CONGRATULATIONS TO THE CAST AND CREW OF HENRY V!

During the first week of rehearsals for Henry V, we had an amazing “on your feet” first read followed by an intense drumming workshop led by local musician, Marc Chilemmi, who also teaches drum circle for MS PAW.  Additionally, we had a stage combat workshop led by Sally Wood, a guest artist form Portland Stage Co. and Bowdoin College Theatre Program.  The cast and crew worked on slaps, punches, falls, hair pulls, devising battle scenes in small groups and exploring the physical movement created from shooting a long bow.  The goal was to create an epic sense of battle with a variety of movement and sound.  Here is a link to another rehearsal video featuring our long bow battle lines.  Yes, we are off to a boisterous beginning!

The crew is still open so students should be in touch if they would like to join in! Contact tfuhro@waynflete.org or cfitze@waynflete.org.
