Show Night!

  Weeks of work finally culminated yesterday in two performances! The first was in the afternoon, with an audience of one: the principal of LAMDA. Then, at 6:00, we kicked off the big show for the LAMDA faculty, including the head of the drama department. We performed scenes from "Much Ado About Nothing," "Twelfth Night," and "The Taming of the Shrew."

  I was in all three plays, in four scenes total, as three different characters (Benedick, Orsino, Hortensio). Go ahead, do the math. It adds up.

  It went without a hitch (except for my sweaty hand having trouble pulling a ring out of my pants pocket) and we all had a blast performing. I think our work was well recieved, and it was a fantastic first performance for our group. Next, we're on to the Histories (the Edward's, the Henry's, etc).

  Afterward, we all made our way over to the "Curtains Up" (a favorite pub of local actors) and had a huge, loud celebration. Our Romances/Comedies teacher joined us, and it was tremendous fun. By the end of the night, my voice was hoarse, and I can't remember the last time I laughed so much.
