"Then lead the way, good father; and heavens so shine, That they may fairly note this ACT of mine!" ~Twelfth Night

***The Perfomrance of Twelfth Night will be held at the church on 1051 East 200 North in OREM.***
Here goes nothing! I signed up for a workshop with the Grassroots Shakespeare Company this upcoming weekend. We will be doing a one hour cut of William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. I am both excited and afraid. It has been way, way too long since I have acted. I've already started having nightmares that I show up to the performance completely unprepared and without memorization... but, I digress. So, wish me luck! And should any of you be in the mood for the Bard on Saturday, there is a FREE performance at 9PM. (Did I mention that it's only one hour? Because it's only one hour, and there's pretty much NOWHERE else that you can see a Shakespearean play in only one hour. And plus it's free. FREE!) I'm not sure where it is yet, but I will update this soon and let ya'll know.

A little background on Grassroots:
1-You sign-up via e-mail.
2-Grassroots randomly assigns parts. Players receive a few scenes about 4 or 5 days before the workshop. They memorize their lines.
3-Players show up Saturday January 16th at 5pm ready to work hard and have a good time. They've read a synopsis of the play, they've done a bit of homework, and they've memorized their lines. They rehearse for a few hours, then they play.
4-They perform a fast paced and furiously funny one-hour cutting of Twelfth Night. All their friends and family come to see them perform. Good times all around.

Well that is an interesting way to go about Shakespeare. I personally think that anyone who can understand him is amazing.
