More Do Not Disturb

More Do Not Disturb

Dear All  
Here is my usual drama blog for today.  Today we had no visitors, and those not there were Rachael, Ems, Matt Seaby, Luke H, Pip (volunteer) and Annette (volunteer).
We started in the morning with a warm up session  with Richard Watson.   Then we split up; some went in the main room to rehearse the Medical scene (and other scenes) of Do Not Disturb, with Andrea. 
Others, including the family of Robbie (when in a coma), were in the Middle Room with Freewheelers volunteer Alison. We were Terri as the Mum;  Zena, the girlfriend; Jamie, the brother; and myself the father. We were also joined by Sam Keelan as Beryl (Cybil from Fawlty Towers), and Nick Russell as Cyril (Basil from Fawlty Towers).   
Then we got back together to rehearse Do Not Disturb from the start to page 9, Medical Terms Song.  Then was lunch.  
In the afternoon we continued with rehearsals for Do Not Disturb, from Page 9 to the end.  Some scenes needed doing several times, as there were changes to the script.   
There was a new script with yellow marker pen writing on, instead of green for the previous copies. 
After we had finished Brandon said we all did quite well, considering the new scripts, although some of us still needed to rehearse some of our lines.  We all understood this. 
In conclusion, I think we all did quite well, and I hope everyone else who was there will think so too!
