On Thursday I went to the Globe Theatre to see ROH and JC perform. I was looking forward to going there, but on foot, not in a wheelchair. I had to go in a wheelchair because I had hurt my back. (more…)

A trip to the Globe ROH’s side

HBL and ROH stood on Blackfriars bridge shouting abuse at each other oblivious of the people crossing the road to ovoid them. “Where’s the bridge gone”? ROH shouted at HBL “You’ve got us lost, “she barked back.                                         

To think that they were going to the Globe Youth Theatre to get acting lessons they had put on quite a performance.

They had left the hospital just an hour before. HBL wanting anything but to go, and ROH only going because he had been threatened by his mother. She had threatened that she would cut him off from his credit card. ROH refused to do anything remotely active and insisted that they both take a cab. But HBL had insisted that they walk, saying that it was only a short walk.

After about an hour of walking and numerous arguments they arrived at the Globe with sour faces and tired bodies. Luckily there was a Starbucks outside and they were able to refuel.  They walked into the Globe to find a bunch of 25 year old students. So frantically they both ran out Starbucks in hand. After mustering up the courage, they walked back in to find that the students were just tourists. 

By the time they got back KJ (the head of the youth theatre) had arrived and was waiting for them. She asked questions like how they were and was there any change at the hospital. They told her that they were both fine and that there was no change at the hospital. She then left to talk to other staff. So HBL and ROH were left sitting their own making each other more nervous.

When it was finally time to go in they were so nervous that they were both shaking.  They sat down together like conjoined twins. They both were determined not to look like they were having too much fun. Both HBL and ROH were starting to relax until the group leaders said the worst thing they could. They said that mobile phones are banned. So as fast as they could I phone’s and Blackberry’s went under their clothingAfter countless name games and ROH still not remembering any one’s name they finally gave up. And were taken on a tour of the Globe and they were told that they would be singing on the stage. ROH and HBL looked  at each other in pure shock.

When they got back to the classroom they were asked to act out how they got to the Globe. They both burst out in laughter so loud that everyone looks at them. So they did exactly what they hade been asked to do they start shouting at each other.

After watching everyone left go home. The homework was to bring back a song that best described togetherness.

About Masks Designs

Hello Everyone

I hope  you are all well just to let you guys know i will be coming in on Thursday to see what your masks designs are so we will be starting making the masks on Friday the 21st. Below is a list of things that i would love you guys to do before the Friday session:

  • Have your designs ready for Thursday you should start your designs at home as i know you will  not be able to do them in your class room session so what would be helpful is to choose the text you want to work on and base your design on that piece of text. I guess you can concentrate on the feeling the text gives you a paticular image ie forest theme etc……..
  • if you do not want to draw your design than bring in something esle like images you like or magazine cuttings you must have everything done for the Thursday the 20th so i will look at them and discuss with you about your designs
  • Think of the colours you want your masks to be wright down on your designs how you want the mask to look like and what textures you want.
  • we are going to be making full face masks as Kate has told me from the globe, so please design something that is to cover the whole face also you can extend the masks in any was long ways, or side ways to change the shape. the masks do not have to be in a shape of your face if you are wanting them to be different shapes than you can. As we will be building ontop of the masks.
  • please have a look at my website if you want to look at images of masks my website is www.scruffychicken.com and you can look under the section of ‘noah the musical’ or the ‘puppet making workshops’ or just browse the whole site. To look at the images just leep on pressing the arrow on the picture to the right hand side.
  • if you want to collect any materials that you think would work with your masks than please do anything you can think of that can make your masks 3D like recycled materials, ie bottle tops, toilet rolls etccccc………….

OK Guys good luck with everything and if there are any questions than you can leave a comment here.

Take care and look forward to running the session with you next Friday I shall see you all next Thursday
