Children's Theatre / by Sarah Deller

It's so odd not to have rehearsal! So far it's been nice, though. I've been working on other things! 

Our class is going to be performing a children's play at a local elementary school. Nick and I worked on adapting a story over the break, and a couple nights ago I adapted another book into a longer play. I only had one night to adapt it, and it was the most wonderful experience. It had been so long since I'd completed writing anything at all (as Henri will tell you) and it was incredible to sit down and simply write. Of course, I had the advantage that some of the material was provided for me, so not all of it was original content. But what was so incredible was being so committed to just one thing for seven hours. Starting something, and then finishing it. It was a great way to start off the new year, actually.
