IMPROVISE A BIT WITH THE SCRIPT IN PERFORMANCE
'MOMENTS BETWEEN' - FILL IN
Avoid an uncomfortable silence on stage.
There can be time on stage when there is business going on and you have run out of script.
And something just should be said - we all get a sense of strain.
What professional actors do here is to fill in - add more dialogue, and more hmms and umms, and to keep it going.
You know what I mean? - you are putting your effort into miming, where some voicing is also needed.
It is that danger of only doing the words in the script.
Believe me, that is not what happens in professional theatre, where they are freer with the script.
