Repertory Theatre Term XVII

Repertory Theatre Term XVII


It’s, its actually hard to simply define Rep
Term. Do you see this thing? It’s tiny! They put in 12 hour days, six days a week
together. Exciting isn’t it? Challenges! Even though we have wonderful classes to learn,
Rep Term is the largest opportunity we have to apply what we have learned in a realistic setting. Everybody is busy, and everybody is needed,
and everybody is capable of something and you really realize that in this experience. We’re going to the store to buy prop things
so that I can make edible pottery. The students form the entire company, they
become producers, they become the entire PR and marketing and branding team, they do all
the social media. The level of independence that Rep Term demands
is in every arena. I have learned how capable I am and how much
I can accomplish with other people and the abilities that I have as well as the abilities
that I can procure. We have a lot that needs to be done outside
of the rehearsal time, the line memorization, choosing strong tactics, everything that an
actor has to do. There are no wasted moments in Rep Term. I don’t think crazy is a word I would use,
you not only have to be creative with what it is you are building, but creatively problem
solving. There are moments when the students have a
funny instance or they have a discovery that everybody can celebrate. This is a submersible LED light and it is
waterproof, we carved out the cork so it can sit in there and there’s another one in there! Seeing it all come together is magical! And it’s not only have they learned something,
they have learned something about themselves artistically, and have contributed to the
whole of the show.
