The Trojan Horse - Newsletter #4

I have been revamping my website and in the meanwhile I lost access to my emails to addresses @haoexpression.org. If you have sent me an email through these addresses and have not seen a reply from me, please send again. 
For now please use haoexpression@gmail.com to correspond with me.

The show program is ready for print, please ask the children to check their names on  page 2 of the program and let me know if any think needs to be change. The program is on http://www.haoexpression.org/students.html

On the new website I've added a page for Students to check for late news. The page is accessible through a button "Students Page" at foot page of the website www.haoexpression.org
On the Students page, you will also find the Script, the theater day schedule, and more useful info.

Photos and videos are allowed for this performance for family and friends. Please do not use flash! I'd need to have some good pictures for public information purpose. If you are willing to take photos or videos for the entire show and share them to me please contact me. 

This week the children take home a HaoExpression bag with 7 complimentary show tickets, costumes and props that they'll need for the show, 1st layer brown if they need from us. 
At the end of the performance, please help them put back everything in the bag and return it to Serena Lueckhoff. We'll give them out again for the August show.
The children may keep the brown 1st layer for $10, additionally to the $15 performance material fee. All other costumes and props must be returned. 

During this school year the children have learned to find goodness within themselves, to find strength within quietness, and to bounce off of each other. They've made huge progress in expression and I hope you will enjoy the show, and will be proud of them. I am.

Happy Expressing!

All Cast Rehearsals

All is encouraged to attend class on Monday 6/1 4-5pm for an all cast rehearsal.

Work Ethics

I'd like to see the students coming to class ready to start, with hair tied up. 
They should remember to bring their script to class.
The script can be accessed on HaoExpression website, at the bottom of Acting page.
Please also try to be on time, attending warm up is important to becoming an expressive actor.

Private coaching

It takes inner strength and quiet self confidence to be an expressive actor. 
Each of the children and teen comes in with their own gifts and weaknesses. At this point of the training, most of the Friday students could use some private lessons to enhance their stage presence ans showmanship.
