What we did
In our morning rehearsal, we went into awesome detail work through scenes 1-6. Hope, the camper playing Gower, worked with Isaac, our beatboxing champion, to develop a rhythm for every speech Gower has. Marshall worked Jules (Pericles) and developed relationships between all the other characters in the scene. Scenes were heightened and storms billowed!
Quick and Quotable
From the play
FIRST FISHERMAN: “We’ll have puddings and flapjacks, and thou shalt be welcome.”
From the director
MARSHALL: To Cleon and Dionyza: “Dionyza, you love Cleon the way we all love Dopey.”
From the cast
Gower: I AM ALL POWERFUL!
The energy and focus of the cast is bringing out so many new ideas and amazing talents. From Virginia doing a ‘whip’ dance move before her character kicks the bucket to the progression of the song and dance to the development of music. Two rehearsals today (Monday)!
