As I have mentioned before my next show starts rehearsal on this Sunday.

Yes, that is Super Bowl Sunday.

Yes, that is the Super Bowl that my hometown team, the Green Bay Packers, are playing in.  (Go Packers!)

Ever since they won the NFC championship I've been wondering how to approach this.  I enjoy watching the Super Bowl all the time but to possibly miss it when my team is playing was making me cranky.

I decided to play it somewhat cool.  I got copied into a thread of emails about scheduling this past Monday once I was on contract.  At that point the current Sunday rehearsal plan was noon - 9:30p with a dinner break (!).  I answered the one union question and put one additional item into the mix that everyone else always forgets and that was it, I decided to bring up the game in the next go around of questions and responses.  I figured I could at least get the dinner break to coincide with the second half.

Then it happened.  The director responded to the emails with answers to several of the questions that only she would know.  And she asked "is it possible to move rehearsal so it's not on top of the Super Bowl?"  Apparently the author is a huge football fan.  I jumped right in, suggesting the schedule I had been hoping for from the beginning.  It got tweaked a bit for logistics but in the end I'll be rehearsing from 10:30a-3:30p on Sunday.  Which here on the west coast should get me home just around kickoff.

Score!

That is AWESOME! I actually have Sunday off (my second in a row) which never happens because I always work Sundays, and I have for almost 4 years. I even worked Sundays when I was at my theater in Boston. I know the Packers beat us, by I am rooting for them to win it. My hate of the Steelers is that strong.

Good luck, and I'm glad you will get to see it!

I am so grateful it worked out, and that it wasn't just me who wanted to watch the game.

I'm glad to know there are lots of folks in the Packers' corner. Woot!

Congrats on the win tonight!! I'm pretty happy so I'm sure you're ecstatic.

OMG I am beyond thrilled. I yelled, I paced, I even teared up a little right at the end.

That is awesome. lol... Way to go!!! I'm glad you'll get to see your boys playing for the big prize. I know I'd be cranky if my boys were in the Big Dance and I didn't get to see it. :-)

Enjoy yourself!!!

Yeah, if Oakland gets into the Super Bowl I'm guessing you'd shut down everything for the entire weekend and just live in black and silver. Heh.

I am looking forward to the game.

If Oakland gets to the Super Bowl in my lifetime, I may just die of a freaking heart attack right then and there. :-p

YAY, I'm glad that worked out.

I know, right? I'm thrilled that the rehearsal schedule fell out this way.

GO PACK, GO!!!

I'm so glad you get to see the game!!!

Me too!!

My mom got sent home from her office this morning because she came in not wearing green and gold, they told her to change. I kind of wish I were home in WI it would be fun.
