From Company Member Angela: The past two days have been so exciting; I can’t believe we are rehearsing! We have finally finished writing our script and all our lyrics. We are, however, still stuck on names for two of our songs. I think it’ll come to us sometime during our rehearsals. For things like this you need to be inspired; people will be watching this show to educate themselves on Emily's story, so everything has to be perfect.
This show is so beautiful and powerful. I’m am truly proud of it. We are learning so much about our characters through various acting techniques and exercises. We are also learning how to work together as a unit. I feel like we understand more about ourselves and the characters we work with. (We also learned how to work together by making cake and tacos at our director’s house!) Plus we have been rehearsing in the beautiful South Oxford Space in Brooklyn. This whole experience has been great so far!
