The process of making the puppet was fun. The clay, painting, and the clothes. Making the script was okay and the acting was fun. Overall i enjoyed myself
Regarding your puppet play performance: In your role you didn't have too much time to shine, but you really took on your character. Way to let loose on the howl!
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 scenes fro your next project.
Shakespeare is a great writer even today most people remember his work. I am excited to act out one of plays, well one of the scenes.Many people would love to act out his plays because they are so poetic and it feels as it is a whole other language. Many people love his work and being a part of seems as if it was there it was someones life only a history book and tell. Shakespeare is praise for what he has done to change plays and poems as it is today.
Recall a costume you remember well. When did you see it and what was the show, event, or occasion? Were you wearing it or was someone else? 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?
A show in Old Sacramento is about Santa and Jackfrost, i remember Jacks costume. He had a dark blue jacket with a light blue shirt under with dark blue pants that had blue trimmings. His staff had crystals on the top designed with snowflakes at the top going to the bottom.
Take a moment to respond to at least two other classmates, offering a "Yes, and..." as they head toward their "Midsummer's Night Dream" scene performance.
Offer encouragement and advice so to add to their confidence and support their growth in acting.
The play was fun i enjoyed it. I know i messed up on a few lines but it was fun.

There's No Place Like Home is about a girl who is tried of her life and who has a lot to handle including the loss of her mother, a messed up dad, a scared little brother and classes for college. One day she decides to leave and she takes her brother with her to have a better life while her dad lives on. My thoughts of this is personal. i have not experience any of this but many people i know and love have. Seeing what happened to them killed me. This performance i hope everyone sees is someone is hurting and instead of being so wrapped up in their lives take a step back to look for the happiest person, the one who hugs everyone and maybe talked to them or maybe just give them a great big hug. It may mean a lot to them.
Regarding your final scene "No Place Like Home": You really did a great job starting of our series of final scenes with a really strong performance. The subject matter was tough and you really dug in. I appreciate how you varied your storytelling from letter writing to argument. The challenge too of having unseen and unspoken character with whom you were having dialogue with was interesting, but really worked. It allowed us to focus wholly on the protagonist and her emotional state and decision making. I, and I had a sense, many got very emotionally invested in your work because you committed to it 100%. I'm so glad I got to see you shine in this piece and am really touched by how thoughtful you are about the subject matter in the sense of hoping it can effect people positively in their relationships with others who may be sadder on the inside than we imagine. This is what theatre is all about. Using what we see and know, turning it into art so that it might change others' points of view. Today you succeeded in that. Congratulations!
p.s. Hats off to you as you graduate. A lot of endless effort and tireless work as come to this. You deserve to feel proud. Cheers to you as you take your next steps into the future! Congrats!
p.s.s. I know that this class was just given to you, but i really hope that you enjoyed it. I saw some awesomely creative things from you in our short time together. I admire you talents. Use them for good!!
