The Millar Report 2

Joey Millar continues his account of the Actiontrack week (performance tomorrow night) :-

ActionTrack Day 2

Today, we had the challenging job of mixing the many, many stories we had created yesterday, into one giant, play-friendly tale. We spent a large period of time brainstorming. Stories and ideas were thought up, mixed around, and often completely inverted. The future plan could go either way, we still aren't sure in which direction our play is headed. At the stage, we are in as much confusion as you are!

Another aspect of today's work was the creation of seven wonder-hit songs. We completed, and improved the songs we had started yesterday, and, come evening, we had lyrics, and indeed dance moves to many of our songs.

See you soon.

Day 3

The very look of our play made considerable progress, as we decided upon the set design, and costumes today. Today was also the day that we finally completed the storyline and decided on who would play which part. While I won't go into specifics (it would ruin the surprise!), I will reluctantly leak this - you will never see the common cup of tea in the same way...

After three days' constant acting, you will have to forgive me if I sign off here. I have to get my much-needed beauty sleep, and now that I think of it, a cup of tea wouldn't be bad either...
