Rehearsal in Epcor's Motel Theatre

Sunday's rehearsal was the first to be held in the Epcor Centre's Motel theatre, where the play will be performed later this week. The actors and directors worked out the blocking for this new space, taking advantage of the depth of the stage area. Finally, the cast did a run-through of the entire play, with sound, to the delight of all of us lucky enough to be there!

During yesterday's rehearsal, Susan presented some of the cast with their costumes for the first time. Oedipus, Corinthian, and Teiresias modeled their beautiful outfits, and we talked over some of the details.. including Corinthian's ultra-modern shoes.




After working on line memorization and articulation, Oedipus and Creon dress-rehearsed a scene, working out some of the action details. The costumes and movement really made the intense scene come alive! I especially liked watching Oedipus' intimidating, king-like postures smoothly fall away as he became more humble toward the end of the scene.

Finally, we celebrated Pat's new job!
