18 Aug Costumes, Dance and Wind!
So today we had Alys at rehearsals to work with some of the young people on movement; mainly our “feast” scene but she also managed to train them into excellent convincing dogs! Maddy came along as well and removed some of the costumes which are in need of repair and slight adjustments.
But during rehearsals we had to battle with howling wind…I know this is the Tempest but we really don’t need sound effects which we can’t control! At one point no-one could hear a thing except the sound of the wind turbine which was like a helicopter landing!
Personally it was quite a difficult day as one of the actors has decided to withdraw; this left me feeling a bit deflated but I managed to eventually recruit 2 people to take over the role so hopefully all will be okay.
