Rehearsal Schedule

Hi Everyone,

Here is our tenative rehearsal schedule. We're going to be spending a lot of time together for the next few weeks. I can't wait to really dig in get on with the show. We don't have a lot of rehearsal time so please do your best to come on time and prepared to work. I hope you are all working on your lines at home. It helps to tape yourself reading the script and listen to over and over.

I also recommend each one of you doing a character analysis. Really decide who your character is. I've attached an exercise we've used in my theater class that will help you. Fill it out, print it and bring it to rehearsal to help you in your acting. This is especially important for our townspeople. We need all kinds of distinct characters in the town. Who are you?

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

See you at rehearsal,
Mrs. V
