The Get In

Today we assembled the stage for this week's performances at The Church on Rise Park. Usually, with the old stage it would take ten people two days. This morning it took four people one hour. We rehearsed this afternoon in front of a small audience. The show is coming together but slowly. As lines are learned and movements rehearsed. It'll be alright on the night etc. But the night is one rehearsal away. We are amateurs. I am reminded of a line from The White Album. John Lennon talking to Donovan on the Maharishi's roof about his mother teaching him how to play the banjo. 'An amateur practises until he gets it right. A professional practises until he can't get it wrong.' We only have to get it right. But if we don't it's alright. My mum's the prompt.
