Hey all are you ready to hear about day 3 of rehearsal? Okay here goes:
We had to be there an hour early because my mom had to get a head shot done. I already sent mine in so I wasn’t worried about that. So we parked the car and walked up the sidewalk and looked over at the theater and saw some of our group in there, but didn’t think too much about it so we continued to walk to the studio and when we got there there was a note on the door to head to the studio. We turned around and walked to the theater unsure of why we had to go there instead. We opened the door and we saw the ensemble sitting around waiting for the rehearsal to start. There was a man there waiting for people to come in and get their head shot. My mom went to meet with him and I took a seat. After about a half hour the rehearsal got under way. The asst. director came in along with the dialect coach. We were learning our British accent tonight. I was pretty nervous but excited because I never did anything like this before.
We did a few exercises with her and she showed us how to enunciate the words. An hour went by and they gave us a sentence to read from the play. The woman told us how to read the sentences in the British accent. The women had to do the woman juror part and the men had to do the foreman speaking part. We took a little break so we could practice the lines and then we were called back. They told us that all the women had to stand up one by one like it was an audition and walk to the center of the room and do the line in their best accent. I’m like oh boy in front of all these people. The same thing with the men, they had to read their line and stand in the center of the room. So one by one everyone introduced themselves and said the line. By the time they got to me I was pretty nervous but ready (or so I thought). I honestly can’t even remember how it went, I know I read it but I know it definitely could’ve been better. I was just nervous I think and it went to my head. When everyone read the lines they decided to call it a night.
And that ladies and gentleman sums up rehearsal day 3. Who knows what to expect for tonight. I believe they will decide who gets one of those parts and I betcha it won’t be me haha…stupid nerves.
