WOW-EFFECT Hosts a Shared Rehearsal to Celebrate the World Theatre Day

Two amateur theatre groups from Nijmegen – WOW-EFFECT Theater and Playback Theater Storyline – are getting together to celebrate the World Theatre Day that takes place on March 27th. After last year’s success with Toneelgroep Twister and The Fool’s Men, this shared rehearsal is the second edition. WOW-EFFECT aims to continue building connections within the amateur theatre community of Nijmegen and beyond, in the years to come.

The rehearsal kicks off with collective acting and team-building exercises, lead by the directors from each group. This helps people to connect and feel comfortable with each other. Actors also get to experience input from a different director. The groups then share a piece from their current project with the others. This is their chance to get constructive feedback and help each other out. Overall, the shared rehearsal is a much-valued learning opportunity for any group present. The newly built connections are then consolidated with a drink at the bar next door.
