Nothing new to tell...

Second rehearsal of Circus Olympus went really well today.  We worked on telling a story with our bodies ... good times ... played some games, did the fairy tale tableaus, the bench game, and also talked about what the "actors job" is ... among other things.  Everyone seemed to be having a really good time today so that's good.  Did get the inevitable question from a few of "why did some people get two parts and we only got "one small one"?  Oiy...but such is life.  There are no real leads in this script but ... well ... casting is always done from ones audition and this year was more difficult than in years past, with several different myths trying to get every kid at least one speaking role - using 38 kiddos ... phew.  But all in all ... team work ... fun!

Drama Kids still Drama Kidding!

Not going to get those possible fill in gig dates with Cap Rep, they're trying not to use over hire (I understand saving money, but dang).  They did say the will use me next season, so ... WOOT WOOT for that!!!

Me thinks that is all for now ... It's Been Real November 2011
