I'M A FAERIE!!!
I got cast as a faerie for this year's Tennessee Renaissance Festival. It'll definitely be a different experience to play a mythical character. So far I've only acted in historical noble and peasant roles. I've already got a handful of ideas swirling around in my noggin for what character I want to be. Our first rehearsal is this Sunday so I'll find out which of my ideas gets chosen (or who knows, it may be something else entirely). But if I do happen to get to do the favourite idea I have in my head right now, it will be GLORIOUS!
I'm so excited! (If you couldn't tell from all the exclamations.) Not only will this provide a wonderful costume design opportunity, but also a good acting exercise as the TNRF faeries speak their own gibberish language (i.e. No english, all gestures). Physical improv is my strong suite, so I'm looking forward to getting to play in that arena again. Since this is a short post, I'll leave with a look at some of the faeries from previous years of our Renaissance Festival. Enjoy!
