A Day In The Life Of An ActorPosted: Wednesday 23 February 2011
We often get asked what’s a typical day of rehearsals like. Well, here goes!
Woke up early today.
Really excited about working on the Friar scenes in Romeo And Juliet.
Walked in to work, gets the mind going.
10am start. Vocal warm up, singing warm up, fight warm up…..really looking forward to putting this show under lights.
And now for the scenes. Damien (our director) is really conscious of the passion needed to drive the play and its characters.
Had a detailed chat about the Romeo and Friar banishment scene before we did it. First run through is sketchy but some great stuff came out of it.
We do the scene a couple more times with more emphasis on the movements of the scene. Damien is a very generous director which is awesome. Nothing better than generous actors and directors.
We finish the final run through and I’m done for the day.
A very productive session.
