After two+ weeks in Theatre 1, how do you feel you have changed?
1. Being in Theatre 1 for two+ weeks has allowed to look at things the gives me "a different beat in my heart" that always gets me excited.
In relation to your interaction with others?
I was shy person at first because i didn't know anyone but that changed when we started doing activities.
In relation to your interaction with yourself (inner monologue)?
As for myself at this point I don't know what I want, but soon i"ll find it.
In relation to school?
Since I been in high school I been having the time of life so that's all i have to say.
What further changes are you hoping to see in yourself?
Being about to find myself and being happy.

I feel like I have changed but not enough to be comfortable and share my script. I made a couple new friends but I'm still awkward around them. I know that I am a creative person I just don't like to show it. I've always been shy but once I get to know you I'm really nice. I still hope to step out of my comfort zone and be who I truly am.
For our rehearsals for our mime performance it was good but i got my group to focus and then we finally did it right. We got the job done by the end of the period and then the play came. I feel like we did good in the play but we could've done better.
Please consider your monologue... what are you doing to prepare yourself for the performance? How are you going to bring physicality to your character? Also, what specifically would you like feedback about for your performance?
What i'm going to do to prepare myself is i'm going practice, practice, practice. I'm going to change my tone when needed. I would like to know if i'm quiet and jittery.
The experience of writing and performing my original was very new. I didn't what to do. When I started to write to write it I didn't know what to write about, I chose to write about love.Then when it came to performing I was so scared. I was shaky and nervous. I felt as if I was going to throw up at any moment when performing. But when I finished it was really fun.
Well, I'm glad you didn't become ill on stage. You made it through! Your story had great plot elements with a rise, fall and rise of action. Work on living in the moment with your character so you vocal intonation and intensity of energy can ride along with the text rather than coming across flat. Consider the tactics of each moment and match those with vocal and physical expressions so you might integrate those ideas into your performance.
The whole experience of drawing and thinking what I was going to do was hard. It was also easy to make a theme of something I love. Then presentation....ohhh yikesss! I felt like I was going to faint. Im not comfortable presenting in front of classes.
Describe your puppet character in looks, but also in personality. What physical things (fabrics, accessories, details) are you going to consider for your puppet creation that will help us to know and understand the character? How and why will these attributes have a deeper meaning for your character?
My puppet character is a skull with horns and a red to pink gradient face. I don't know where I came up with it, it just popped up in my head. For the fabric I decided to use black and blue cheese cloth for different color or what ever. Its supposed to be used as a dementor <-- I dont know how to spell, but its meant to kill Happy Potter
Consider the work you put into creating your puppet. How did you go about it? What did you struggle with along the way and how did you problem solve those moments? What parts of your puppet really stand out to you as great? How did those parts come about?
At first I had no idea what to do, I didn't even know where to start or how to put the pencil on the paper. Then I got the weirdest idea to do a pink to red ombre skull. The foam part of the puppet was a huge mess and disaster. Then the clay was the easiest part. Im proud of the horns and clothing i made for my puppet.
Reflect on your Puppet Play Performance (focus manipulation, voice, story, etc.) Also, describe your impressions of the puppet plays of other groups.
In the play I was the dementor. I couldn't do a raspy voice cause it hurt to much.But in my group we were supposed to kill Harry Puter finally and we did.

You have likely studied Shakespeare prior to this class, or at the least were introduced to him and his work this week. Reflect on why you believe one person's work could be so highly acclaimed and how you feel taking on one of his famous scenes for your next project.
Describe the two costumes you're designing for "A Midsummer Night's Dream". Which characters are you designing for and how are you making their clothing an extension of their character? Consider describing the line, shape, silhouette, color, fabric, and accessories that are making your design interesting and thoughtful.
im designing Theseus and thisbe's costume they arent dating but i made them put grey sweatpants on and Theseus has on a blue shirt and thisbe has a red shirt on.
You're costume designs sound very unique and original, I hope you perform well in the play. I encourage you to practice your lines before we perform.
Performing the play as Theseus wasnt as bad as I thought. I stuttered still and couldnt quite memorize my lines. But other than that I feel I did ok and the people in my group did very well too.
Submit a Creative Process Reflection for your Final Scene explaining what your performance piece is about, how you’re putting it together, and what some of your thoughts and influences are as you’re constructing the performance. What are you hoping the audience takes away from your performance? BE DETAILED AND THOROUGH WITH YOUR RESPONSE
so we have to do a 12-14 minute play and we are still figuring out what we are going to do. But we need to make sure its gunna last long and find one online over the weekend.
