    Rehearsals and Plays

    Last week we had no classes, just rehearsals, which meant lots of downtime to work on lines and see some theatre πŸ™‚ There was a discount code on today tix for Easter weekend, so I had bought tickets to The Play That Goes Wrong (possibly the funniest play I have ever seen), Phantom of the Opera and Hand to God. The first plays went off without a hitch, but then when I went to see Hand to God on Wednesday, there was an announcement that Harry Melling would not be performing that night. I know it’s bad of me and I should be going to see plays regardless of who…

    The Last Classes

    This week was the end of our regular classes at LAMDA. We still have rehearsals, our Tragedies Β and a final movement project on the last day, but our class groups and regularly scheduled classes are all over. This semester is truly coming to an end…. Monday was pretty intense, with some people having to present in every single class. Luckily, all I had to worry about in voice was circles of attention, and watching other people do their monologues. In Debbie’s class, we presented our duologues, with Lucy and I going first (because I asked, I always ask now). It went pretty well, except for a moment near the end,…

    Songs and Sweet Airs

    This was the name of our singing concert that we had on Wednesday, but I will start with the beginning of the week πŸ™‚ On Monday, the beginning of our voice class was spent embodying the images in our speeches, which really tests how well you understand what you’re saying, before I got to watch others perform their monologues. We also watched the last monologues in Debbie’s class, and rehearsed a bit for our duologues. Lucy and I are doing a scene with Emilia and Desdemona from Othello. It seems that almost all of my roles here at LAMDA are servants of some kind, but luckily, most of them have…

    What scares you? Now do that.

    This was kind of unintentionally my motto for the week, starting off in voice class. You see, people have been presenting their monologues to the class, and our teacher has been giving feedback and working on it with them. Monday morning, the last thing I wanted to do was stand in front of everyone and present my monologue, which I really wasn’t confident with. Still, when he asked for volunteers, I stood up. Although I normally did the monologue standing in one place talking to one person (since we were always paired off for those exercises), this time I walked all over the place so I could look to each…

    Meetups, lines and movies

    I have some lines to memorize, some scene work to do and should probably be getting to bed to prepare for my early start tomorrow, but instead, I am writing this post to let you know what has been going on with me. Selfless determination or semi-productive procrastination, you be the judge. In acting/ text, we are working on points of concentration. For instance, we had to do simple tasks, but Debbie would come and whisper some kind of information to us. Sometimes it was environmental, like the time of day, the weather and general atmosphere of where you are. Other times, it was more emotional, like she would tell…

    One Step Closer :)

    One step closer to being a kickass character that is, although I wasn’t sure one of those words would fare well in the title. I’m also one step closer to getting work in Toronto, at least theoretically. To fill you in, on Thursday, we had our last rehearsal before going into tech week, which they keep referring to as Arena Hell Week. That starts today, so we will see how it goes πŸ™‚ Then on Friday, all I had planned was to drive to Toronto for my stunt thing (which actually wasn’t so much about stunts. I misled you). I was packing up my things, about to head out when…

    Rehearsals and a Scene :)

    I can probably name all of my posts “Rehearsals” until May, but there are also other things going on πŸ™‚ Thursday’s rehearsal was one actress short, but we still managed to run through all of our acting bits twice. Even with the guy who was replacing said actress going for comedy more than accuracy with the lines and maneurisms. Although it wasn’t a romantic scene, swapping a girl for a guy can still make it quite interesting. Friday I went to Mcgill for a bit and figured out when we would be filming for the “Yes! Let’s Make a Movie” event. Basically, someone decided that instead of sitting around and…

    Classes, rehearsals and celebrations :)

    I have been out and about working on the acting thing every day since my last post, which is always a good thing. Even if I am not currently reaching concrete milestones, I am still keeping busy, which is motivation in and of itself. At least for me. On Sunday we had a rehearsal for Becket Players, complete with cast photos. Opening night is coming soon and the run throughs keep getting better. I now have my costumes figured out, which is always exciting, and am looking forward to figuring out my hair situation. The show spans decades, so you can look forward to some interesting looks πŸ˜‰ Monday, I…

    The Second Draft

    I am a really big fan of 5 year plans and lists, which you can tell because I am always posting them. A few days ago I made a 5 year plan that ends with me living and working as an actress in Los Angeles. I am fully aware that it might take longer for certain things to happen, to jump certain tiers, but it is incredibly exciting to think that it could be possible, and that as long as I keep hustling, some day I will end up there. *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Over the past few weeks, I have been working on writing a second draft of the book I wrote…

    Research, Rehearse, Film <3

    I have been checking a lot of things off of my list in the past few days, but first, I wanted to thank everyone for all of the headshot love <3 On Thursday night at rehearsals we went through all of our scenes, ironing out the kinks and finalizing what we have already worked on. I am off book and can’t wait to see what it will look like with costumes and the set and everything πŸ™‚ Yesterday I was supposed to have an audition for an amazing project by someone whose work I respect. The breakdown for the role was almost word for word the one I had written…
