So the great thing about Spring Awakening is that we have a very young cast. They range from 16 to 24. We' ve got them to a certain standard now, in the rehearsal room we got them to a fantastic standard. Now it is my job to maintain that standard with them. So we talk to them a lot about their lifestyles, and just you know, how much they should be going out or whatever. And doing long warm-ups with them every day, talking about what they should eat or drink just to keep vocally healthy. On a day to day basis, I would do probably a half an hour warm-up with them, which usually consists of them doing a quarter of an hour physical warm-up, I will do quarter of an hour vocal warm-up and then we usually do about another 15 minutes of individual work; anything that I want to just look at from the night before then we might just go over. I mean there are some very, very complex vocal harmonies in Spring Awakening. So we need to just keep them all in the pocket.
