The ESM Players are wishing everyone a very merry Christmas, happy holidays and all the best for 2020!
As you can see, we now have a mascot and his name is: William P. Quackspeare. This jolly guy will follow us on our rehearsals, he may even report on some of our adventures with the Bard. You may wonder what the P stands for, well, wonder on! We will only lift this secret at our premiere in March, so come and see us then!
What else have we been up to?
Well, for a start, we have now blocked all scenes of Romeo & Juliet and can now start working on details. Well, first however, we’ll take a short break, but when we’re back in January, the actors will be off book and can dive into bringing their characters to life, all hands free (apart from those moments that they hold daggers, guns, or poison…). The fight scenes all have been securely blocked and tested now as well. And of course, we have started on selecting costumes — in January we’ll bring you a first glimpse of them.
Apart from that we had some fun with some of those stage-corpses…
