Meeting and Greeting.

Seeing the joy and excitement of these campers when they get the chance to spend some face time with the ASC actors they’ve been watching onstage and working with in master classes is always one of the most rewarding moments of camp. The actors have always been beyond generous with their time and talent, and the campers have always been beyond thankful for the opportunity to chat with their heroes.

Text Prep Day: introductory rhetoric class

Check out the campers in Vicky Vail’s introductory ROADS to rhetoric workshop:

 

I swear I didn’t even stage this moment, where Vicky asked the class about applying this new knowledge to understanding Shakespeare:

Be still my heart.

The Moment You’ve Been Waiting For

This morning, the campers strutted their stuff for directors, RDAs, and production interns in a collaborative, quadripartite audition.

Needless to say, we saw a lot of talent this morning.

Other Daniel is definitely impressed.

Then, campers went off for their first voice class with ASC veteran actor Allison Glenzer.

I don’t have pictures of the campers at voice class, because I was stuck in The Room Where It Happens. Please accept this photo of Allison orienting the camp staff instead, with my humble apologies.

As I said, while campers were hard at work finding their natural (“cookie”) voices, the staff rolled up sleeves, took off earrings, and prepared for a knock-down, drag-out casting session.

Several hours (and severed limbs) later, we emerged with THE LISTS.

Um… that’s a lovely sign, Daniel, but not exactly what I meant.

That’s more like it.

Campers also saw the lists!

Now, it’s off to dinner and read-throughs. Ta ta for now!
