Today’s Date: July 24th 2018

Show Title: Twelfth Night

Director: Emily Heugatter

Assistant Directors: Alexandra Stroud and Riley Turner

Production Intern: Georgia Fowler

Rehearsal Room: Grafton

What we did: We began rehearsal with our daily warm-up followed by a fight call. Then director Emily, RDA Alex, and RDA Riley each took groups to do scene work. Those not in a group paired up and worked on lines together.

Quick and Quotable:

  • From the play: “Away before me, to sweet beds of flowers. Love thoughts lie rich, when canopied with bowers.”
  • From the cast: “You’re like Tony Stark. You’re not a jerk, but you’re a jerk.” (About how Orsino carries himself)
  • From the cast: “I feel like I’m Regina George from Mean Girls.” (Austin about Orsino)

Production Insights: The cast really picked up their energy today during scene work. We’re not a show speed, by any means, but we are much closer to the pace we need than we were even yesterday. The campers, even when not working with Emily, Riley or Alex, were busy learning lines or running scenes by themselves. I was really impressed by the energy and focused displayed by everyone today.

We have a second rehearsal tonight in Blackfriar’s, so be ready for another blog post from me later today!
