03 Sep Welcome back after the summer
Today was the first drama session after the summer break. We had no visitors, and those not there were Soufyan, Sonas and Nick.
We started with Brandon welcoming everyone back. Then Brandon told us we will be rehearsing Lord Upright and Grovling later today, ready for filming at Starborough Manor in Edenbridge, Kent, on Wednesday and Thursday of this week. Brandon then talked about what we might do in the future: he mentioned The Musicians play, and that Rachel Barnett was to come back to us. Then Viv wanted to know why we liked working with Rachel. We also said what topics or subjects we might like to do; these included mime, acting, working behind the scenes, plus others.
Then we had a warm up, followed by the acting game ‘scenes at a bus stop’.
Then we had lunch; during the break we changed into our costumes for Upright and Grovling and had our pictures taken by Brandon.
In the afternoon we rehearsed various scenes from Upright and Grovling in our costumes, then got changed back to our usual clothes.
I really enjoyed it today and I hope the rest would agree.
