Hi, my name is Tamara, I'm a senior in highschool and because of my ardent desire to do theater all the time, I somehow signed myself up to direct a small project around March. I have also been granted the opportunity to choose the play (or at least contribute suggestions). I'm hoping this will provide my co-director and me with a chance to create an impactful and interesting piece of theater. I should also point out that this is a first time thing, a sort of test of what a student-run production would be. I would love some suggestions for material, so here are the parameters:

small cast (8 or 9 people tops)
good mix of male and female
not too long (one acts are welcome)
enlightening subject matter (I'm trying to steer away from typical bad farce fare we have here)

I would be eternally grateful.

Hi! I have an audition coming up, and I’m planning on singing “Turn Back, O Man.” from Godspell or "Only in New York" or "They Don't Know" from Thoroughly Modern Millie. Well, my friend, who has the sheet music, lost it. So if any of you have it and could scan those songs and email them to me (pizzle_on_stage@hotmail.com) I would love you forever!! Or if you know if they’re online anywhere. I don’t have time to order them, and the music store in my town doesn’t have the book. Please! I need your help!

Subject:A Scene
Posted by:farceuse.
Time:9:35 pm.
Hello, all!

Do any of you know the title and/or author of a funny scene (maybe from a larger play, maybe not) for two males. One of the men is in love with the wife of the other man, who is his good friend, and he considers to himself the different ways in which his friend might react.

At one point he thinks that his friend will kill him the way they do in Italian movies, and he imagines the experience with the two of them speaking in frantic Italian; at another, he thinks his friend may just pat him on the shoulder and wish him all the best.

If you have any idea where I might find this scene, please, please let me know. It would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: It turns out the play is Play It Again, Sam by Woody Allen. This helps a lot. Many, many thanks to everyone who helped!

I have an audition coming up for the play "A Christmas Carol" and I have to do a monologue. The play is for a Children's Theatre, so I'm guessing I should do a children's theatre type monologue. I was thinking along the lines of a monologue from Peter Pan by the character of Peter Pan. If anybody has any monologues or know's any monologues from Peter Pan from the lead character or maybe any other child theatre type monologues for a 20 year old guy who could play roles ranging from ages 16-21, it would be a big help!!!

If anyone is interested in another group about theatre, I made one, not to shy away people from here, just adding a new place for everyone to chat if they so chose. Hope to see you there.

Subject:Random Les Mis stuff.
Posted by:elven_ranger.
Time:1:56 pm.
1) there is a production of Tim Kellys adaptation of Les Miserables, at the Theatre Royal,Plymouth (UK) June 1st -5th 2004, see http://www.theatreroyal.com/ and go to "select a production". Its by a local amateur group The Western College Players. I'm in it.

2) does anyone have more details on this adaptation by Tim kelly, i cant find much info on the net, bar a school in American that performed it.. and the publishers name on my copy of da script.

3) i am making a website about the production. Its a bit threadbare at the mo, so if anyone knows of any cool links or info about this version of Les Mis, or have any cool info (Mis-related), please feel free to share. www.angelfire.com/rebellion2/paris


then this weekend i am finally getting round to reading the full length novel - not the abridged one.

Take care :)

Subject:Anyone Know
Posted by:highkick49.
Time:11:29 am.
Hey, I've been working in theatre for about 6 years now, acting and doing little lighting, set design, and props work, but I am looking for new places in the South Carolina area that do theatrical productions, besides the location that I am currently at (Camden Fine Arts Center) so that I may be able to branch out and do some more mature and fun shows, then the kid shows that we are forced to put on, and I was just wondering if anyone knew of any place, or knew of a good way to search for something that would be interesting.

Subject:Lil Abner
Posted by:mselliebelle.
Time:6:08 pm.
Okay, so I just got cast as the female lead in the musical Lil Abner! It's at Young Actor's Theater...which I had never heard of before, so it could be crappy, or it could be great. Who knows...anyways...come see it! It's not for awhile...but here is the head's up:

Preformance dates: March 18, 19, & 20th

Haha...that is all I know at the moment. I'll post more when I know more.

Subject:Spring Play Choices!!!
Posted by:mselliebelle.
Time:8:28 pm.
Okay...so here's the deal with our SC Spring Play Choices. Hobbsie wants to either do the female version of The Odd Couple by Neil Simon, or Father of the Bride!! Both are great plays. However, Father of the Bride has something like 11 male roles which is way too many if you ask me. Especially since it only has about 7 women parts plus 4 extras. On the other hand, the Odd Couple might not have many other principle female roles besides the main two. So yeah...that is what I found out today. Auditions are like the 3rd or 4th of Feb? Something like that. That is all for now

Mood: rushed.
I have come to the conclusion that it will be acceptable to post movie reviews in here. I think it would be interesting for us theater folks, since we are usually extremely critical over ANY show we see, hehe! Ok then, have at it and review away...

