Gregory's Girl - Evaluation of performance.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Gregory's Girl Evaluation of performance SUSAN Jacqueline tried to portray Susan as a flirty and seductive character. She used her voice and tone well, however her body movements and gestures made her appear shy and uncomfortable. She delivered her lines at a good pace. Several times when she was delivering her lines, she moved closer to the audiences and made eye contact, which got the audience's full attention.

Middle

She used her body language quite well, pointing her body towards 'Gregory', which made the scene more intense. Fion portrayed Susan as a sweet character. Several times she tilted her head slightly when she was talking to Gregory with a slight smile. She could improve by speaking louder and clearer. Her tone was quite flat and not dramatic enough. She was facing Gregory most of the time and standing sideways so the audiences can only see half of her face most of the time. Marcia made Susan appear a shy character. She looked at the floor couple of times when she was delivering her lines. ...read more.

Conclusion

I turned my body towards Gregory at times and made eye contact with the audiences. When Margo told Susan Gregory was a sex maniac, I nudged her slightly and said the line "...how 'bout resisting a breast?" so Susan would appear to be teasing Margo. When Gregory and Susan were dancing on the floor, we turned our bodies sideways so the audiences can still see our facial expressions. When Gregory and Susan was interrupted by Eric while dancing laying on their back, I thought Susan should be startled then embarrassed. The other 'Susans' made her appear startled then amused. I realized all of the Susans including me did not indicate Carol was speaking to her on the phone. Susan could have mimed talking on the phone on the other side of the stage to indicate that. ...read more.
