Has everyone thought about their characters this week? Last time, after exploring characters and costumes, we ended with everyone naming what characters they would like to be in our emerging class play. Tomorrow, we'll be learning about sets and blocking. Here's a peek at what I've got planned:
Vocal/Body Warm Ups: A few simple games and songs to get us moving and talking.
Apple Tree: Through this story of a tiny seed growing into a big apple tree, we'll explore how our bodies can move in certain ways to tell the story, or to set the scene.
On Set: We'll discuss what a set is and what objects (props) we might find in ones we imagine, then we'll play an imaginative game to cement our understanding.
Back on Stage: Bringing back the concept of the stage, we'll devise a few scenes for characters to interact in.
Set the Scene: Finally, we'll settle on a setting for the class play.
See you tomorrow!
