Finally, we have a day’s break between our last rehearsal and tech week! We’ve got most of our main props together, and all of our furniture. We’ve reworked any blocking that various changes in the stage during the set building process have messed with, and we’re nearly ready to go.
We’re coming along slowly but surely. The last few rehearsals have been adjusting me to the functionality of a character outside of the main story. Through the numerous times I’ve looked through my script, learning my lines and how I’m supposed to be moving, I’ve noticed that a great deal of them are transitional lines, meant to help one scene flow easily into the next. However, I do have lines that are not one-paragraph traditional scene changing lines; they actually have their own scene importance.
So my name is Victoria and here I am again in another production for Theatre Westminster. Last year, I had the pleasure of acting in The Walls, and this year I’ve been cast as Chelsea, aka the Narrator (or the voice of the author) in Theatre Westminster’s production of Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen.
