Play In A Week – Day 2

Play In A Week – Day 2

Dear All,

Today was Day 2 of PIAW or Play in a Week the theme was Around The World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne adapted by Rachel Barnett.

In the morning we started with a warm up taken by Brandon.   Then was the opening song that most of the cast sing.   Next was drinks break, followed by splitting into groups. In my group – taken by volunteer Carly who is Luke Tye’s carer – I was one of the Master of Ceremonies (MC for short), the other was Oliver who lives locally and Luke was a former Policeman sent to catch Filios Fogg when he is accused of stealing. I think the rehearsal went well and even managed some lines without the script. Then we had lunch break.

In the afternoon we continued  in our groups then a quick break.  After which we all met up together to show the rest what we have been doing so far – we got up to Page 15.  We finished with a cool down.

More to follow tomorrow.
