From the Stage: SET, PROPS, AND MUSIC!
Another productive and exciting week of Big Green Theater rehearsals at The Bushwick Starr! We continued blocking pieces from both PS 75 and PS 305, and started incorporating original songs written by the fourth graders! Composer Julia May Jonas, with help from song orchestrators Eben Hoffer and Wes Zurick, guided the cast in realizing the playwrights’ songs in creative, lyrical ways!
We spent a lot of time this week establishing the world in which the plays are set, and experimenting with ways to meaningfully portray all of the diverse species represented in the plays. We also started incorporating more set pieces, props, and sound design!
