Geoffrey's Notes for the week of 9/23/07 to 9/30/07
Monday

Auditions started at the Theatre.

Teyla Emmagan arrived and auditioned. And unlike many people, was not terrible.

Wednesday

The ongoing torture of Geoffrey continued, and he offered Coreen a part in the play.

Thursday

Still more auditions. As Geoffrey continues to beat his head in.

John Sheppard arrived, auditioned, and was ruthlessly recruited to be Romeo.

Geoffrey offers Lana a chance to be Juliet. Kind of.

John and Lana become acquainted. So do John and Coreen.

Nathan Petrelli demands a recount. Or an explanation.

He meets Lana, who didn't vote for him. Being from Kansas and all.

Nathan rocked the audition, and Roy Cohn.

Friday

Coreen took a stab at explaining things to the cast and new arrivals.

Coreen and Lana, er, chatted?

John showed up late, and er, chatted with Lana. Or Coreen?

Saturday

Technical assessment of theater. With more stupid angel statues. And Coreen trying to deal with them.

We have rehearsals every day, but actors are not required to be present for all of them. Please arrive in the mornings, and we'll attempt to work around the 'day jobs' of our supporting cast.

Thank you!

Director's Notes (9/23/07) - First Week, pre-production
Geoffrey's Notes of Events inside and around the Theatre this week:

Saturday
Arrived. Shanghai'd into directing *Romeo & Juliet*. Panicked.

Sunday/Monday
Got a drink at the Quick and the Dead. Met Tor the bartender. Saw something very disturbing.

Met Coreen Fennel on the way back. Went to get burgers.

Monday
Coreen went looking for a phone, she said later.

Tuesday
Examined office. Was discouraged. Talked to Coreen about exit strategies.

Wednesday
Found world's creepiest Timex exhibit.

Hired Coreen to think about things I don't want to think about.

Thursday
Coreen planned to visit the gypsy camp. Hunh.

Friday
More prep work. Lana Lang Luthor arrived. May hire as costumer?

Saturday
Further planning and talking with Coreen, walking in the theater square.

Sunday
Missed Ellen like hell.

4th Wall Theatre: Audience, fans, Weekly OOC notes, and more
Welcome to the Audience!

This is the community you want to join if you are not able to participate in 4th Wall Theatre as Cast or Crew (weekly/daily interactions) but would like to be able to attend the performances in November, and interact during the play. Simply submit hit "join" and we'll approve you!

That said, while there is no application process for the Audience, there are some guidelines (see below) for participation.

Weekly OOC Director's Notes

Every week during rehearsals, Geoffrey's Notes for the play will be posted here on Sunday nights. This will be a list of links to the activities in the theatre during the previous week. A comment thread for further links will be posted for Outside the Playhouse, and players will be welcome to comment and drop links in that thread.

The Week's Events will also go up on Sunday night, stating the theme/goals of rehearsals and crew interaction that week, as well as the countdown of Days Until Performance.

A Critic's Commentary Post will be posted on Monday nights, for Audience members reading along to comment, Out of Character, on the ongoing rehearsals. Positive comments only, please; you may dislike a character, or how they're being portrayed, but a public comm is not the place for negative feedback on an ongoing RPG. Take it private, if you must.

As an Audience Member, you are not a member of the 4th Wall Theatre community, and can not comment on rehearsals except in the Critic's Commentary post here. You can, however, start 4th Wall -related posts in this comm, if you wish to discuss recent events, Shakespeare, the play being performed, or events within the City.

Abuse of other members of the comm, 4th Wall performers, Shakespeare or the participants will lead to the offending member being warned once, and banned on the second offense. This includes the aforementioned negative feedback or gross obscenity.

An AOL chatroom for 4thwall will be established for interaction during rehearsal weeks. Notes will be posted in this comm for scheduled chats which will allow Audience interaction.

Plot suggestions (serious, detailed, thought-out concepts) can be submitted to the Director for consideration. Speculation on plot ideas is fine in this comm, but keep in mind that just because you thought of it here, doesn't mean we didn't think of it first. Credit for ideas only applies to those e-mailed to the mods.
