Yes! All Hands on Deck : "is full of imagination"!

This semester’s play is decked out with creativity. It tells the tale of a set of children who rely on their imaginary friends for strength. These imaginary friends consist of a secret service agent, a ball of yarn, and a dotting old grand mother. The opening scene of the play shows two QVC operators promoting a new DVD series that teaches, discipline. Parents of the aforementioned children all condemned for their vivid imaginations quickly snatch this boxed set up. The story then tells how the imaginary friends are taken away from their "reals" or real life anchors are taken away from their imaginary friend or I.F."s. and quickly form together to overcome their oppressor. This oppressor is a lady pirate named Captain Popadaplos played by Eastern alumni Shannon Flannery. The other key characters within this play are first and second mate named Morris and Melvin who remain in character both on and off stage. These two fictional crewmen go as far as walking through the audience, greeting the crowd and even bark orders out at the ushers as the exit the theater and cross back stage. "What are these people standing around for?" The second mate barks. "Sorry, Morris" apologizes the frightened usher as she snaps to order. Melvin is played my Meredith Saxton and Shoshana Greenberg brings Morris to life. The most notable and colorful imginary friend may be percived as Jude who is an almaogimizd version of a duck, ninja and paddle boat all mixed into one. My top choice or spotlight award is the slient girafe on crutches whom speaks volumes with out saying a word and is brillaintly played by Thomas Jackson. If after the play you are still interested in information on Yes!... And Collaborative Arts. Talk to Michael Bricks, he serves several itegreal parts in this performance and he is the founder of this theater production company. His exuberance for job as well as his love for the audience comes across in the play. Grade P (for Play)

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
