Backstage and 'sober' nites
Backstage - on the show day, the backstage management was in total control, compared to the day before, when we had the full dress rehearsal, the organizer didn't put on the lights there, so twas dark unless the front stage lights are bright enough to lit the backstage, chaotic. Call time was at 1800hrs sharp, everybody starts to get ready, although the show time is at 2100hrs. At these hour, some begins to panic, some begins to cry, some just had to go to the loo several times hehe...nevertheless the show went really well. Told them to have fun when they perform, and they did!
After the show ends, i hafta run to the ktv to get there in time according to the time i booked ( dont ask why - last minute thingy ), so i missed the moment when they hug and cry right after the performance, at the backstage. I waited for the dancers and actors to come ( i was singing alone in that large room for 40 minutes hehehe), then as they came, hug hug, then i rushed back to berjaya, to pickup the props. As all the performers were already in the room, we, crews came a bit later after clearing things up. That nite, the director gave a sort-of award to the performers for best female/male supporting/main actor/dancers. And some tokens of appreciation for the production crews. As time goes by to the wee hours..one by one of them hafta go off, gonna miss them so dearly, all hugs and kisses. Towards the end, only the crews left..melalak sampai tak ingat hehheeheh till the place closed at 0300hrs.
..twas a nite to remember mister...( tried to recall the long word that i wrote ;-))
