Journal 1

My group will be working with CHAT (Churchill Activity and Tutoring) a christian based organization that strives to provide opportunities to underprivileged children in the Richmond area. In preparation of meeting our group in the next few weeks we have begun to cut our script and jot down preliminary thoughts regarding staging. We have read carefully though about half of our scene, cutting repetitive lines. Our group has also discussed the major themes Shakespeare sought to convey in the last scene of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and the ways in which we can preserve his vision of the play, while keeping it an appropriate length for our production. We will continue to work towards a final version of our script over the next week or so and look forward to meeting our group!
