Diving In, Digging Deep
On Sunday, we hit the ground running. But before it all began, both casts took a JPAS mindful meditation moment. L'Chaim cast while using their breath meditated on "their happy place" and Mazel Tov cast reflected on the concept of "expectations." It was evident all of our actors came to rehearsal today ready to work! We love that!
Being an actor takes practice and self-care. Help us set them up for success by making sure each week your actor reviews their lines, songs, choreography, and blocking. Please show your actor our link to the electronic resource library. It has choreography videos and MP3s of songs learned organized per week, per cast. We would love actors to be off-book as soon as possible. Off-book means not needing their scripts anymore to recite their lines.
Equally as important is that our actors take the time to restore their well-being and fill their creative well, lesson we could all likely benefit from and incorporate more of into our daily routine. I encourage you too, to take time for YOU.
|Electronic Resource Library|
This week's new songs and choreography videos are online! Please also keep listening to the CD, reading the script, and memorizing lines. Keep up the good work!
- Do you know what blocking means? Ask your actor.
- Ask your budding actor what their character is like. What is their character's backstory?
- Discuss the story of Fiddler on the Roof at home. Maybe watch the movie together or check out some YouTube performances - either the Broadway version and/or other youth productions.
We danced and danced some more; we blocked several scenes and sang too! What a blast!
• "Sabbath Prayer #1" and "Sunrise Sunset."
• Learned end of "Tradition" and first part of "Match Maker."
Mazel Tov Cast
We sang and sang some more; we blocked, reviewed choreography, and we had fun doing it all!
• "Sabbath Prayer," "Tradition," "The Dream," "Anatevka," and "To Life."
• Reviewed "Tradition"
