Wizard of Oz Calendar and Music Links

Below are the calendars for each month for rehearsals!  Also, at the bottom is the link to all the music so you can practice!  Let's do this! :)


Click on the listen to the music from Wizard of Oz and practice! Munchkinland was too long, so was therefore cut in half and added at the bottom of the list. All music (aside from the Overtures) is present on this link! --> https://sites.google.com/site/wozmusicalta/wozmusicfiles

Far Away Clean-up! Help Needed!

Hey everyone! 

We are gearing up for the new school year and upcoming shows. As excited as we are, we've recognized we're in need of your help. If you can come help with our Far Away reorganization process we need TONS of hands on the 18th! We will start out there around 9:00am and go through the afternoon. I will provide some breakfast (bagels, muffins, juice) and lunch (pizza or sandwiches) for everyone who comes! You will also receive 20 extra credit points at the beginning of the year to make up an absence in any theatre class! If you bring a friend, you can also get an Alta Theatre water bottle or lanyard for free! 

Tag and invite people on the Facebook event page and let us know if you're coming- It would mean a lot to me and Ms. Barker, as well as The Wizard!

The Crucible Notes – 2 February, 2017

The Crucible notes from today's rehearsal are posted below in case anyone did not have access to Facebook.  Thank you for your hard work! :)  Also, shout-out to Cheyenne for separating it all out and typing it up so beautifully - you're sincerely an incredible AD!

The Crucible Notes – 2 February 2017
Act 1 Scene 1
Hayden: 
  • How would you actually tell someone to get out?
  • When you tell Abagail to sit, why did you move the chair you sit in and not use it?
  • Make sure your body language matches your lines.
  • “Where is my wood” – throughout that entire section when you are yelling at Proctor, you are insulting him, NOT complaining, make sure it sounds like an insult. 
  • Vary your tactics
  • In the end, (when Tituba is in the chair) your overlapping was good, but you can’t overlap so much that Tituba doesn’t even had time to answer. 
Michaelann:
  • Great posture!! Thank you!!
  • Looking at Parris when he exits is really nice. 
  • When you say “I saw Indians smash my dear parents heads.” You are using your higher register and you can’t on that line. It needs to be lower and a bit more malicious. 
  • After Kylan enters, your beats and switches need to be more clear (around “Oh john give me a word”) 
  • Stay honest
  • Good reactions and staying in character! (: 
  • “That frog jumped in there” that needs to be more of a realization.
Noah:
  • Be even more comforting when Ann is talking about her “Dead babies” you started to, now just make it bigger.

  • Slow down your lines, you are talking to fast. 
  • Don’t stand in front of people
  • Have reactions
Addie:
  • Don’t move awkwardly around the chair with Noah, move with confidence.
  • Slow down your lines a bit, we can’t understand you when you go fast. 
  • Good looking at Hale’s books when he puts them on the dresser.
  • Isn’t Ann supposed to get Tituba?
Emma:
  • Slow down your lines! (Especially “I fear it”)
