The grade I get as the result of my drama performance is not as fulfilling as what I have expected. The drama performance did not work out as well as our daily practices and rehearsals, which might be caused by our heightened tension and anxiety during the final performance, and our group's disorganization for not being very well-prepared. Since we lack of group members, we tend to be disorganized in arranging the characters, and memorizing the play lines. We especially have difficulties in memorizing the lines, particularly for the main characters to memorize (Romeo and Juliet), since the script lines is unceasingly too long for us to memorize. In order to make it easier to memorize, we should have cut more unnecessary parts of the script lines, that mainly contained in the love scenes, where the conversation between Romeo and Juliet were mostly unnecessary and unceasingly long, which makes it harder for the main characters to learn their lines.

We did not quite utilize the given times in class affectively, since we mostly do the rehearsals, rather than using the given times to learn our lines. Such a disorganization have resulted in a not very satisfying overall drama performance, especially since our group lack of teamwork, which is one of the most important part that affect our performance. As for my own individual performance, cannot be said as satisfying enough, because I lack of practice on my own learning, besides the group work. In order to improve our drama performance, we should have to be more organized and well-planned, and have more practices in our own individual learning. 

Drama performance

The final drama performance was not satisfying enough. Our group members did not really learn our lines well, and were not well-prepared for the performance. This might be caused by the drama lines is unceasingly long for us to memorize. We should have cut more unnecessary parts of the dialogue line to make it easier to learn. In order to improve our drama performance, we should have more practice in memorizing and learning the lines.

Last drama rehearsal

Today is the last drama rehearsal for our group, where we are given the last chance to practice our drama play. We tried to put our best effort in practicing this drama rehearsal, since this is the last chance for us to practice the play altogether. The rehearsal went pretty well, our group already know the flow of the drama, and doing pretty well, when we rehearsed the whole drama scene in front of Mrs. Sam. But we still need to put a lot of effort in memorizing our lines for the drama, in order to improve the performance.

Play the whole drama scene

First of all, we practiced act 4 & 5 for the rehearsal. Then we showed to Mrs. Sam the whole drama scene continuously from the very beginning of the act, to the end. The rehearsal was far from satisfactory, since it crosses the time boundary limit of 15 minutes, and our group members were not prepared in memorizing the lines. With only 1 more English lesson left, we are going to practice our best for the play, and memorizing the lines.

10 May

We did another drama rehearsal. This time, we did a rehearsal for act 3 to act 5, where I played as the nurse, who told Romeo about Juliet's death. So far, our group have not make any necessary improvement for the play. We have not memorizing the lines fluently, and still lack of expression. There are still a lot of things to to fix/practice for the drama, and for the actions.

Play Rehearsal, Act 1 & 2

Today we're rehearsing act 1 & act 2 play, where I'm playing as the nurse's character, the supporting character, and as the narrator. In act 1, Romeo meets Juliet for the first time and fell in love with each other. While in act 2, Romeo sneaked into Capulet's orchard, to meet Juliet. The rehearsal was not quite satisfying, since my group members have not memorize most of the lines, and lack of expression. but with more practice and rehearsal, we aim for a better play.

Fixing the final script

Last night, on 4 May, I fixed the final script for the last time. I just include some narration lines, to describe the different parts of the scenes, and to comprehend the action parts, just to make the script more understandable and detailed. Finally, the script get printed and distributed for each members of the group. Before started to practice the script, we organized and compiled the musics for the play first.
