This week we started to get to know our scripts and characters and also did an on-script performance of our play in front of our class mates. We planned when we were going to film our plays, where and how.
I think it is important to get to know your character because then you know how you can tweak your lines so they seem like you just thought of what you are saying and that it seems more real.
I really enjoyed getting to know my character because he is interesting and has a bad temper that is being oppressed by his fiancée.
This week we have been finishing up our fairytale planning. We have written our script and have planned our costumes.
I really think it is important to make such small plays so professional because then everybody in the drama class knows how much hard work goes in to a normal show.
Even though it is hard to write a school and islamic country approptiate script that respects all religions and interests, I really enjoyed writing the Script to “The Twisted Life” inspired by the Grimm’s Brothers’ Rapunzel.
We have since writing the script obviously changed the wording to make it seem more natural, but I will upload a copy of the script for everyone to read.
So far in this week we have done more work on Basel Masks and read other people’s blogs.
On Tuesday we have performed the Basel Mask act that we had prepared. My group got voted to act in the assembly. I think Mr. D wants a group to act in the assembly so that we can showcase everything that is going on in Drama. I really liked our performance, even though I had to act like a girl – AGAIN -. I think that we got voted into the assembly by our class because we had practiced everything allot of the time and we had our moves down, and because the Music fit to our funny theme.
- In our act we were in a hair salon, and the person waiting was grouchy. So she stole “fatty’s” Food to make her leave and then cut off my “hair” -
