On Wednesday the 20th of November, there was a rehearsal for people who had signed up to play minor roles in the production. They started off with and spent a lot of time on acting exercises. This involved everyone walking around in circles pretending to be some sort of animal. They then began looking at the different characters that were needed- cowboys, saloon girls, prospectors and towns people. We set up a stage areas and everyone was given one of the four characters. They then practised different situations in character from the first scene of the musical.
After spending time on this, Mrs C asked everyone to sit in a circle to discuss the different roles and pick which role everyone wanted to be. She left the room so that they would decide themselves, saying that they wouldn't decide anything
with her there.
