This week we did not have rehearsal because of Thanksgiving. I am becoming very anxious with the little rehearsal time we have left. At this point, making up rehearsals on Tuesdays or Thursdays with the group might be necessary. With the many rehearsals we have had cancelled, the scholars will struggle with the script, but I know they will work hard!
I think the plan Bridget, Jessie and I have come up with to break into smaller groups will be very effective with the little time we have left. It will allow us to maintain control over the group, but also give individualized attention to the scholars to help them not only read the text aloud, but understand it as well. We are very organized and determined going into this week. I think the few rehearsals we have between today and the show will be very productive. To do this we must keep the scholars focussed and not allow them to distract each other. I’m really looking forward to rehearsal this week and the final stretch before the show!
