How many of you know what your Significant Other does at work? I have the rare opportunity to sit in on a rehearsal for The Amateur premier of ‘Made in Dagenham’. There is some tight harmony and amazing moves. But what I always love is seeing Tim, my husband, directing the music. He draws out beautiful harmonies and supports the performers where needed; skillfully driving a fine line between moving a number on and ironing out flaws. The brilliant thing with The West Bromwich Operatic Society is that they pick things up so quickly it is never boring at a rehearsal.
I have an ulterior motive for this post; my 9 year old daughter is having her first experience of acting on a big stage. She has done panto and been Gretyl in a production of Sound of Music, but her 15 minutes in Dagenham will be on the Grand Theatre stage in Wolverhampton. She is practising her small part as much as the chorus are doing with their music.
…sometimes it’s nice to see what your Other Half gets up to at work…
