Friday Night Blog
As you guys know this weekend we opened Metamorphoses! Opening night was a good experience for us to feel how the play would read in front of an audience. We encountered moments of highs and lows. And for Friday's show we took these moments and rehearsed them and made them even better. A typical Berkshire Theater Friday show has the biggest audience and usually consists of 80% students and 20% adults. Of course we wanted to put on the best show possible for our peers and teachers, but we faced some obstacles that proved to be harder to overcome than we thought. For this show, we do not have the luxury of using microphones so projection and diction were very necessary in delivering our lines. Due to nerves and the amount of people in the audience, as a cast we struggled to reach the audience with our volume. All of the content of the play itself is very compelling, but it was up to us to draw the audience's attention to that very important content, and to do that we needed to be louder. We still had a great show full of funny, happy, and sad moments, but our performance was slightly hindered by our lack of volume. Overall the performance went well. However, We are very excited to step up our game tomorrow!!!!
Thanks for floating with us,
