Goal(s) For This Show:
A. To "force" storytelling a little more strongly with the kids by utilizing a small (as in very minimal) setting. Perhaps I can find a show where we have no real backdrop or anything but the black curtains and a few set pieces that come on and off the stage?!
B. To utilize some mask work into the script - where by I can have a group of students in masks moving ... would be pretty sweet right?
C. To be a show that is something the kids don't know - in other words, nothing as "well known" as Peter Pan or The Wizard of Oz, thus fostering learning in another way that isn't - "...see this well known story was adapted and our show is not the same as the Disney Movie...etc...". Perhaps something that fosters specific cultural learning, like a Japanese Play - or stories from Japan, or something like that...
At any rate, it is time to start searching!!! What will we be doing ... ???!!! :o)
And...Comedy, Comedy! camp continues ... some frustrations ... some really fun comic moments ... and that is all!
PS...should I start a "Maggie's Rants" blog? Could be funny?
