First rehearsal in the performance space

January 28’s rehearsal was a special one because it was the first time we were in our performance space.

Throughout the rehearsal, the actors and lighting technicians were getting used to being in the new space.

Even though we weren’t able to run the whole show, we focused on perfecting the transitions between the scenes and the scenes themselves.  As always, the energy was high as the actors and production team all worked to improve the show to make it the best it can be.

Monday’s Lost Letters rehearsal was again all about going off book.

Compared to last week, the actors all impressively remembered most of their lines. It was a great rehearsal, and we made a lot of progress in perfecting each scene.

Performance dates are getting closer and closer! Stay tuned to this page for ticket news, cast interviews, and media updates!

Going Off Book!

Monday’s Lost Letters rehearsal was the first one after the holidays. Even though I am sure everyone was mourning the end of the holidays, the cast and production team got right back to work.

As usual, we started rehearsal with a warmup. To give a taste of what kind of exercises our cast members participate in, I will describe last night’s warmup. This particular one, led by Arielle (you can check out my interview with her in previous posts on the DCWTG Tumblr page!), was called Screaming Trees. The actors and actresses stood in a circle, put their heads down, looked up, and whoever made eye contact had to die a loud “death”. As you can imagine, this allowed for some entertaining and creative “deaths” and provided laughs for the cast and the rest of the production team. It also allowed everyone to loosen up and get comfortable in the room before the rehearsal.

After a character exercise led by Star, the bulk of the rehearsal was spent on running through the entire play (without looking at the script!). Because this was the actors’ first time going off book in rehearsal, we naturally did not get through the whole piece. Star gave direction in the back of the rehearsal room, while Evette gave lines to anyone who had trouble remembering. The play ran relatively smoothly, and the work that has been put in to the play so far has been great.

We’re getting close to our performance dates, so I know we are all looking forward to our next rehearsal to perfect the show!
