Honk Chronicles, Conclusion

Day 10: Rehearsal in the morning, and the first of two shows at night.

There really aren't any funny stories about the last day, but since we've been weighing you down with daily reports, we may as well finish it up.

Between the morning rehearsal and the evening show, I print out 23 of the pictures I've snapped during the two weeks of rehearsal and arrange them in a display of rehearsal pics from day one to this morning.

It is interesting what happens to a show the moment an audience arrives. Certain children whom we could not get to speak up, were now speaking in bold stage voices. Certain children remembered their cues at last. The show comes together in whatever state of preparation it's in.

There is another show tonight, but the long rehearsals and the race against the clock are over. Whatever the show looks like, the kids are happy with their work and going away with good memories.

You know, that's really what it's all about.
