(Japanese follows)

Drop those T’s, elongate those vowels, make your ‘th’ sound like an ‘f’—you’re a Cockney now, Laura!

As an American from the Great Lakes area, natural Cockney English accents aren’t something I grew up hearing, let alone trying to use. From my high s...

How long does it take?  Dreamcatcher took us about a year and a half in production, with half a year for pre-production which is time spent in carving the story and figuring out how to approach the massive task of putting on an original musical.  Jukebox Paradise was a...

Dreamcatcher - An Original Musical

One sunny afternoon Gary and I were sat in the break room at work.  We were going through a list of stories that Gary had written and we were trying to decide which one would be a possibility for the stage.  At this time Gary wasn't th...

"Today is the first day of the rest of your life"

Charles Dederich & Brian Cullen - Jukebox Paradise

I wish someone had told me this quote when I first decided to take a leap of faith, trip over and accidentally start a theatre company.  As far as this collection of writ...

I've been outside of the Jukebox for a while, and very happy to be back. Being away for two months has given me the opportunity to see something really special; the development of the unique characters in and outside of the Jukebox. The actors are off-book, and with th...

One, two, three, four and in and out, in and out and....!

Woah! Hey guys, sorry about that! Just learning to move with Yukari!

Jukebox Paradise のスタイリストを担当している伊藤絵梨佳と宇野愛未です

 

RED ROCK というお店でたまたまキャストの皆さんと知り合ったことによってスタイリストをやらせていただくきっかけになりました

 

この舞台の設定は60年代なのでファッションやメイクにも注目して欲しいです

 

 

今日は歌の稽古が行われています。

全てオリジナルの音楽で、練習なのに拍手が起こるほどかっこよくて、聞き惚れてしまいます

バンドもシンガーもとても素晴らしい才能を持っています!

 

本番を楽しみにしていてください!!

ジュークボックスパラダイスの役者が全員揃い、稽古を開始しました!

本番11月末までまだまだ時間があるように思いますが、作品を作り上げるのには想像以上に時間がかかります。

まずは役者同士が良い関係を作り、お互いの信頼関係を築くための様々な練習を稽古に取り入れています。登場人物の役柄や性格、各場面の研究や台詞の暗記、先ずは舞台を最高の作品にするための基本的な作業をコツコツやっています。笑いあり涙あり、怒りで泣くこともあれば、嬉し泣きも。本番までにきっと色々起こるでしょう。喉を痛めたり、もしかしたら筋肉痛にだってなるかも?!大丈夫です、みんな...
