We're diving into the art of acting, we're discussing what is needed for a well-prepared audition, and we're learning about each of the aspects of a total theatrical production. Fun stuff, if this is where your passion and interests lie. The youngest campers are 5, and the oldest are 18. Here's a pic of my youngest class acting out a scene- I believe this was Spiderman, a princess, and a bumblebee at a birthday party...
For you locals, there's an arts/crafts fair this Saturday in the courtyard of Downtown Northport from 10-2. Lots of vendors, including moi, will be selling homemade goods, and I'm told there will also be children's activites + face painting. If you're looking for something fun to do- come by and see us!
Auditions for the next show I'll be directing- Into the Woods, Jr- will take place on August 9th and 10th. If you're not familiar with the show, there's a great synopsis HERE. (that link also has a few musical selections to listen to as well)There's also a DVD of the original Broadway production starring Bernadette Peters available for purchase HERE. The junior version, which we'll be doing, is the first act of the original so that everything ends 'Happily Ever After'. In the full adult version, things get a little crazy in Act II and people get a little crushed by a giant. I'll be posting more about the show in the future, but wanted to get these links posted with more information about the show itself.
Matilda Jane Clothing will have its first launch of the new Fall line, Character Counts on August 15 and I'll be hosting an in-person AND a virtual trunk show on the 16th. The clothes will be posted online on the 15th, but the MJ blog already has a few sneak peeks of some of the pieces. You can find the MJC blog HERE.
