by Guest Blogger: Elizabeth Porsella - May 19, 2016

The next day, at our weekly rehearsal, we practiced the Duloc number again while blocking the show. When we tried, everything we had learned in the morning practice had gone out the window. We remembered the steps, we just couldn't remember the order. It didn't help that the girl playing Lord Farquaad was absent. She yells out words like "Boom!" "Bam!" "Pow!" Each word has a step happening at the same time. The words help us remember when each step happens and which step we have to do. (more...)
