Group Meeting/Rehearsal

I am arranging a day on the 2nd April where we can all get together, go through the script, sign costumes, get measured for costumes, meet crew etc. It is really important for you to come and attend this day in Egham as it will be our only chance before rehearsals begin.

I have greatly enjoyed meeting you all over the past few weeks and am delighted with the level of engagemnet you have all showed despite having very busy schedules. The production is shaping up very well-both ceatively and in terms of design and planning the finer details (accomodation/travel etc).

When the contact list arrives please feel free to meet up and discuss, go through the text/characters with other cast members. Many of you live in North London and thus this ought not be too difficult, the more work we put into the project now, the better it will be. I implore upon you the importanc of blogging your research and development through the process. It is such a valuable tool at our disposal and it would be a shame to waste it.

Please repsond to this message by hopefully confirming the 2nd, if this is truly impossible then please let me know also, as I understand it is relatively short notice. But getting to know each other before being thrust together for a hectic summer is vital.

(Laurence could you ring me asap please)

I have found the meetings extreamly insightful, and a very good way to iron out details of history of charecters and relatioships between each other. Since we have such a short rehersal time on our feet, these meetings I feel are just as good as rehersals and should be treated as such.

I'm good to meet on the 2nd.
I thoroughly enjoyed the first meeting, very much looking forward to getting stuck into rehearsals.

Incidentally, have just started reading "The Edwardians" by Vita Sackville-West, and by spooky coincidence the lead characters are called Viola & Sebastian....
