14 Nov A great Music Workshop with Tom Gray
Posted at 11:36h in Andy's Blog
Here is this week’s drama entry. Hope you all enjoy it.
Today in drama the only visitor was Tom Gray (musician), and those not there were Zena, Soufyan and Nick Walenski.
We started by talking about the Freewheelers’ Film Night at Dorking Halls last Wednesday. Those who went (including myself) said it was a very good evening’s entertainment. It was liked by Freewheelers who attended, and their relatives, friends and members of the general public .
Some of the films like the World War One films and others were popular. Brandon then said the performance of Do Not Disturb (our next production) is on January 21st at The Nomad Theatre, East Horsley, Surrey – I think in the evening?
Brandon then show us films of pictures in the sand at various coastal towns – of soldiers or other people who helped during World War I. It was organised by Danny Boyle; each person who was drawn ‘did their bit’ for the town their picture was drawn at. We all thought they were good.
Next Brandon showed us all pictures of a hotel in Brooklands, Surrey for one of the scenes from Do Not Disturb. It’s when the people who come to the rooms to change the bedding and bathroom items walk in on Robbie in the shower, and in shock Robbie falls over and ends up in a coma in hospital. Brandon also showed some medical outfits for the show; they looked good. Then a warm up session with Andrea. We then did the movements for the play, organised by Andrea. We then had some lunch.
In the afternoon we had Tom Gray’s Music Workshop, with two songs – one called Counting Sheep and the other The Argument Song. We alternated between them both. They were both very good and fun to sing.
In conclusion I think today went well and I hope all those who were there will agree.
