In A Midsummer Night's Dream I had the delight of playing Hermia. It was my first Shakespeare play, and one of my favorite RCHS plays so far. The use style and lighting was so bright and fun, and gave a great desired eighties feel.
I did costumes for this production. It was a lot of fun to find color schemes that fit each character and find costumes. We had a couple rough patches but it was still a lot of fun. I love these people and I love doing costumes for productions!
I've never done any Shakespeare before, but Midsummer was an incredibly enjoyable introduction to it. The workshops, rehearsals and performances were some of the most fun I've ever had in theatre. Having a different director was also an interesting experience.
Midsummer was a really good experience for me considering it was my first time working on a show outside of Theatre 1. I signed up for crew since I didn't really have any experience working crew and wanted to have some new skill sets to develop. I had a pretty great time considering that people I knew were around and were willing to help me get a feel for everything around the theatre. Considering I was pretty much building and pulling things constantly it was pretty rigorous, but it was a good time.
Performance time was also pretty fun, minus that one time I had to come out and close the curtains because Anthony forgot. But it was fun, I enjoyed it.
I was a part of Juliet's Ghost. I originally did not have any lines but two days before Lenaea I got two lines and it was great. All around it was super fun to perform.
Midsummer was a lot of fun! I liked working on music and costuming, especially since I want to get better at both of those!
update: i clicked on the wrong performance
Mid Summer was my first full stage production in RCHS and I couldn't be happier with the results. Even with the many hiccups along the way acting in Midsummer was a very enjoyable experience. This is when I first met the many chaotic children we call theater kids so I look forward to the upcoming plays.
A Midsummer Night's Dream was, in my humble opinion, one of the best productions I've ever been in. It was my first time doing a whole Shakespeare show, as well as the largest part I'd ever had in a production. In some ways, memorizing Shakespearean dialogue was easier than modern lines which was surprising. Midsummer was a great experience and I feel like it really pushed our cast members to support one another and grow as a company.
