The Winter Play is coming!
Performances at Waynflete are scheduled for Friday, March 3rd and Saturday, March 4th at 7:00pm and please join us at the One Act Festival: March 11, 1:00 pm Morse High School, Bath, ME.
For the past six weeks the Franklin theatre has been humming with preparations for a performance of six student – written plays. The evening will open with five ten-minute pieces written by Emma Irvine, Ian Irvine, Bodhi Small, Emily Talpey and Robert Wilson. These plays are also student directed. The second act will feature Jesse Brooks’, THE GREAT BANK ROBBERY (a working title). This play will be our entry for the Maine H.S. – One Act Drama Festival.
A highlight from our rehearsal process was the opportunity to explore some new acting techniques with guest artist Carmen-Maria Mandley. During this playful, high energy workshop we unleashed our inner clowns. We were encouraged to “go big” physically, keep the stakes high, make things “matter more” and work together. The day wrapped up with “The Best, Worst Dance and Clowning Contest”. The reward? Laughter!
We know these skills will be in high demand on stage, in the fast paced, larger than life comedy that is, THE GREAT BANK ROBBERY (a working title).
We are excited to share it all with you!
