Check in with Chellapah pt 2
Welcome back to another Check in with Chellapah! Here’s part 2 for you wonderful lot.
I started off the day with a management team meeting for the Warwick Rep Theatre Company in Costa. After my meeting I went to the library and caught up on some reading for my Melodrama and Performing Online modules.
I went to Codpiece exec in the evening and then quickly headed home before going to Bedford Street Bar in Leam for the Music Theatre Warwick Follies fundraiser! All in all the fundraiser was a great success with the charity auction raising over £500 – read more about it here: http://www.warwickcourier.co.uk/news/warwick-theatre-group-supporting-mental-health-charity-1-7786607
Wednesday was completely dedicated to the rep! I ran audition workshops with my lovely friends and fellow rep exec members Caroline and Michelle.
In the evening we all headed to the duck for a social before some of us went to POP!
In Melodrama we looked at two texts that we had read prior to the seminar and in Performing Online we looked at our relationship to social media and also our online presence.
Community was super fun this week as we did lots of different challenges (mostly in pairs) where we had to get one another to lose our balance. In writing, the whole class shared 3 ideas for their final play as we are required to get into pairs and act as a dramaturg for each other. My three play ideas were: an episodic play about tea looking at different families who drink tea to the individuals that pick tea leaves, a play about a group of refugees in a english language class and a play about a de-miner. Friday evening was the Noughts and Crosses first fundraiser. It was a very cute and cozy film night as we watched Guess Who? and munched on lots and lots of popcorn!
As part of my youth theatre leader role at the Arts Centre, this weeks session was about Elizabethan theatre and we specifically looked at Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors. The kids devised pieces around the plot line and they were very funny indeed! After I headed to the library to do some more reading and at 6pm I went to Noughts and Crosses rehearsals.
I did absolutely nothing oops!
