Quote of the Day

“I don’t want you to be like marionette meat puppets.”

-KP Powell

KP encouraged the campers to make choices in their acting. He doesn’t want to lead them like his puppets. As the campers have learned, it’s okay to make a mistake in acting. By trying something in the rehearsal room and failing to produce the desired result, actors get closer to finding the choices they want to make for their characters.
