What is talent ? Talent is something that is noticed before it ever hits the stage pound is something that is noticed at a young age. When the cast saw Darryl and Kylia come in to the rehearsal room it was an instant embrace after all this was a first time seeing them since June and July show. For new members to see them or should I say to hear them in a group chat was all they knew but on this day they would get the chance to see the talent that they possess on stage.
“When you talk about a great actor, you’re not talking about Tom Cruise.”
― Lauren Bacall
Every actors wants to be noticed for a great performance but truth is many think of having a horrible moment over actually doing well first. Funny thing about getting in front of an audience is they know whats good and whats bad in your performance. As many of the cast mates took to the stage at the Cool Stories Vol 1 Fest some were as nervous as me when we walked in and saw that we were actually in NY to show what we can do. From person to person i watched as they took the time to allow the presence to seep into each performance and allow the feat to become the lead into a moment where the crowd then saw what they can do. In the end, they received the claps the cheers and the bow that all actors great and amateur want total appreciation for what they do..
As we draw closer to the play, we have picked up new members and practice is going well. Talents are putting their all into not only the words but the development of characters. In this scene Krissy Bogle is going over Movement and believe me her action and presence will be one to grab attention of the audience and that’s what talent is about making words become real before your eyes..
