Weekly Theatre Update: Part 2

Here we are with our second rehearsal behind us and things are beginning to take shape! I can't even begin to say how excited I am about how well things are going thus far. Starting this week we are focusing on blocking. Blocking is the specific movements during each scene; where the actors move on stage and the actions that bring the story together. The blocking in a scene is anything from a characters entrances and exits, to the usage of props and, something we began focusing on this week, stage fighting.

Ah, yes, the fight sequences. The kids always really love working on a good fight scene, but they certainly aren't the easiest to work on. The two biggest things are getting the timing down pat and making sure that none of the students get hurt.
