, nasty fibers, and there are now about forty industrial sized garbage bags full of the stuff that will need to be taken to the dump, but it was probably the last of the really super-aweful jobs that Had To Be Done.
In reality, we could probably continue to clean the place until Domesday, but it's a bit futile in light of all the destruction and construction that's going to occur in the near future. Still, I personally would love to see the gross carpeting disappear sometime soon, although again replacing it will probably be one of the last things on our to-do list, after all the dust settles.
It's going to be a fun couple of months, ya' sure ya' betcha'.
