After a meeting on Monday morning, we have united our action plans due to the show being very close and as we are a large group, we need to ensure we are all working together. I have posted a reflective journal on this meeting in the link:
Changes to the week before:
Week 11: As of today, we have agreed that on Friday morning, we will have a stumble run of the show, as this was decided today, I have not mentioned this in any action plans, other than the wish for us to all get together and run the show. Another change will be another ‘Rebel’ rehearsal together on Wednesday at 11:30.
Week 12: The only change that will be made for this week will be to add the fact that on Friday, we will be having another run through, this time it will be a proper run through and not a stumble run so we know what we have to do for next week.
Week 13: I now have a specific first schedule on what the plan is for rehearsing this week, this may change but I will list specific days in the table.

|11/13||08.05.17||After having a meeting on the morning of Monday 8th, we have all decided to unite our actions plans. In this meeting, we have arranged to have a rehearsal with the entire year group to run over ‘Rebel’, we were able to split the song into parts and create a round last week, now we need to get together again and clean anything that we need to. Personally, I need to keep listening to the song and practice my part out loud to ensure that I am getting the part correct without signing the riff. This will then be good for Friday morning at 10am where the group will meet again with the tutors to have a stumble run of the piece. We will run the piece as written in the script with the pieces and links, we will then be able to look at any weak links that have not been spotted before and work out any other issues. Personally, I would like to look more into Ruby’s character and do some research on her airhead personality while also researching Saint Joan’s costume. I will aim to have a meeting with Alex one lunchtime about our ideas for her costume. Before Friday, I think that it will be a good idea to have a Shopping and F***ing rehearsal off book so we can start developing our character’s relationship, having a discussion on this as well.||In order to have a stumble through of the show, we will need a large room, such as the dance studio to go over everything as that room has markings on which part of the stage is where for the theatre. We will also need a room for our Shopping and F***ing rehearsal with a good space so that we do not get used to being clumped together. As for meetings regarding costume, I will only need a small room or a small, quiet space to discuss without distractions. For the stumble run, we will require not only the cast but also tutors for feedback and help to get the show together, as we have arranged this, we do not have to worry about any clashing timetables. I have arranged with Alex a meeting one lunchtime because it would be best for him as it is his only free time available at the moment. As of Monday morning, I have had my Shopping and F***ing costume approved by Leah, so I will keep that in college and hang that on the rail for Saints and Sinners. If there is anything for my Saint Joan costume which I cannot find at home or at college, we may need funds to get something. In order to complete further research, I will require a computer with internet access in order to get everything I need.|
|12/13||15.05.17||As I have mentioned through all of my action plans over time, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will be dedicated to Bonnie and Clyde rehearsals which runs from Wednesday 17th-Saturday 20th May. Therefore, I will not be able to rehearse any Saints and Sinners pieces, therefore, by this time, I need to ensure I know what I am doing regarding where I am throughout the show, lines and costume. I need to have my costume sorted by this Friday as we will be having a dress run, which will be our final run before the rehearsals in the theatre. If the last week has gone to plan, then I should have had my lines learned and know what I am doing. For Bonnie and Clyde, I think that it would be a good idea to market the show to the audience by putting posters in the brochures and on the bistro tables. I will also aim to post the trailer and the link to tickets online.||For the run through on Friday, we will not be able to run in the theatre because of the Bonnie and Clyde set, but we will need a large room to run through everything with markings of the theatre, which the dance studio has, we will need all cast members and the tutors. Friday will be our dress rehearsal, therefore, I need to make sure I have my clothes for both characters and my character shoes before Friday to have at college.|
|13/13||22.05.17||This final week will be production and show week, Monday will not have a rehearsal in the theatre due to the technicians taking down the Bonnie and Clyde set and rigging the lights. But Tuesday will be focused on technical rehearsals with a dress rehearsal happening on Wednesday. I need to make sure that my costume is on the Saints and Sinners rail and I know when I am on and off stage. I can also get last minute marketing purposes sorted by posting on social media. The shows will be on Wednesday and Thursday evening, which afterwards, I need to write my 1,000 minimum evaluation. I will aim to get this completed by Friday 2nd June.||The technical and dress rehearsal will be happening in the theatre to run the show, if I need to go over any pieces, then I will need a rehearsal space. We will have a changing room for the show week, where I will need my costume all on the rail. The cast and staff members will all be focused on the show for this week, but I need to take into consideration that the tutors will be in the theatre over seeing technical and dress rehearsals. For the evaluation, I will need a computer with internet access in either the library or a computer room, I am hoping to come into college during the holidays to get my work completed in good time. Then if there is anything missing, I can make changes and any last minute adaptations.|
