It was an early Saturday morning and we were rehearsing our piece for the Freshman One-Acts. Three freshman actors and two sophomore directors- one happy family. Yet, it was 10am, we hadn’t had coffee and honestly, we weren’t feeling it. Happens to the best of us, you just get stuck in monotony. So Erin, my co-director, and I look at each other and realize something had to be done! We gave them what was arguably the best note we said during the entire thing: Try silly. If there’s any opportunity to have more fun with it, go for it. If there’s any chance to do something different, give it a shot. If you can change anything in this play to make it more entertaining for you, do it. And honestly, the result was magical.
