Romeo and Juliet - Take 2!


Finally, something good happening on the acting front. I didn't get cast in the play that Network decided to do when they couldn't get the rights to "Breaking the Code". However...

I've starting attending an Acting Gym every Saturday. It is a series of hard core acting workshops run by a professional director, Gavin MacAlinden culminating in a production of Romeo and Juliet. After weeks of full on movement, scene interpretation and iambic pentametre, I have been cast as Friar Laurence, (or as I'm calling her, Reverend Laurence)!!!

Biggest role I have ever had. A key character who drives the plot in Acts 3,4 and 5 and three, possibly four, monologues. Wow! Oh and its set in a night club! Still trying to decide what a priest is doing in a night club. I think I'm going to be a bit of an earth mother. (Her first monologue is all about herbs and plants.)

The only problem is that the performances may coincide with the birth of my niece/nephew in June. Am seeing my sister on Sunday for a Mother's Day lunch. She says that she is now as big as a house!

In the meantime, it is my favourite season. As I posted this time last year, Spring is finally springing:) Am loving the blossom on the trees down my road.

Have started using Pinterest, (mood board website. More visual then Twitter. If Twitter is words, then Pinterest is pictures.) Been repinning pix of Glastonbury and Silence of the Lambs so far. I think that it will be an interesting way of exploring my personality.

Till next time.

A happy Bunyip
