Let’s Get Ready to…Solve Another Crime. This week opens Murder with Mummies, and it’s gonna be a killer show.
This is Jamie Williams first time directing with R-ACT, and she’s loved every minute of it. The entire cast and crew put in some long hours and is just about ready for opening night on Friday, October 3rd. Let’s find out what’s been happening:
One of Jamie’s favorite parts of rehearsal was practicing the interrogation scene. The cast has been anticipating audience members’ questions, but we’re depending on you to get creative. The cast has certainly come up with some unique questions and answers to test themselves already, though. “The improv is admirable and can be quite comical.” Do you have what it takes to question this cast?
Now it wouldn’t be a good show without some plot twists and unique character personalities, but don’t be fooled. We’ll get to bottom of this crime together. Jamie warns, though, to be prepared for the murderer’s arrest. ‘Everyone has good reason to kill Gerald Schwartzberg, but you’ll need to pay attention. It’s truly about the twist.’
Finally, creating the scenes made for some fun times too. “Collecting and making the Egyptian props was the most fun. There were so many opportunities to be creative.” She also wants to give a shout out to Tyree Patrick for creating the hieroglyphics and artwork.
Well, that’s the first sneak peak of R-ACT’s latest production. Check back for some more fun facts from the cast and crew in the ‘Behind the Scenes’ blog tomorrow. In the meantime, get your ticket online through our website and enjoy the picture from the show by Tarquinio Photo.
