8/4/2012-ACTING-Performance of “Drums Along The Mohawk”

-The day has arrived! I stayed overnight at location and was up around 6:30 AM. Nice day-and I’m glad the weather held out. I was in full costume & makeup before noon. Performance was at 5 PM. Unfortunately, we didn’t get a chance to do one finally run thru of the entire play like yesterday, but we all just broke off into groups and rehearsed as best we can. A lot of pros in this group-and we managed to pull it together. I have to admit I had a little case of the nerves before going out to do my 1st scene but it was over before I knew it. While similar, there are many differences between acting for film & acting for theater-the main one being for theater you only have one chance to get your lines right.

-I’d brought my camcorder to tape the play but was told I wasn’t allowed to so that didn’t happen 😦 However, I told there was someone officially filming for the production and hopefully I will get a copy of that. 🙂 I had a great time and was glad to have worked w/ such a great cast & crew. Plans are for this to be a yearly event. I don’t know what my schedule will be like but it’s something to look forward to. Pics from the rehearsals before the performance are up on the WWJ PAGE ON FACEBOOK.
