The first day of rehearsal is always the most exciting. Perhaps you’ve seen people posting on social media treating it like the first day of school. That is because, when rehearsal starts, you are at the beginning of a bonding experience. Everyone is meeting, perhaps for the first time, but certainly for the first time to work collectively on a new project.
We feel nervous because we want everyone to like us, and we want the show to be good. But instead of letting our nerves get the best of us, let’s talk about how you can handle a meet and greet with your peers.
Dress nice. Yes, it’s a rehearsal, but for the meet and greet you should try to look a little dressed up. I’m not talking formal, but first impressions are important, and if you FEEL that you look good, then everyone will sense your confidence. Bring a change of clothes though because you will be rehearsing.
Don’t say too much. Meet and Greet...
