We had a really fun subscriber/donor event on Sunday. The theater was swept completely bare and everyone who walked in said, “Whoa! I’ve never seen the space empty before.” It was a fleeting state, so don’t rush over to see. Monday morning began the load-in for The Last of the Dragons. The season marches on!
As usual, we had wine and cheese and other yummies. We had 30 subscriber/donors attend and we got an unusually intimate peek at the rehearsal process of Mrs. Caliban. Ann had the cast performing physical improvisations in pairs, based on three words they’d chosen that characterize their stage relationships. This was totally fascinating and great fun. The audience got to guess the relationship words the actors had chosen and the guesses were dead on, which tickled all involved. Then we heard some scenes read and a lengthy discussion followed. Many thanks to cast members Peter, Brenda, Jenifer, Dan and Monica, as well as Frances, Ann and Stephanie for allowing us to look inside their process.
