It's been a long road for the cast and crew, but we've reached that magical stage in Tech Week, tonight is the final dress rehearsal. That final moment where everything just comes together. We are so thankful that the cast had one last moment to spare to tell us just a little bit more about the show and themselves.
Tell us something that you are particularly excited about the show coming together.
Pat Noren Enderson: I’m excited for Act III, it promises to run the gamut of emotions.
Linda Monroe: I'm excited just watching the whole production come together and the way the actors have each others' backs!
Nickie McClure: I am just excited for being in my costume and having the sound, lighting and just performing for a live audience.
Daniel Coleman: Honestly, I am excited about everything. I cannot wait until opening.
Kelly Ahlman: I am so excited to see how each relationship in the show will finally play out together. This has been such an incredible journey for all of the characters. I am personally thrilled for the audience to experience the different connections that Joe and Bette carry through to the end.
Why do you choose to spend time at Lyric Arts?
Pat Noren Enderson: I love that Lyric Arts is a professional theater in a small town that encourages local actors and contributes to the community.
Linda Monroe: Lyric Arts has become almost a second home to me. I've met so many great people here, and being around this atmosphere has brought me out of my "shell" and given me self-confidence.
Nickie McClure: I LOVE the shows they choose to put on. Everyone is always organized and prepared!
Tim Como: Why Lyric Arts? I had so many great things about this place, I had to come and check it out for myself. I'm glad I did.
Daniel Coleman: Lyric Arts is a great organization to be a part of, it's a team first environment and each person I've met strives to excel expectations. I am thankful for the opportunity.
Kelly Ahlman: Although my drive to Anoka is quite long, the experiences I have had make it completely worth it. This is my first show with Lyric Arts, and from the audition process to now during tech week, it has been a time for fun with the cast and staff, and a time for difficult challenges to be worked through artistically and personally. I have learned something from each of my fellow actors, and so much from our brilliant director and stage manager.
