It's week seven of 'The Princess and the Goblins!' and as performance day draws closer the group continue to work on their production of Irene's story. It is bizarre to think how quickly the project has gone but the fruits of the group's hard labour are showing-the play is looking really good.
For this week, Jake thought up a variation of the group's favourite (well one of them at least) game; Minotaur attack. In this version the ancient landmarks and references to the story of Theseus and the Minotaur were replaced with ones relating to our goblin-themed tale for the term. The four walls of the room were given new names; Greenhill, The Mines, The Forest and the Castle, and new actions were inserted as well; such as 'magic ring,' and 'aim for the feet,' where the group had to wield a magic ring and stamp their feet. The new game was well received and we concluded with our classic splat showdown.
The improvised scenes from this week were also very entertaining. In one we had a knight who was searching a bathroom shop for a new toilet seat when he accidentally fell asleep in one of the bathtubs (and the chaos which ensued) and a fisherman trapped on an island, trying to escape.
Overall it was another fantastic rehearsal with the Chameleons. These guys are pouring everything they have into making this show amazing and we can't wait to see it when we have the costumes, lights and sounds in a few weeks. Next week we will hopefully be able to start playing around with some costumes for everyone: until then!
