hopefully the weather will be better than it was on the day of auditions!

onto the next project!

I have officially made it into OSU's production of Macbeth! rehearsals start next month and there are ten shows that will run this august! I am so excited for this opportunity and I can't wait to get started. there are so many talented people in the cast and I know I will learn a lot from being able to act with them. also, I know that doing Shakespeare will certainly challenge me, and I know that this production will give me huge opportunities to grow and learn as an actor.

our amazing director has started a blog about the show! right now it has the production concept and where she got all of the inspiration for the show. check it out!

why can't we just take it with us?

another wonderful show has come to a close. I can't say I feel much different than I did with the last show. I'm sad it's over, and very much looking forward to my next project. I do want to share a few images from the show however! one of the lovely ladies in our cast is an avid photographer, and spent a lot of time during the rehearsal process and backstage shooting the cast. on closing night, everyone received a rose with a portrait and note attached. it was a beautiful gift, and i really wanted to share some of her images because they are gorgeous. enjoy!

lastly, I had auditions for the next production here on campus yesterday. Shakespeare's "Macbeth" will run over the summer and call backs are tonight! I should find out whether I made it by tonight or tomorrow!

opening weekend YCTIWY

opening weekend is over and we're preparing for another three shows this weekend! I'm supposed to be at a pick up rehearsal right now, but unfortunately due to a power outage we were not able to rehearse. but that does mean I have a little extra time, which includes updating my blog!

the first three shows went very very well. every night there was new energy from the audience, and new mishaps on stage (in the final moments of saturday's show the couch was broken!) hopefully this weekend's shows will be even better. we've definitely taken strides forward, and it's been very fun to see everyone growing and learning from each other.

here are a couple rehearsal photos, taken for the newspaper and our archives:

here is the official poster for our production. these are posted all over school as well as around the community!

like I said, we have three more performances, then I am auditioning for another show on sunday. also, I have a scene from Sheridan's "The Rivals" that I am performing in acting class this friday. it has certainly been a big week for memorizing! more to come :)
