A Spooky Rehearsal Video

29Oct10

Alright—-I’ve been shy about sharing any rehearsal video here on the blog up to this point. For one thing, the experience of seeing theater happen live is NOTHING like watching it recorded on the director’s phone camera. It’s impossible to feel the tension, the thrill, the suspense—-the camera just doesn’t capture those (unless you’re actually making a film.) But, all excuses aside, I’d like to give you a little peek at what we’ve been up to in rehearsal for the past two months.

What you’re about to see is a scene that was created and performed by ensemble members Lisa Keeton (Sarah) and David Torres (Eric, offstage.) In the scene, a newlywed couple discusses their new living situation and their hopes for the future. The young wife, Sarah, has just moved into her husband’s house. He has told her never to come upstairs to the attic, where he spends a good amount of time. He has build in a camera and intercom system so that he can see her and communicate with her from the attic.

Since this is raw rehearsal video, you’ll get to hear my sidecoaching (when a director gives direction to the actors as they continue to play the scene) and my rather obnoxious response at the end! (I think I sound a lot like my cartoon hero, Brain, the genetically altered lab mouse.)

Please join us on Saturday, 10/30 at 1pm for our last workshop! We’ll be celebrating some of the roots of Halloween as we explore ideas about death, closure, and transformation. It’ll be lots of fun!
