Do it with feeling
This week we worked to further develop our movement skills while embracing our characters’ stories and emotions. Plus, we got to meet some of our principle cast! Photos: Richard Hall
Our ensemble practiced linking movement to emotion this week. As we build our characters, their histories and their personalities, we’re also mindfully exploring ways they’ll move and travel. Photos: Richard Hall
The first script read-through
Wow! What a tremendous first script read-through rehearsal. This week we saw our principal characters and featured ensemble bring Oliver! to life. Many ears heard a booming Bumble, a snide Sowerberry and a ghastly Bill Sykes for the first time and our musical directors stacked haunting harmonies with our talented singers. Here’s a sneak peek from the debut rendition of ‘That’s your Funeral’. Photos: Emily Norton
There’s something about singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to a stranger with the utmost sincerity that makes you truly tackle that huge acting killer – self-consciousness! By the time you’ve added absurd movements to every beat of the song, wiggled and waved at them too, you’re away. Here’s a snapshot of your hard work at this week’s rehearsal. Photos by Richard Hall
The Tableau Test
The Knights Theatre became the cold, merciless streets of Victorian London when our actors were tasked with performing a Dickensian moment in time. Beggars, brawlers and even the Old Bill made an appearance.
