Still not much to report here I'm afraid, we went into the park yesterday but mainly to go on the rides and see the other Stunt Show. I thought it was pretty good, they have a fantastic set and the cast were all very enthusiastic. We went into Studio 4 today to play around with some of the rigging that will be in the show. Turned out to be a bit of laugh and hopefully productive for when it's all rigged on the set rather than the rehearsal studio.
After that the cast from the other show came to the set to say hello, they're all German but all spoke good English so we chatted with them for a bit and they invited us to join them for a big Barbeque on their set later in the week. Every performer from the park is going including the costume characters and the people from the Dance show so that should be a lot of fun.
Last night Phil, Gareth, Amanda and I went to a pub about 15 minutes from here, to begin with it felt a bit awkward as it was clearly a very 'local' bar but we eventually ended up playing Knieffel (or Yahtzee as we know it). Phil says most small bars in Germany will have Dice games available to everyone. After a few round with just the 4 of us 3 German guys who had been playing opposite us asked if they could join, so we had the first unofficial Knieffel world championships, England versus Germany and one Yank fo good measure. You'll be pleased to hear the Brits won rather comprehensively :-)
We're supposed to be having an orientation tomorrow, which we assume will be listening to someone explain the rules of the park and what is expected of us as employees. Our director returns tonight so we might end up doing some more fight sequences. We were all pleased to see the set is coming along very nicely so fingers crossed we'll be rehearsing in there in the next couple of weeks.
That's all for now guys, will update later in the week :-)
