This is it, the night of nights
No more rehearsing and nursing a part
We know every part by heart
Overture, curtains, lights
This is it, you'll hit the heights
And oh what heights we'll hit
On with the show this is it.
Well, this is it for our young performers -- Opening Night! We have worked for nearly three months and now we will see if our hard work pays off!
Some of you will remember the Theme Song to the Bugs Bunny Show. I always think of this song on opening nights. We hope we have learned each part by heart and we hope we will hit new heights with our acting and singing and dancing. And we especially hope that the technical details will all be worked out!
In amateur productions, it is always the technical details that make or break the show. We wonder if the lights will function properly and hope that the actors remember to make their marks to be in the light for their special parts. We hope that the actors will keep their body mics plugged in. We really hope that the batteries will last the entire performance and that we won't get feedback. We really want all of the actors to stay far enough away from the scenery so that they don't knock anything over! We pray that we will have no prop or costume malfunctions and that everybody will stay out of harm's way. We hope our technical crew is ready and on top of things. We hope that the actor's can stay focused come what may and give the best performance they can! Let's make it a great show, everyone! You can do it!
Break a leg! ----- well, not really! It's just a saying in the theater!
Tonight what heights we'll hit
On with the show this is it!
