I hope that some of you are planning to be at Houge Park on Wednesday and Sunday evenings to start rehearsing R&J scenes and speeches that we can present to Scott Handy. Here are some scenes/speeches that I recommend we try to do:
1. R&J monologues: Bianca, Marshall, Sharon
2. R&J scene between Abhi and Ananya (part of the long 2.2 scene)
3. Queen Mab scene
4. First Juliet/Nurse/Lady Cap scene
5. “Chopped logic” scene with Capulet, Juliet, Lady Cap, Nurse
6. Apothecary scene (Luke and Marshall)
7. One of the chorus speeches?
8. One of the fights, equipment permitting (Chris, any thoughts?)
Let me know if you have other ideas, or if you are unavailable to do this. Jake is unavailable this summer so we cannot do any of his scenes (in turn, we can’t do some of the Friar scenes).
Thanks.

Subject: Schedule for Scott Handy’s visit

Here is the tentative schedule for the next two weeks, covering Scott Handy’s visit and preparation for it. Scott arrives on July 8th and leaves on July 15th.

Important Notes:
1. The dates and times below are subject to change. Please be flexible and keep your schedules as open as possible.
2. If you would like to revive a scene or speech from Romeo and Juliet to present to Scott on July 13th, we need to rehearse it on one of the dates listed below. I will put together a short list of scenes and speeches that I would like us to present and let you know. In the meantime, you can send me your suggestions as well. Obviously this will require some coordination among the cast members involved. Keep me posted on your availability. If you cannot make the dates below, let’s work out a different time.
3. Parents and current company members who are not involved in The Merchant of Venice are welcome to audit the Merchant rehearsals. Think of these sessions as “master classes.” It’s great to watch Mr. Handy at work! (However, these sessions are not public; you must ask me before inviting anyone who is not on this mailing list.)

Subject: Mark your calendars for Scott Handy’s visit!

Hi everyone,
Just a quick note to let you know that Scott Handy arrives in San Jose on July 8th. Various meetings, workshops, and rehearsals will occur every day and/or evening from July 9th through July 14th (Tuesday through Sunday).

There will be opportunities for everyone in the group to meet and work with Scott. He would like to see some of the R&J scenes revived, and he would like to work with the Merchant of Venice cast. Like last year, we will have one or two sessions that are completely open to everyone in the group, including family members.

I will send more details later; in the meantime, please keep July 9th through 14th as open as possible on your calendars.

Thanks,
Mr. R.
