The Tuesday night play rehearsal went well. Despite the fact Detective Shepherd went with his wife to teach yoga in Seward, and despite the fact that Miss Thurston the P.O. took a motorcycle trip with her sweetie in South Dakota, Alex (Reason) and Brandon (Vince) did exceptionally well.
Alex, who has won an award for his acting, has a ton of lines, but he is plowing through them with style. Brandon, who has never acted in life, impressed me. Alex (16) and Brandon (14) have a good chemistry, and despite their age differences, they are going to convince the audience that they are truly good friends, much like Reason and Vince.
Alex called tonight to say he had found Boone! So tomorrow night I should have all five cast members at rehearsal!
Denny and Cheri, of course, are the supporting characters, though they deliver more lines as Detective Shepherd and Miss Thurston. They are the glue that holds this thing together, and both are doing an exceptional job.
