Day 4 of Rehearsals...

Woke up this morning with a sore throat because I did so much singing yesterday. We pretty much covered everything I sing in the show including those hard-to-learn harmonies.

So, today I am drinking honey and lemon tea all day. Apparently, it's great for the voice, but it tastes pretty foul.

Today we're mostly rehearsing the dance numbers, one of which we started trying to learn last night.  I love doing the dance rehearsals, as Scott (the choreographer) is so enthusiastic, he gets carried away with the dance moves and we just stand there laughing (while secretly thinking, "How am I doing to do THAT dance step...?")!

Anyway, off for lunch now, although it's only slimming soup for me as again this year I am wearing very short hot-pants, and I want to look good, so here's hoping!

Speak soon,
Julie
