Fans of the NBC hit show 'Smash' will have to wait another week to get their musical drama fix. After a two-hour season premier last week, this week's time slot was filled by the President's State of the Union address.

But despite that, we still have your 'Behind the Scenes' look at putting together a hit musical right here. From the Broadway stage to the auditorium stage at Moline High School, getting to opening night is all about surviving rehearsals.

Watching and listening to the student cast of Moline High's upcoming production of 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat' during rehearsal this week, it is hard to believe this was only the second time they've gone through each song.

Rehearsals only started last week.

In just a matter of days, it's amazing how far the cast has come.

"I think everyone's starting to get it, and it's starting to click, so that hopefully the next time we run through this it will go a lot more smoothly," said Moline High School senior Allison Condit, who is playing one of the narrators in the show.

"I'm outlining. We haven't gotten into details yet," said Choreographer Director Cindy May.

"We've blocked through most of the first act of the show. But there's much to do yet," she said.

And there's very little time in which to do it.

The show runs March 14-16, leaving just six weeks from open auditions to opening night.

There is no choice but to steam ahead - putting everything together at breakneck speed.

"It's lot's of stress for us, but I don't think the audience necessarily gets that unless they're involved in the show," Condit said.

"We don't want them to notice," she added. "We want them to think, 'Wow, they've been doing this for months, it's so flawless and perfected.'"

That's what these rehearsals are all about - practice makes perfect.

"At the very end, all of the pieces do come together," May explained. "And we see it happen that way every year."
