Welcome Back to Guild Fridays!

And we’re back!

Energy was high today as we gathered for our first Guild Friday of 2022! Newer cast members were introduced to a couple of our favourite theatre games to warm up, as more experienced actors kindly took the new folk into the fold. Everyone is so excited to be putting on a show after the pandemic-caused hiatus.

What’s involved in getting started? Jeqn encouraged the cast to come together as an ensemble and offered an inspiring reflection on some of ESG’s core principles, such as teamwork, commitment, and being supportive through curiosity and non-judgement.

The cast got to hear the story that will be told through their spring performance, the story of Mary, the mother of Jesus. ESG’s own Playwright, Kathy, shared some of her process in creating this year’s script. Once the actors received their roles, they dove right into character development.

It was thrilling to hear the walkthrough of our upcoming production. We can’t wait for everyone to see it!

Stay tuned as we pick up with another season of Feature Fridays, in which we interview an ESG participant, volunteer, or staff person and get to know a little more about the amazing people who make up the ESG community.
