As you read this blog, I must warn that you will find, honest thoughts, ambitions, and hopes from my mind.
So, it’s been a week since my last blog post. I can never apologise to you all enough for doing that to you! My excuse is I have been so ill and busy with rehearsals for my A Level Drama performance that when I’ve finally got out of my costume and rid my face of makeup, I have just flopped onto my bed and fallen asleep straight away. This excuse, of course, is still no reason for me to have neglected you all for an entire week. I offer to you my most humblest apologies, and if you continue to peruse through my blog and do not withdraw your subscription, then I am eternally grateful for your forgiveness and belief in me.
As I said, I have been doing many rehearsals for my Drama A Level performance. Tonight was the practice performance. We had a selected audience of about 60 people, made up by our peers or teachers. This was the first time we would perform the entire play in front of our people without any stops. Even our teacher hadn’t seen a whole run through without any breaks in between. We. Were. Terrified.
Thankfully, the play went amazingly. Our makeup and costumes looked fantastic. Our movements were slick and fast. Our timing was exceptional. Our voices were powerful and emotional. Our relationships within the group stood fast when we most needed them to, and we put on an amazing show. Obviously, it wasn’t perfect – a few minor tweaks here and there will be needed before the actual exam next Friday, but for a practice performance, it was incredible. I feel extremely proud to say I am in the only group to ever perform Steven Berkoff’s ‘Metamorphosis’, as my group were exceptionally brilliant.
I realise that I haven’t gone into too much detail as to what the play was actually about, or what we did. This was intentional, beautiful people of the Internet, believe it or not! I shall tell you all the details after my exam next Friday, as I’m sure things are bound to change before the exam, so I want to be able tell you all about the end result of 7 months hard work! So, if you want to know more, make sure to check back on this blog next Friday! Bet you can’t wait, eh?
Well, my dear readers, again, I am truly so sorry for my unexpected absence! I will try to not let it happen again! Much love to you all. Good night.
