"Last rehearsal for Base Instruments reading"

Last night we had our final rehearsal for our staged reading of Base Instruments with Bare Bones at Theatre@First! For most of our rehearsal process, we practiced in pieces, doing scenes not in sequence but the ones that had the same actors. So last night was the first time I got to hear them do the entire piece in order.


Elizabeth Hunter reading as Mrs. Hawking and Samantha LeVangie as Miss Zakharova in Base Instruments

You never really know how a play’s going to work until actors read it, and I’m really lucky to have this talented cast. All of them have some level of experience with their characters and familiarity with this world, and that allows them to make best use of their abilities. Some of them, like Samantha LeVangie and Eric Cheung, do multiple accents, often switching one scene after another!

The staged reading of Base Instruments by Phoebe Roberts will go up on June 10th at 8PM at with the Bare Bones reading series, brought to you by Theatre@First.

Marauder's Era RPG
Since the reign of Grindelwald in the 1940's, pureblood traditions have rapidly digressed. The suppression of muggles and muggleborns lead to an extreme alteration in lifestyle. This can be clearly seen by those who uphold the old ways.

Where students were once indoctrinated into magical culture, they are now highly influenced by muggle philosophy and religion. We no longer teach muggleborn students pureblood etiquette, but instead teach children with magical upbringing muggle studies. Primordial and ritualistic magics have been abolished, labelled as dark, and Judao-Christian holidays have replaced the ancient Sabbaths. In place of Yule or Samhain, we find Christmas and Halloween. Elemental magic has become taboo. Our mannerisms and customs have been classified as archaic.

Lord Voldemort's pro-pureblood movement quickly gained support from the ancient wizarding families. He promised to restore honor to the noble houses. But when his methods failed, what began as a political faction was revealed to be a hate group. Now, their tactics have deteriorated into terrorism.

Many of those who once believed in his cause have attempted to distance themselves from the revolution, only to find that abdiction comes at the greatest of costs. Those who outwardly rebel are executed. Any who dare refuse his service are coerced into doing his bidding, or disposed of all together. The Ministry of Magic is on the brink of collapse.

But from the ashes of the debilitated community, a few vigilantes rise to fight against him. The Order of the Phoenix, lead by Albus Dumbledore, battles for dominance.

Welcome to war. Which side will you find yourself on?

... is this spam? It certainly *appears* to be drive-by comment-spam -- possibly interesting to some of breakinglight11's friends, but weirdly inappropriate to this post. Unless she specifically invited it, it makes me think *much* less of the game...