I will write more later. I have recently seen Mona Lisa Smile and Cheaper By The Dozen, yahoo. Have a great day!

Subject:Adv. Theater 1-Acts
Posted by:showbizcutie.
Time:3:19 pm.
Mood: Starbucks-ized!!.
So, bright and early (ok, maybe not so early) on Monday morning, my 1-act group is having a nonofficial rehearsal at Miss Kover's house. We're meeting from 11am-5pm. I doubt we'll need that long to rehears...plus, knowing all of us, we'll end up just sitting there being random and talking. It should be fun though, I'm not really dreading it at all. However, that means that in my spare time - which lately has been NONEXISTANT - I need to memorize the 2nd half of the script and have it down. Not that they'll be angry with me if I don't know it all rock solid, but there's really no reason why I shouldn't have it done. I have no excuse.

Anyway, this night of one acts thing we're going to be doing should be very interesting indeed. We've never done anything like this before at school, so this will be kind of an experiment. I'm kind of glad that they're student directed, it makes it more fun (in most cases anyway). For instance, my group is under the direction of Jessie and Sarah, which is brilliant! I love having them as directors.

If you'd like to come see this theatrical feasco (kidding, kidding!) then I suggest you show up @ Steele Canyon, 7pm, and the dates are somewhere between the 12th-16th, I think. I'll find out for sure tomorrow and update this. The 1-act I am cast in is called "The Actors Nightmare" and it's actually very funny. It's by Christopher Durang. I'm playing the part of Ellen Terry, who plays the part of Sybil in the "Private Lives" sequence and a hobo in "Checkmate". It's kind of confusing at first, because it's just a huge collage type thing of 3-4 different plays and the main actor, George, is really confused, so it can confuse the aduience too...however, I think with the way we're portraying it (at least I hope) that the audience will be able to enjoy the confusion and the humor that lies within it.

That's my bit for today. We have our final Winter Concert tonight @ 7pm...wish us many broken bones!

Subject:Spring Play
Posted by:showbizcutie.
Time:8:22 pm.
Mood: contemplative.
So, Hobbsie was talking about doing 'Rumors' in the spring. Before I saw the play, I was up for any suggestion as long as it wasn't 'To Kill A Mockingbird'. After I saw the play, I loved the script...all the comedy and everything is very well writen; however, I could not see our department doing it. I think we lack the resources and the talent, as far as boys go. Think about it, all we have to count on are Stephan and Lewis. Lewis ruins any part because he goes freakin' turbo and just does whatever the hell he wants and Stephan...eh, I dunno. I love the guy and all, but I'm not sure I could see him (or Lewis, for that matter) doing any of the parts in 'Rumors'.

'Alice In Wonderland' was mentioned as something we might do. It was a rumor though (no pun intended!). In a way I'm glad...because the set would be entirely too difficult and with the people Hobbsie likes to cast, eh. I'm not sure about the success of a show like that. That's just my opinion though.

'Starlight Express', an awesome show Mrs. G saw in London, is coming here in March! The show is done with the actors all on rollerskates and there are supposedly some awesome songs. Kathryn brought the flier to Mrs. G and she said we'd all definitely organize a field trip to go because it's a "brilliant show". How exciting, eh?! I think it would be neat. I like seeing shows at community theaters, it makes me feel cultured. Me = dork :P

That's my ramblings for now. Comment/post your own ideas/whatever. I just really hope this community can go somewhere and not just sit in a rut with only me posting and 2-3 people commenting.

Hasta, darlings!

Subject:Welcome!
Posted by:showbizcutie.
Time:9:56 pm.
Mood: creative.
Out of sheer boredum, I decided to make this super neat community for summerstock kiddos/theater lovers. All I need now are members, but I'm sure y'all will help me out with that, right?

What is the purpose of this community? Well, we can share news about auditions, current shows, upcoming shows, give info/encourage people to come to our shows, yada yada. That sort of thing. Sounds neat, yes? I think so! Call me a dork if you will.

You are also welcome to post reviews or write about plays that you have enjoyed reading or seeing at various theaters.

Enjoy, dears! And welcome :)
