Members have access to my handwritten notes for each audio chapter, bonus resources, personal nicknacks and … a moment of magic.
Talking about the vocal madness of Lord of the Flies got me searching through my things, and look what I found! The actual script from way back:
Reminiscing With My Lord of the Flies Acting Script
Music inspired by our work, to carry us into the break.
Remember … every character unknown is a character story waiting to be discovered.
Plus, this week I’ve added a new song to our EA Imagination Practice playlist.
New songs will be added weekly, inspiring deeper levels of permission and play each time you cross the threshold into your playground of possibility.
This week I’ve also added THREE new songs to our EA Physical Practice playlist.
One to invite the taste of touch, another to inspire the permission of our lazy, Sunday morning roll, and the third to inspire the world of standing.
The playlist is setup to be used three songs at a time, offering new flavors and colors for each go at your Physical Practice.
Moment of Magic
Curtain Call (Dr. Anthony Beukas - YCDS)
Talking about Lord of the Flies also reminded me of how much I was shaped by the passions of my first director.
The great Dr. Anthony Beukas was known for his curtain calls.
They were elaborate celebrations of whatever just transpired on stage - a greatest hits of everything we loved about each show.
What stuck with me was how Dr. Beukas felt responsible for the audience experience through the very last interaction with the cast.
As a director, I feel my responsibility begins from the moment an audience member enters the space, through intermission, all the way until our last actor is off stage and our final light dims.
Just as Dr. Beukas inspired.
Here’s a curtain call taste from Much Ado About Nothing (2015) - celebrating our show, the double-casting of our actors, and the echoes of Shakespeare’s soul carried to conclusion by our Narrator.
