CALENDAR FOR "LEGALLY BLONDE"

Good Rehearsal Practices:

When you see that you are on the schedule to learn a new song or new choreography/blocking, you should get as familiar as you can with the song/scene before that date. Get yourself 80-100% memorized on the song we are working on, and 100% memorized on any dialogue in any scenes we are blocking, in advance of that rehearsal.

That will help us move a lot faster, so that we can concentrate on fine-tuning or assigning harmonies instead of working from scratch. It will also help blocking a scene to move much faster if you're memorized and not holding your script!

By the way... part of preparation IS KNOWING WHAT YOUR SONG/SCENE IS ABOUT!!! :)

Don't skip this very important step --- make sure you look up any vocab words/phrases/concepts you don't understand. 

When we review previously taught material, our expectation is for you to be OFF BOOK and have retained what we learned the last time. In order for you to retain what you've learned, you will need to PRACTICE regularly at home!!!  Thank you!

Because of what's happening with the quarantine, we will be recording

rehearsal tracks and choreo/blocking videos for you, and posting them right here. 

DO YOUR BEST, AND PLEASE PUT THE TIME IN... WE ARE ALL COUNTING ON YOU TO BE REHEARSING AT HOME EVERY DAY!

REHEARSAL SCHEDULE FOR LEGALLY BLONDE:
CHECK BACK HERE REGULARLY!  Sometimes it changes... check often!

PLEASE READ: ******HOW TO HAVE THE BEST ZOOM REHEARSAL:*********

* Please have nice bright lighting on your face. NOT BACK LIT. We can't adequately see you if your light source is behind your back!

 * PRACTICE BEFORE YOUR ZOOM REHEARSAL. Use the exact instrumental tracks that we are using in our show. 

(For Cast A/B that's with the MTI Player. For Cast C/D thats with the tracks in the google drive.)

* Please be memorized for the scene or song we are working on. 

* HANDS FREE. No script. Props are okay. 

* Set up your camera and your space beforehand so we have the option to rehearse STANDING or SITTING. Have a chair handy.

* Have your song queued up already, on your phone. 

* Chera will give you blocking ideas during your rehearsal. WRITE THEM ALL DOWN (with a pencil) as she gives them to you!

March 22-28

DURING THE WEEK OF MARCH 22nd-28th:

EVERYONE:

* Review all choreography and music learned

* Work on memorizing your lines and music - even if we haven't started working on your song/scene yet. 

* Using the contact list, FaceTime your scene partners and run your lines/songs. You can also do it with your counterpart.

* Text me costume photos 

Character Presentations (please video yourself and send to Sierra) :  MARGOT & SERENA, PILAR AND KATE

SUNDAY March 22: 

Using the instrumental backing track, please record yourself singing these songs (as best you can). 

Please don't do choreography with these vids, unless you are ready to do full-out choreo and sing at the same time.

Then text (not email) me the video. (818) 915-8527. 

When Graham watches it, he will make notes on it so that when he Zooms with you, he can work on giving you notes on anything that was incorrect, and also any technique issues. We think this is the best way for now to save time, and we imagine a lot of the leads already know their songs and don’t need him to break down every line.
