Rehearsals are underway for the fall play, Shakespeare’s AS YOU LIKE IT. Check out the gallery above!
The cast of twenty along with several crew members were treated to a workshop with the teaching artists from Portland Stage Company this week. We explored a variety of concepts and added to techniques to help us bring Shakespeare’s play to life. Actors engaged physically with the text, strengthened their connections as an ensemble, created the “Forest of Arden” and setting for this play, made choices that acknowledge their characters’ social status, and choreographed an impromptu dance.
In addition the hardworking stage crew has already begun some impressive work on an ambitious set.
