What we did
Today was a very big day! We started off with our usual morning meeting where we checked-in and scheduled our day. Our morning rehearsal block started out by running a brief fight moment in a clown scene. We then moved into some blade training with the Neapolitans (how DO you hold a dagger?) while the clowns worked 2.2. Then some actors worked on the music in the Masque while Miranda and Ferdinand took the stage to work intimacy. After a break the Company came back together to work 3.3 followed by 4.1.
After lunch, we had committee time! The campers were able to check-in with their mentors and finish up their committee work. Among other things this included last touches to costumes, figuring out a complicated prop maneuver and stage dressing, running music and the storm, and so much more.
Dinner was followed by our dress rehearsal!
