From the groundlings to the gods!

Continuing our work at the Globe, we have intigrated as much of the technique and knowledge as our brains can handle into our scenes for this Thursdays performance. This month has gone ridiculously fast. Last week we learned our jig from the ever-effervescent Huw Prall and we had one our last classes in voice, movement, and singing. 

Yesterday, after what was collectively only about a day and a half's worth of rehearsal, we presented our director's scenes to an audience on the Globe Stage. The three scenes were from Ben Jonson's The Alchemist, Christopher Marlowe's Massacre of Paris, and my scene, Campaspe by John Lyly, in which I played Alexander the Great. I am proud to say that we are the first group to perform any of John Lyly's words on the Globe stage. I am now also completely smitten with his works! 

Today, my mom arrives in London!!! YEAH!!!! Tomorrow I get to perform on the Globe stage again!!!!! 

This week just keeps getting better!!!!
