#AprilFeelsDay2017 recap

I experience #romanceclass events in a different way. For maybe the past 3 events we merged live reading rehearsal day with actual event day (they used to be separate), so that means a few hours before the actors do their thing I’m with them somewhere else as they rehearse. This means I don’t see or experience half of what’s going on at the event. I read the recaps and see the posts though and I’m glad people are having fun? Haha. Thank you, everyone, for making #romanceclass what it is.

Rehearsal is somewhere else and it’s paper and highlighters, eyewear, looking up how words are pronounced, summarizing novels, suggesting how to say certain things, figuring out the order like a playlist. It’s fun work. It’s still amazing to me how it goes from this, to the actual performance. Educators, let me just say — this exercise has taught me so much about writing and connecting to readers. Plus fun. I already said that.

As usual, the live readings were a highlight. Featuring Gio Gahol, Rachel Coates, Migs Almendras, Graie So, Vanya Castor, Fred Lo, and Sam Aquino. AndΒ we got to do something new this time: our first M/M and F/F readings! Major props to Gio, Fred, Sam, and Rachel, for being part of this milestone for our group.
