Drive time to Muroran from my home (including conbini stops, changing cars and getting gas in Pippu, and pickups in Asahikawa and Takikawa): 7 hours
Rehearsal Time (all singing, all dancing, all the time): 12 hours
Return Time to Asahikawa: 4.5 hours
Throw in a couple of hours at the onsen, an enkai at a yakinikku restaurant named after the first Western ship to land in Muroran harbour, much revelling and carousing, watching of movies, waking to the dulcet tones of PeeWees Playhouse and a little sleeping and you have my musical weekend. It was the busiest one so far I think, but we accomplished a lot.
My Barbie-pink "Take off Your Mink" tear-away ball gown was all ready to go, so that makes everything worthwhile.
