This past week I concluded my 13th summer of attending rehearsals at the Theater At Monmouth. The theater in Monmouth, Maine is the designated Shakespearean theater of Maine. Over the years I have sat in on rehearsals of many plays by Shakespeare as well as other classical and modern playwrights. This has been a wonderful opportunity of watching a director work putting the text of a play to life on the stage with actors. During tech week, the whole production takes shape as all the elements of the show are added. This year I attended rehearsals of “The Winter’s Tale” and “Fallen Angels.” This experience continues to be very valuable to me as a director and playwright. I highly recommend contacting a local theater company to learn by becoming the audience for rehearsals. Over thirteen years I have met a number of young actors as well as continued friendships with a many veterans who return to Monmouth each year to be part of this excellent repertory theater. I can’t wait until next summer to do it again!
