Artstrek Memories: “Being Truly in Character – 2012” – Elsye

Elsye has attended Artstrek once before, and plans on going back again this year! She is in grade 10 and plans on continuing to take part in local theatre groups for many years to come.

Last year was my first time attending artstrek, and it was an unforgettable experience. My favorite memory was on the second last day, we had been studying Romeo and Juliet for the week, and on this particular day in acting class we each took on the role of one of the other characters and we were attending Romeo and Juliet’s funeral, and it was just a really intense time, and i think we all got really into character, and it took us along time to shake of the intense emotions we were feeling, and I think by the end of class we were all crying and hugging each other. That was probably the most intense and powerful acting experience I have ever had.
