I have a couple of posts that I've been meaning to write but since the first week of January, I've been going to rehearsals for the Pittsburgh Savoyard's production of Gilbert and Sullivan's "The Pirates of Penzance". Which is surprisingly hard to learn and sing. The pace of the music is quite daunting. It's where the song, "I am the very Model of a Modern Major General" comes from. Couple that with having to coordinate movement (aka dance) to the songs and you've got some serious memorization demands and rehearsals. Judging from the early vocal rehearsals it's going to be a great show music wise and judging from the staging early rehearsals it will be a very fun show! So I may not get to posting much before March.

Also, things are gearing up for the musical that we perform at Confluence every year so that is taking bits of my free time as well.

I discovered tonight that I work with a bunch of gamer geeks. At one point we were starting to rehearse a scene from the point where Mabel sings/says "Hold Monsters!" and when the director said, "Okay, after Mabel does "Hold Monsters" . . ."

I asked, "Hold Monsters? That's a cleric spell, right?" and about 4 women in the ensemble laughed and someone had to explain it to the young man playing Frederick.

It's a fun group, though.
