Behind the scenes at Orlando Shakespeare Theater

Photos and Autographs of Alexander and the Cast!

Alexander Who’s Not Not Not Not Not Going to Move is going swimmingly so far!  It’s a ton of fun, kids and parents alike are having a ball, and there’s even audience participation for aspiring stars.  Plus, if you get your tickets for weekend shows, you can meet the characters for autographs and pictures after the show!  I love talking to the kids about their favorite parts of the show, and they usually like the part about dog poop the best—that’s right, dog poop.  Yep, keepin’ things classy… call the box office for your tickets!  We only run until April 24th!

In other intern news, we’ve really started diving back into our Theater Business class.  It’s a twice-a-week class, but we had to tone down the workload a bit during Rep performances and rehearsals for Charm and Alexander.  Our schedule is much more regular now, and we’ve recently been focusing on things like how to build a business resume, how to speak well during job interviews, elements of audition scene work, how to audition with a reader, and much more.  These classes are incredibly beneficial, and they’re helping me hone and strengthen new skills, as well as skills I’d worked on in my undergrad (Go Bobcats!).

Finally, Playfest!  The Harriet Lake Festival of New Plays is almost upon us!  The readings and workshops have been cast and are rehearsing, we’re getting the Lowndes Shakespeare Center’s various performance spaces ready for guests, and the box office is taking ticket orders for all the readings, workshops, and special events—including a conversation with our Keynote Speaker, playwright Mark Brown.  His plays include Around the World in 80 Days and The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge, and his work has been produced on the off-Broadway stage.

Playfest! is going to be an amazing event that runs April 8-17 — download the pullout guide in this week’s Orlando Weekly for more details!
