Hi, and welcome to my Jesus Christ Superstar blog. I’m Ali Temple and for the next 9 weeks I’ll be keeping you posted with all that’s happening here, as well as giving you a little peek into what life’s like in the creation, rehearsal and touring of one of the biggest and most anticipated shows this year.
So before we go any further I should let you know who I am and what I do. Well as I said I’m Ali, I’m 30 years old with coming on 10 years professional experience. During that time I have performed all over the world in literally every genre of the performance industry as a dancer, acrobat and circus artist. Now I find myself among this hugely talented cast here in the world of musical theatre.
As we enter week 2 of rehearsals it has already been a whirlwind of activity. Starting with being introduced to our fellow cast members as well as our production team of technicians, administrators, producers, band members, choreographers and directors. Without all of whom I wouldn’t have anything to do! We’ve also sung… a lot, learned a huge amount of choreography, plotted scenes, then run and run, and run them some more. If I was to break down all of the last week I’d be here forever!
Whether you are a loyal fan of JCS or planning on catching it for the first time I’m convinced there will be moments to quench everyones theatrical desires. A visual and audio feast I’m hugely excited to be a part of. I look forward to sharing this with you and hope to give you a genuine, honest and insightful peek into what goes on behind the scenes on tour, both off and on stage. I hope you enjoy it.
Check back for regular blogs where I’ll go much more into depth. Until then…
