Overall in things fall i think that the experience was a positive one at that. having an ensemble piece shows how well we can work together and how to bond with people we don't normally bond with. The Lenaea Festival was a really positive moment in my theater experience. i stayed all three days. i got to see so many monologues, duos, one acts, and even a one act to 'Be More Chill'
Although I was absent due to my sickness, i trusted my theater friends to do well in the Lanea festival. Hopefully next year i do better!!! You all did great, so proud!!
This was my second time at Lenaea and my first time performing in anything there. It made it easier that I had been part of the process without performing once before. It was less intimidating than I thought it would be and the criticism given was good and helpful. It also made me have to focus more often than I am good at which is probably something I should work on.
For Things Fall Meanwhile, I learned the importance of an ensemble driven show. It was different from other shows I'd been in, there weren't main characters then ensemble, together we all were characters and ensemble. None of us never left the stage, and everyone took turns with a speaking role, with some even being part of the setting. It was strange being on the stage at all times, and knowing that someone at one point was watching me.
When i auditioned for Things Fall (Meanwhile) and got one of the narrator roles i was surprised but i started practicing and learning my lines i also had to remember the hand movements and the floor pattern. On the night of the performances i felt that i did good and Lenaea Festival was fun i enjoyed seeing the different one acts from the different high schools i think that i did well at the festival.
Things Fall has been one of my favorite productions I've done, although they have all been delightful. Lenaea has been one of my favorite experiences since freshman year, and has continued to be an incredibly helpful, and fun event.
This was my third time attending Lenaea and my second time performing in the one act. Things Fall (Meanwhile) was a wonderful play that I am proud to say I was a part of. I'd never performed a one act without any sound effects or props; this made for both a learning experience and tons of fun. I am very proud of what was accomplished in such a short time period. We gave our best performance at Lenaea and prize or no prize, we're all winners in the end.

But I like to use fonts. It's fun!
This was the first time I've gone to a Lenaea Festival.
At first, I was nervous. Going to a 'fancy' new place that of which I wasn't familiar with. However, the moment us as a unit performed, I wasn't as fearful.
Everyone did amazing!
I think this was a great start to the new year! Though I didn't originally have a roll, I had a lot of fun coming up with movement for the ensemble so that it all fit together. When I was asked to fill in for Sariah when she couldn't do it at Lenaea, I was honestly really excited. I had never performed at Lenaea, despite going for two years previously. So, yeah, it was a lot of fun. I love Pi and everyone else.
Okay so, I have no idea what possessed Mr. Hanks to give a part like this. Like what led him to believe I could keep a straight face??I did manage it though, so I guess he wasn't completely misguided. Auditions were spontaneous which was wild but it did give us less time to get worked up about it beforehand. I thought the show was really interesting and it was definitely different from anything else I'd experienced.
I was so excited to be able to take the show to Lenaea! Lenaea was so much fun in general too! It was a huge learning experience be able to watch the workshops and see other schools' one-acts. It also fun getting to hang out with our theater class and get closer to everyone. I really had a jfetikjopr nhdwiujyh hooople blurple time hqfeujewhjqhw ikeujtg opfijwe ikfijghuerj
I played Shizm. He is kind of a jerk but it was fun! The real star of the show was the ensemble. All of the choreography really made this show great. I also sang a song at Lenaea. I'm really proud of the work I brought to the competition.
What I was thinking about before going in is that I might screw up somehow by forgetting my cue for something but after I was finished I did feel better about myself knowing that I actually did a good job in the end. When we were arriving the Folsom Lake college I did feel nervous thinking I might do something stupid and screw up everything but just like the play I didn't do too bad so I did feel better on that as well. Then there is the college itself which I very much enjoyed. A lot of the people were kind and fun to hang around with and the plays were pretty good for what they were. Plus the food was pretty great, especially for the food trucks.
Things Fall (Meanwhile) was an exciting play from the start. From when Hanks told us his big ideas to Lenaea, it has been an exciting ride. I very much enjoyed getting killed by an air conditioner and getting hit in the head by a rock and becoming a tree and becoming a cello. They were all interesting roles, but because it was an ensemble piece I felt happy that we were so connected through this play. Lenaea was amazing. I wish I could've gone both days but due to homework I had to take a day to catch up. Other than that, this was an amazing experience.
Things Fall (Meanwhile) was an exciting, but a tricky play for me. This was my first play that I had been in that did not include props. We had to do everything by hands from being angels to becoming an ambulance to helping a woman give birth all in the play of course. At first I wasn't too sure of how this was going to work out because we all had our struggles in the beginning when we were trying to make the angel. My biggest concern was definitely trying to remember when to do the hand movements and try and go either at the same time as everybody else or as the same time as my group. All in the end it came out well and I was proud of the performances that were given. On performance night I was very eager to perform, but also very nervous because I had only two nights to rehearse and remember the lines with the entire cast because during our runs I had my understudy running lines and rehearsing for a week so I felt like I forgot some of the stage directions, but in the end I felt alright about my performance. We took this one act to the annual Lenaea Festival and I'm really sad that I wasn't able to make it and perform it there due to prior and other commitments at school, but I know that my peers did really well. Proud of all you!! :))
