In drama we did a play.We have been practicing all week. I think my partners and I did really good. We were just worried because we didn't want to be the last ones but we sucked it up and went on with the play. I wasn't as nervous I thought I was going to be going on stage.
Regarding your Group Mimed Performance: Your nerves are a hurdle to overcome. Throw all your mental effort into what your character is thinking about and that may help distract you from your nervousness.
My monologue is about a girl who is going through a hard time because both her mom and sister got in a car crash. She feels hopeless so she really needs a friend. Emily and Linda are there to help her go through everything. I will prepare for this monologue by reading it to my sister and getting her opinion on my work. I want feed back on how I read and what I can do to make it better.
Regarding you Monologue Performance: Great start to the story. Slow down and allow the audience to digest the details. Next step is to work on tonal and pacing changes to your allow your speech to appear more natural as if it's the first time you're considering and saying the words.
I woke up studied my monologue. I was so nervous my friend knew exactly what I felt because she had drama last semester. She helped me during lunch. As I walked in class I was okay then I found out I had to go first because the girl that was suppose to be first wasn't here. As I was on stage I was hot but I got through it.
1.What story did you derive from your inspiration collage? I just cut and pasted all the picture that I liked.
2. How is that coming to life in your set-design? It's coming out good at first I was confused and then it all came together.
3.What mood does your collage have? My mood is a peaceful time.
4.What quality of shape, line, and color does your collage have? My collage has a lot of colors. The lines are making the house. The shapes are the furniture in the house.
Discuss your own college goals and what steps your taking toward your post-high school education.
I am having a hard time choosing a college. I know I don't to move far. I don't have any steps but to keep my grades high and take classes that will help me apply to college.
Also, describe your interpretation of why, perhaps, the "Comedy & Tragedy" masks seen so commonly today are such a popular symbol of drama and theatre
I thought it was to show that in drama and theatre you use different face expression to show the audience how they are feeling.
My performance was okay because we didn't get to practice because of some absent problems. It was a little hard to make the puppet but at the end it didn't turn out as bad as I thought.
Regarding your puppet play performance: You asked about how to grow in your performance. My take is that being more fully comfortable with the text will allow you (in this case, the manipulation of the puppet) to more fully engage with the others performing.
Reflect on why you believe one person's work could be so highly acclaimed and how you feel taking on one of his scenes fro your next project.
One person works highly acclaimed because people now a days are still doing his plays. I don't know how I feel about doing a Shakespeare play.
When did you see it and what was the show, event, or occasion? What was the "part" being played? Describe in detail the outfit, so we can imagine it. What do you beleive the costumer did so well so that this costume continues to stand out in your mind?
I remember watching the show FRIENDS I remember the outfits were all in the 90's. The custom designer did a good job because I could see exactly that what they were using is something you dont see today.
I'm sure you will do a great job in your role for the play next week.
I feel like I did okay on my performance I just forgot one line.
i think you did really good on in the play. you did your lines very well and it was believable
In my performance its two classmates and I. we are two teenage girls who just got their license and want to go on a road trip. One of the girls forgot to fill up the car with gas.They get stuck in the middle of no where with no phones food or shelter but they see a house up the trail.
Regarding your final scene 'The Wooden Door": I appreciated your team's story. You had a great set up for the action of being in the "abandoned" house. The action in the house had the class on its toes, including you three I think! The action sequences though I felt were disconnected for the audience, though the stage combat was fun and you all used the stage space very well. I think the team would have benefited form working on stage a bit more. I hope you enjoyed this as your final scene. I think you should be proud. Congratulations.
My final went better than I thought. To be honest I was worried because we kept adding stuff to make it better. We had to improve on somethings to make it a little more interesting. I feel like if we had more time to practice and make the script it would have gone so much better but the end I'm really proud of me and my team. I tried my best even if i didn't want to be in drama in the beginning it was a new experience.
