20 May Working hard at rehearsing
Today in drama we had no visitors and everyone was there.
We started in the morning with Brandon telling us we will be rehearsing Steep Rain later. Next Brandon said that Pip will be in at 3pm to take Sonas, Luke T and Anthony O’Sullivan to Fetcham Park as they will be performing there; we will all be going in June. After that Brandon said we would also be rehearsing my play Lord Upright and Grovling later today and next week it will be all day at the Bridge Youth Club. The filming of this play will be in August or September at Pip’s house and a mansion in Edenbridge, Kent.
Brandon watched a play last week called Bullet Catch, about a magician who catches a bullet in his mouth, but unfortunately in his face instead and he dies, and then there is the court case afterwards.
Sam told us she will not be there on Tuesday as she is getting an award from Scola for helping in one of the classes; she said she was very excited about this. Sam’s Scola award will be at the Museum of London. Vince said he is leaving drama in September, as he is doing a Scola course.
Then Brandon mentioned that on Friday there is a meeting at the Grange in Bookham about Play In A Week (or PIAW for short); the actual show is sometime in July.
Next, we watched a film of Your Call. Before we saw the Your Call film Brandon said we need to film Steep Rain again.
After the Your Call film it was lunch time.
In the afternoon, we rehearsed Steep Rain with changes and finally Lord Upright and Grovling, with Dan as Lord Upright, and Stephen as Grovling. I think Sam will be Lady Upington; and Terry will be Betty, the maid. I am one of the gardeners; I wrote the play, so will be there next Monday at the Bridge Youth Club.
In conclusion I enjoyed today, and I hope the rest did as well.
