Week 5 means it was audition week for both of our ensembles! Auditions are serious business, but we always try to shake off some of the nerves with a good warmup and (in classic ABLE Ensemble style) a serious dance party!
Our ensembles got in touch with both their wild and emotional sides in class this week with a tiger-themed dance party for our Friday class, and an impressive game of "Character Squares" for our Monday class!
What does our Friday class think Scrooge will do with his newfound change-of-heart? Pay for everyone to get their braces off, save Tiny Tim, and throw the biggest holiday party Victorian England has ever seen!
This was a big week for our ensemble. After spending the first several weeks of class learning all of the characters and events in TWELFTH NIGHT, this week our ensemble got the chance to audition for their favorite roles.
We hope you've been enjoying our series by ABLE founder and director, Katie Yohe, about the process of adapting Shakespeare texts for our ensemble. In the third and final installment, she gives us an overview of the rehearsal and editing process.
