The weeks have gone by and the class as a whole has tremendously progressed in both the memorization of their lines and also in becoming more comfortable with their characters. They have added personal traits and behavioral characteristics. Yesterday we visualized our “lives” and then wrote our biographies or autobiographies, most of which included just the kinds of details that helped us bring our characters to life. One of our stage managers, a former Deadhead, was born in Fargo, ND, another, named “Chrysanthemum,” is a runaway. My Dr. Gibbs, a native San Franciscan and son of a doctor, was not a popular kid in school, and had a younger sister who received most of the family attention.
Costumes are being designed for each character based on their profession or role in the play, as well as the personality that comes with it. The flashy and eccentric costumes ascend the play to a completely new level allowing the students and audience to live into the fashion style of the 70’s and 80’s. If you remember that era, you will surely enjoy the look of Our Town: San Francisco. So, plan to come to Dance Mission Theater on May 30, 31, or June 1.
