welcome to snowball
Welcome to the Vista Theatre --one of LA’s oldest theatres, and a cultural gem in Silver Lake. Lots of LA locals flock to the Vista on Friday and Saturday nights, arriving early to secure seats as they do not ::gasp:: have reserved seating, just as they did in 1923 when it first opened its doors. There should be three of here, so once you recognize each other, do a big group hug and introduce yourselves!
YOUR SNOWBALL CHALLENGE
Your challenge here at The Vista is to recreate some of the most iconic and/or hilarious movie scenes from romantic comedies. Choose from the list below or choose your own favorite that wasn’t included. Each person should perform in two scenes while the third person in your group films it--and don’t be bound by gender, feel free to play any character regardless of who is playing them! There will be three completed scenes in total.
Once you are finished, share with your fellow Snowballers how performing felt. Was it uncomfortable? Was it exhilarating? How did performing mirror your own feelings of trepidation or excitement for a dream in your life you may have? Share with them what your passion or dream and how you came to find it.
