|Sponsor's #1 Piece of Advice Your biggest obstacle with Ensemble Acting is simple to understand and challenging to commit to solving: Rehearsal Time. The bigger your group, the bigger the chance that one of two things is going to happen: a) someone will mentally check out and stop rehearsing or argue to reduce your rehearsals, as in: "we're good we don't have to rehearse anymore"; b) schedule conflicts will arise. Work only with people who have proven reliability - and even then, beware! Ensemble groups from other schools at Districts are extremely organized and this is a very, very competitive event.||
"The only thing that I can say is: Don't do what I did. My group did the
most practicing 20 minutes before we went up. Yeah... we did bad. Practice
hard. Ensembles are probably the most fun to practice with. You get to meet
up with a few of your best friends and act. What could be better?"
--Sean Davies ('06)
"If there is anything I have learned from ensembles it is that you have to know what you're doing. Everything about your act has to be completely flawless, from the way you move your hands to the way you talk. Diction was a big problem for our troupe and especially my group. Pick your material early. Practice as often as possible. But most of all, have fun, that's what acting is all about"
