What we did
After our morning warm-up we circled up and did some notes! Even though our run yesterday was amazing and we’re very proud, there are always things that can be worked on or cleaned up! After our mid-rehearsal break we had our clowning expert Aubrey Whitlock in to work with Cloten, practiced some villainy, and then we did a cue to cue so we could clarify exits and entrances for everyone.
Quick and Quotable
- ”You’re ne’er killed Imogen ‘til now” -spoken by Pisanio during a moment of high intensity!
- “Do you need a gallant to flirt with?” Wren to Casey (Cloten), to which Emily responded “I mean, it never hurts”
- “Are you vibing and chilling? That’s intimacy work” -myself and Austen Bell
The general consensus today during our check-in was that everyone is pretty tired and very proud- this was to be expected. Lots of yawning and stretching from all parties today. Having Aubrey in was definitely exciting for the cast, because she always creates laughter in the space. We only have a few rehearsals left before our final performance festival, and I can’t wait to see how the show transforms again in just a few days.
(For those who read my wonderful coworker Eli’s recap yesterday and want to see something similar from me, I will do my best to write a sonnet for you all before our time together is over!)
