I thought it time for a little update on Dragonsong. Rehearsals are great and our director, Steven, is amazing. I'm already learning SO much. It's a lot different from CCS drama, but I'm learning a lot more about acting in general.
We do warm-ups which is something I've never done before, but it really gets you concentrated and allows you to get in character. *Call me crazy!* But no, I've never done warm-ups for drama. It takes a little getting used to, making a fool of yourself. But it is good for me I believe.
At rehearsal last night we learned three songs. Two were amazing, but only our lead character Menolly sings those. The one I sing is just weird. *sigh* You get what you get :)
The kids who sing are adorable. They don't really know the notes yet and sing really loud, so everyone was cracking up. I felt kind of bad, but it was SO fun. Good memories. :)
Menolly has an incredible voice and it is perfect for the role. It's sweet and beautiful.
Oh, also, I am learning to play guitar. Just thought I'd add that in.
