Costuming Begins

Costumes are the first impression that you have of the character before they open their mouth-it really does establish who they are.
Colleen Atwood

And with that in mind, we had our first costuming meeting where we brainstormed ideas and came up with our initial plan.

Then at our weekly group meeting we unpacked the various collection of costumes and fabric that we already have and bounced our ideas of the rest of the actors. Everyone is excited about the possibilities.

For some initial ideas of what we are considering you can check out a few of our Pinterest boards here, here, and here.

The Beginning

January 27, 2013 in 2013 Henry V

After the casting announcements were made, the troupe met just before Christmas for their over-the-holidays assignment.

Each actor needed to mark out the metre for their poetry lines and then to translate their parts into modern English.

At our first meeting in January, the actors read through their modern English lines. Many of the actors had used modern day slang and the read through was most enjoyable.

This past week, we had our first complete read through in the original Shakespearean. It took just over an hour, well with in our time range.
