Thespians and the shows you've been in!
So, I know a few of us are Thespians(Actors) here. And I wanted to know which shows soem have you have been in.
I'm currently in the Musical CATS!. I've also been in Seussical, Little Shop of Horrors, and Sweeny Todd.
(Small tip: Sweeny Todd is terrible for chorus)
I've also been in about 5 1 act plays. What have you done?
Count me in! Though technically I'm not a Thespian, lol. I've always been behind the scenes, and I looooooove it! I havent been a part of anything since moving to Hawaii, but I loved being on a stage crew *sigh* I've done, Frankenstien, Hello Dolly, Guys and Dolls, Sleepy Hollow, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Much Ado about Nothing, Annie Get Your Gun, and a few other small ones, I can seem to remeber I've helped out with almost every aspect of the technical side, prop manager, lights, painting scenery, making trap doors, sewing costumes, doing make-up, I was even Stage Manager for Hunchback of Notre Dame. I just love everything about getting ready for a show and then running around behind the scenes durring a performance, taking care of all the little things people watching never even think of <3
I'm the same as Pammerz. I'm a backstage kind of person. Its almost magical to work backstage. Everything that goes on behind the stage is what creates the amazing thing on stage. I've done so many shows: You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, The Taming of the Shrew, Bus Stop, the list goes on for ages. I remember I was a thesbian once though. I did The Crucible and a couple other shows, (I was the character type of actor that you see only once and remember because they were funny or serious) I liked acting 'cause it was chance to be someone I wasn't like playing pretend. But to me, back stage is a lot more fun. I've done just about every aspect, but my main focus is stage management. It's even my career goal (besides costume design) ^_^
I was in a third grade production of "The Artful Dodgers" in the role of a little boy named "Teddy". I was totally absent the day the teacher assigned roles, lol.
I did a lot of comedy improv, but it didn't really click for me. I'm more into sketch comedy.
i absolutely looove technical theatre! i am a devoted techie, who doesnt allow actors into the sound booth or on the cat walk and will hopefully become head tech next year! i have helped out in all of the haunted house productions at my school and have been in wardrobe and makeup/set design and building in the Diviners, Harvey, Working, and Once Upon a Mattress. Since discovering this site perhaps i will be costume/makeup designer for the haunted house
My fave that ive ever been in was I got to play nurse in romeo and juliet, she is such a fun ,bubbly character to play and I had endless fun with my props which I got to make. I played a narator in macbeth but I hated it, :o because my part was written in nobody knew when i meant to come in, and I didnt get to really act. I also got to play a billiting/adoptions officer in goodnight mr tom , I got to do a cheesy london accent and I had victory curls and glassess and I was a real battle ax It wasnt a big part so I got to help out with makeup, and hair too .
I love making my own props and costumes.
I've been the Cat in the Hat in Seussical Jr, and then (since it was a school play) we used the opening song for that (which was my solo) for a big collection of songs from school plays in a huuuuge auditorium! (That was a few years ago, but still really fun!) I've been in the ensemble for a few plays, I was the understudy for a stepsister in Cinderella (The Rogers and Hammerstein version), and then this past year, in HONK! Jr. (a play about the ugly duckling) I got to be the bullfrog!!!!! The bullfrog was loud and obnoxious and EXTREMELY fun to play! Although, on opening night, my microphone pack fell off of where it was clipped on my back, and it ended up taking the rest of the microphone with it... But I THINK I played it off alright...
