Orchestra pit

I’ve been playing this musical for the last couple of days and I just arrived home after the Premier! (Well, this is a scheduled post, so it was yesterday when it’s posted).

I’ve mentioned it before in this blog, but I’ll say it again anyway. We’re doing High School Musical Live On Stage and it’s awesome! I’m in the orchestra playing the saxophone, but even though that doesn’t mean I get to be Sharpay and sing “Bob to the top” it’s perfect!

We’ve basically been chilling in the orchestra pit since friday and it’s absolutely the best. Or.. Chilling backstage is actually the best. We’ve been playing this game where you have to guess a scenario (mostly weird murders) by asking a ton of questions. Some of them make sense.. Most of them don’t. There’s one where Romeo and Juliet are dead and it turns out they’re fish in this scenario. Obviously we had to give up on that one.

The great thing about being in the orchestra is that when they in the speaker call “60 minutes” we can keep chilling, while actors and dancers have to start getting ready for the show. We have another 30 minutes to finish our game (and, today, our pizza as well) and then we’re even in great time to get settled and tuned.

We’re a small band this year and I really like the space we have in the pit. Last year we were 4 saxophones alone, this year there’s only me. Then there’s a trumpet and a flute as well. And of course a couple of violins and then the actual band. We could have a party in the pit with all the space we have.

It’s such a shame we’re already done wednesday.
