Hard Knock Life Notes:
Annie At the top of the number take a big step forward on the first “It’s a Hard Knock”
Lily J Breakup the fight between Quinn and Alessandra at beginning
After “Row we Hoe” Harper and Annie should share center
“Empty Bellies” Lily J be standing, please
Annie: Don’t it…Howling out to the audience
Alessandra during this part can you scrub the back wall while standing? Sit after solo
Lily J and Wren “putting up a fight” to the audience more
Quinn Throw towel into the bucket by Annie
Annie try ringing out the towel during “ dreams at night.. creepy”
ALL During this whole sit and scrub section please be listening and agreeing and scrub only a little
Annie second “empty belly” Harper is at the center you move to the center top step on “rotten smelly life”
Lily P on “whos he”? Run to the other side and cry with Wren
Harper, Gigi and Annie counter block you should be just left of center
Quinn the part where you push the cart is your time to be Ms. Hannigan DO IT BIGGER! Can you grab a green rag from basket and do something funky with hair for this part?
Harper Gigi Annie again be left of center during beating up Gigi
Harper dont wait for Wren on SR play with laundry or something
Harper dont go so fair and look back at Wren not audience
Alessandra do not sit and scrub after laughing at Harper stay standing until the end
ALL the sitting at the end is not right. You should be collapsing because you are exhausted but on beat and fast.
Its a Hard Knock Life, Its a Hard Knock Life … END
1st group Harper/ Gigi
ALL: The whole energy needs to be turned UP! You should always be doing something but with a purpose, don't just throw your rag cause you are bored. Throw it cause you’re sick of cleaning.
Please look over the singing as we are falling flat in some areas and are missing Annie Solos. Annie I gotta hear YOU!
I LOVE THIS NUMBER AND YOU GUYS CAN ROCK IT IF YOU STUDY.
See ya next Wednesday!
Next…. Never Fully Dressed :)
