Twelfth Night

Week by week

Week 6

It's the first full week of performances! Check out some photos from the final dress rehearsal from last week below.

During the first few performances of any play at the Globe the creative team usually watch and make notes on the production. These performances are the conclusion of the rehearsal process and provide the actors with the chance to experiment on stage in front of an audience. The creative team and actors can guess during rehearsals how an audience might react to the play and to certain scenes, however it isn’t until there is a full audience in the theatre that they really know! Once the running time and the pace of the play become apparent, and the director and actors may make small changes to ensure the audience fully understand the story of the play.
