A Day of Laundry, Rehearsal, and Music

This fine Sunday has been spent doing a large variety of things. Some people took their time off in the morning to sleep in and catch up on some much needed sleep after the fast-paced work we've been doing over the last week. Others spent time together in rehearsals and working out some less time consuming tasks.

Then there are those who got some fresh air away from Björklunden and spent their afternoon running errands or getting a load of laundry in.

The rest of the afternoon was spent getting ourselves back together and continuing rehearsals and working with scripts. Our evening session was an open workshop with Kathy Privatt, one of Lawrence University's professors in the Theatre Arts Department. She watched all four of our plays and provided feedback for the actors. We then took this advice and ran through various scenes with her to see how some of her ideas played out on stage. It was a pleasure as always to work with Kathy and we are very excited to be working with her tomorrow morning as well.

The rest of tonight has been spent working in various groups. Public Outreach has discussed how we want to run our presentation for the classes we're visiting tomorrow while the Music Directors for the production have been discussing what they would like to be played and meeting with different company members to see what instruments they brought to play and what songs we might be able to perform throughout our show. Because what's a celebration without music?
