London 2012 Olympics!

2 auditions, 8 Rehearsals, 51 rehearsal hours = THE biggest show I will probably ever perform in.

Although the BBC failed to film the majoirty of our performance the experience of being in the stadium on the finale of such an incredible event will be something I will NEVER forget. I'm ashamed to say I've never really watch an Olympic games, I certainly have never seen an opening or closing ceremony - that's right, not even Beijing! But the London Olympics totally consumed me! I found myself watch the canoeing  the two trap shooting, the show jumping, the dressage (I nearly cried when we won Gold :/) There were so many sporting events that I would never normally watch; I spent and hour and 40 minuets captivated by the Triathlon and shouting at my TV for the Brownlee brothers. It was all a bit much. It's been two months since the closing ceremony, which is why I've chosen it to start a series of posts about my Olympics experience. Rather than an epic post with far too many pictures I'm going to break it down to rehearsal, performance build up, the show itself and the after party.
