Dear All,

What an interesting day we had! I've written the the Scheduling Office, so we'll see about future rehearsals. Though it might not be too much of an issue. We'll be working through acts 1, 2, and 3 tomorrow, and acts 4 and 5 on Wednesday. We will be meeting in the space on Tuesday through Thursday. Bring warm clothing! On Thursday we will be running the entire show (witches, remember: you ARE called) from 6:30 to 10:30. We might end up working things and then running the show at nine. Saturday at 10:30 am we will run the show again in the space. Is anyone intersted in having breakfast beforehand? Then, we have next Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (where we will be runing the show in the space) and then it's the show!!!!

And now, without further ado, here are the rehearsal notes:

Rehearsal Notes 4.13

Warm ups

· Yoga

· Three Steps

Midnight show—Friday at Lincoln Field; can leave and come back

Rehearsals on spring weekend—Saturday 10:30-12

The Banquet Scene

· When Banquo enters, keep going with Nick

· Harry touch Nick, move to platform à Nick can’t move, vocalize words (saying lines in head)

· Harry enter around “my royal lord” top of page 30

Poof! We’re in Barbour Lounge. Here’s where I miss some stuff sending an email to the Scheduling office, but it looks cool out of the corner of my eye.

Back to the Banquet Scene

· Faster à quick shake down

· Jen bracing Nick’s back

· Youth!

· Nick—struggle from the inside

· Nick barks (for now)

· Emma and Mat exit

· M&M remember to exit stage left

· Quyen and Jen stay, guard Harry

· Everyone find a point to restrain Nick à try to run at Olivia

· “Mat, I’m sorry, you didn’t just rub my nipple, you engulfed it…I have a nipple thing”-Nick

· Channel all your aggression!

· Amazing barking laughing! à “I cannot wait to see that when both of you are in leather”

Witching Hour

· They’re conferring!

· Enter Kevin, fighting!

· Shmoo (not Schmoo): they know, but we don’t à Mat tries to play

· Mat = mama witch

· Mat can intervene in disciplinary manor à “Don’t take that tone with me! I’ll throw you back in the cauldron!!”-Mat

· Crying à sudden duck and cover = MOST AMAZING THING EVER!!!

· “Just sadistic bitches. It’s great!”-Jen

· Quyen is out; Mat, Jen and Emma create game

· In the show, sudden switch into evil mode?

· Schmaux (pronounced shmootoo): hand clapping, Quyen tries to intervene

· Emma’s a bitch witch

· Back into Shmoo à “Your forehead’s mine!”—Emma

· Mat tries to convince to play Schmaux

· “Traitor, traitor, traitor, pants on fire!”-Emma

· Go back and forth between

· Quyen complains to Mat

· So, it appears that Quyen is the youngest witch

· We’ve moved on to Shmoo3, only Mat doesn’t know it

· Schmoo4 involves finding out Carolyn is ticklish

Should we do a speed through?

Nick is playing Shmoo1 with dagger speech

· Include reacting in monologue


· Act 1, Scene 1

o Come together as three person statue of desire

o Have very drastic change to seduction

o Playing little children, aren’t actually little children

o Playing Schmaux

o Start playing schamux and then Quyen enters

o Spontaneously find positions

o Find mutually dependent positions

o Quickly do it in pairs

o Back to groups of three

ARIK—talk to Dan Byers (sp?) about filming; what do you want to do about daggers?

Thanks for working so hard. Sorry for all the difficulties. See you tomorrow!
