Tobiah’s Fish

Meet Tobiah’s fish.

When the young man went down to wash his feet in the Tigris River, a large fish leaped out of the water and tried to swallow his foot. He shouted in alarm. But the angel said to the young man, “Grab the fish and hold on to it!” He seized the fish and hauled it up on dry land. The angel then told him: “Slit the fish open and take out its gall, heart, and liver, and keep them with you; but throw away the other entrails. Its gall, heart, and liver are useful for medicine.” After Tobiah had slit the fish open, he put aside the gall, heart, and liver. Then he roasted and ate part of the fish; the rest he salted and kept for the journey. (Tobit 6:3-6)

Twenty-seven days till showtime. Things are pulling together. I’ll have the brilliant poster up here and on Facebook tomorrow.

Last week we began to piece together the minimal dialogue and some songs. Tonight we ran the finale in place. Tomorrow we start putting together a significant chunk of Act One. Fun, fun, fun.

    The music is great – I crashed the practice last night (at Todd’s invitation). I won’t be here for the production but it should be great! If you’re near Ames, plan to attend.
