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..
The beauty of watching the cast is watching them develop chemistry among one another and character with themselves. For many the challenge of becoming a character invokes an understanding of knowing the frustrations and attitude of the character. For the most part, utilizing parts of ones life can be the best motivation like work and how it plays an intricate part to your everyday you can feel the frustration and pains it can cause to push forward into a role..
Saturday was a day of fire as cast members showed that they can bring it for rehearsal. It was a little different as I took a step back and formally introduced them to Britney who is the co director on the set. Although the setup was different because it being in a house instead of an actual hall it did prove to be both helpful as the separation of space gave members two coaches to work with on full scenes as well and the other the development of character. I must say it has been a case of trial and error but they have shown that they are willing to take on the challenge and show the world what talents they have and for me it’s worth the site in growth and obstacle as we prove talent stands strong in everyone.
Friday was a day of chaos in the evening as I made my way to meet up with Kris at the Greyhound station in town. Now it wasn’t the waiting but the chaos that happened while there that amazed me. Already her bus was late as it’s arrival was slated for 6oclock and with time ticking many people gathered to leave for the big apple. The line was complete madness as people began getting angry and it started to show in body language and then two men got into a fist fight over space. Needless to say this showed me just how unprepared greyhound security truly are for situations but great for picking up a check.
When Kris arrived at7:30 she told me about a man that couldn’t keep still, and a woman that couldn’t keep her dog quiet, talk about a ride from hell. Well we finally made it on our way to the fringe as gatherings of people were out and about for first Friday gatherings all over Old City. When we got there the buildup of people was big but I knew she was a little exhausted so we went straight for the programs and began flipping through the pages. Page after page we flipped and it seemed like a lifetime and then we saw it the Runboyrun ad and that made our day that we had to share the picture to the world…so here we are all we made it..
