12 Dec Drama games and looking ahead to 2018
Here is this week’s drama entry. We did quite a lot so I may not include everything we did.
We had no visitors and those not there were Ems, Luke Tye, Pip and Jenni.
We started in the morning with Brandon telling us all that Emily (volunteer) will be taking the morning session, as Andrea and himself will be busy.
Richard Watson then read one of his poems he has written down in a book. It was about how much he enjoys dancing with The Freewheelers; he also enjoys singing.
Zena was in a performance at The Grange Centre in Bookham where she lives; Dan was in it too. Soufyan saw The Rat Pack Tribute Show near Basingstoke(?). I think he enjoyed it.
Earlier on Brandon said December 18th is the last session before we break up for Christmas. Also it is his birthday and I think there will be a performance of a show called Bugsy, based on Bugsy Malone, the film made in the eighties with children in the cast, by film maker Alan Parker.
I then told everyone of when Sam, Sonas, Stephen and I plus others went to see Soul Legends on Saturday night, and we all liked it.
Then Emily took over. We started with a warm up, then drama games – one of which was someone being Basil Fawlty of Fawlty Towers, trying to guess the quirks given to the other people. I was Basil, Terri was Sybil (the wife of Basil) and Zena was Manuel (the Spanish waiter who was not very able). I managed to guess everyone’s quirks correctly; we then did another.
In the afternoon we got together with Brandon and Freewheeler member Nick Walenski. They said would be co-directing The Freewheelers’ next production – probably sometime in 2018, I am not sure when. There will be monitoring machines that make a beeping noise; this will be the soundtrack for the opening song. Later on in the play, relatives of the person in the coma will play Fawlty Towers and Only Fools And Horses to the person in the coma, to try and bring them back to life.
Also more series, and programs for children (like Play School, Blue Peter and In The Night Garden) will also be played.
We then listened to various white noise and other items on the computer, including panpipes, water running, and the noise of the ship of the Star Trek television program.
I think the session went well today and I hope the rest will think so too.
