Taking a break from cramming lines (not those kind of lines…)
#let's do this
#juvs does theatre
When The Clockwork Cutie Revue (this steampunk burlesque show I performed on) closed this past Saturday (*le sad face*), I had one last thing on my theatre agenda. It was just going to be an easy tech work job, but funnily enough, became something so much more.
I’m stoked because this Friday I get to go to Maui to help put on a play I helped with here on Oahu. I was just going to take it easy (no rehearsals!) until we flew out Friday.
Until Monday morning…where I found out that I was actually going to ACT and now I have to cram these lines in. It’s all good, though. I’m surprisingly not panicked, and am even more excited. I told a friend that I *had* planned on taking it easy…maybe look at my tech notes, re-organize the sound effect CD, but the prospect of acting is pretty awesome. I don’t know the situation that cause one of the people to drop out…but I hope that person is ok. I’m honored they asked me to fill in. It was a part I originally auditioned for, so looking forward to doing it.
It’s tricky to work the whole play and see how the original actress did it. It’s even trickier to make the character my own in 3-4 days, while working on line memorization. It’s taking 2-3 months of rehearsals down to 3-4 days. I’m stoked to work with this cast…they’re all SO good, and I’m doing my damndest to make sure this show freaking rocks it these 2 shows on Maui.
Still! Acting! …and back to memorizing!

Answer all these questions and you should have a fully-developed character for your audience to connect with.
A strong character can carry a weak plot; but a strong plot can’t carry weak characters
