How long does it take to create a show?

Today we’re answering the question…

Creating a new show is a very exciting part of what we do at DuffleBag. So we put a lot of thought and time into getting it just right. To get the ball rolling we spend about two weeks in a rehearsal space from morning to evening playing around with different parts of the story and characters until we shape it into a performance. During this time we figure out which roles we want our audience actors to play and which we want DuffleBag performers to play. We also get to do lots of improvising as we play around with different jokes to find the ones that are the funniest and help tell the story the best. Once we have shaped it into a 50-ish minute show we think you will love we start performing it. But even then we aren’t done! We keep playing around and improvising with each performance we do. If one joke isn’t working we might take it out and replace it with another. Or if something really funny happens out of the blue and it works, then we might throw it in permanently. So our DuffleBag shows are constantly evolving — and our fabulous audiences are a major part of that!
