Shakespeare had/has more swag than everyone… He should have signed his name $hakespeare.
I did As You Like It over the summer. I was Celia, Rosalind’s cousin, so I got to wear a ton of pretty princess dresses<3
The language/line delivery/conveying the concept of the show was challenging. It was the first time I had ever read Shakespeare and I had to perform it, YIKES!
But my director was fabulous. She helped us every step of the way. She really did a great job of bringing the actors AND the audience into this little world we all created together.
Shakespeare is genius. I mean, his plays are brilliant, and he honestly has some of the most complex and engaging characters in literature history.
Acting is something I’ve been doing since I was about 11/12ish. I’ve done about nine or ten productions or so. I just love performing! It’s one of my favorite things to do, and such an interesting method of storytelling!I think acting is so great because you can literally be anything, which is so liberating. I could talk about it all day! I actually have auditions for another show on Monday, yayy!
“Doth? That sounds like broth. Hahaha broth. CAMBELLS CHICKEN NOODLE POSSIBILITIES”
“What is that thing he’s clicking? Is he typing?” (They were referring to the typewriter onstage.)
“I have no idea what’s going on.”
“Wow, dude did you see that? HE JUST THREW THAT SWORD. THAT WAS SO BADASS.”
“Oh so that girl with Prospero, that’s his wife? His girlfriend?” (Ahhh no, try daughter :])
“Hahaha look they’re drunk.”
“So that Prospero guy, he was a wizard? Or a sorceror or whatever? Like Harry Potter?”

BUT THE SHOW WAS SO GOOD GUYS
