July 9th: AUDITIONS!
This one is FUN.
THERE’S SOMEONE INSIDE YOUR HOUSE
The story: people are dying! Classic thriller! Who is the bad guy?? Makani is our lead, and THAT IS ALL I KNOW!
Ladies: Makani. She moved from Hawaii for your senior year of high school to escape… something.
Gentlemen: Ollie. The all black wearing loner who has an affair with Makani before school starts. He’s bothered by the fact that she doesn’t want to go public with him. His older brother is the sheriff, and raised him since his parents died when he was a kid.
This is an exercise in text analysis.

Notes on REHEARSAL
Rehearsals are the most magical part of what we do. It’s where we get to decide in safety and confidence what WE can bring to a part with the help and support of a team of trusted advisors on a similar journey.
OUR JOB as classmates and as actors is to be supportive of an individual’s process by helping them try as many things as possible to help an individual find their best.
OUR JOB IS NOT to be right, to put each other down, to disparage someone’s choice, or make someone feel less than confident about their work.
THINGS TO TRY:
1. Run it Through.
• Don’t feel like you need to jump straight to a final performance! Run the scene sitting, run the scene on it’s feet. Feel it out! Compliment what works first from that place of gut instinct.
2. Talk it Out.
• Dissect the Scene, talk about the individual beats, what the character’s purpose is, what they want. Think about it from everyone’s point of view, the writer, director, editor, the audience. REMEMBER THERE’S MORE THAN ONE WAY TO PLAY A SCENE, but the beats don’t lie.
3. Beat it Out.
• Get up on your feet and work through beat by beat. What works? Compliment it! What doesn’t? Get rid of it, figure it out! Does it flow? Where does it stop, where are we taken out of the story?
4. Refine It.
• Make sure you can get all the way through it. If anything stops you, go back to the beat and hash it out.
