THE TENT! THE TENT! THE TENT! THE TENT! THE TENT! THE TENT! THE TENT!
The tent was pitched today at approximately 2:00 pm at CAMH! After a mother's day dinner, and a brief stop over to witness the Tamil protest (humbling and overwhelming) I zipped up to Queen and Ossington to bear witness to OUR TENT. IT'S THERE!!!
I met Shema (sp?) who was the SECURITY GUARD and he let me go inside.
HOLY CRAP. HOLY CRAP. HOLY CRAP.
I got inside and I just walked around and giggled with glee.
I couldn't believe it. It's a tent. ITS A TENT. WE ARE DOING OUR SHOW IN A TENT!
I'm not sure why, but it hadn't occured to me that being in a tent is NOTHING LIKE BEING IN A THEATRE. It was so incredible to get to go in there before the stage and lighting rigs went up. Amazing to feel the power of a tent.
Tomorrow, myself and the entire choir will be in the tent in the evening, and starting Tuesday morning, we will be rehearsing there all day every day all the time yes. yes. yes.
THE BOOK OF JUDITH IS COMING, AND THERE'S NOTHING THAT WILL GET IN ITS WAY! (knock on wood!)
