The Servant of Two Masters — First Look
We invite you to take a look at what is happening behind the scenes during rehearsals for our next show.
Katelyn Spurgin, Stage Manager – “This rehearsal process has been a learning process for everyone. Commedia is rarely done, so the cast had to learn it in very little time. It is very physical, so the actors warm up everyday vocally and physically. We cover acrobatics and fights, and each person must stay in character the entire time. They all have specific walks and vocal intonations, and have to be able to improv on a dime. Add that to what a regular rehearsal would look like with blocking and memorizing, and you see that the actors (and crew!) have a lot of things to remember at one time. Each rehearsal is different because of the style, and the actors come up with new things every day. An extra week was added to the rehearsal block of time for this very purpose. They have all come very far from breaking away from the realism that is taught in both Acting 1 and 2.”
