That's my funeral! - Ldy, the lemony, ligerish ducttaparian's Magic Treehouse of Lost Thoughts

That's my funeral!
So, I stopped by the theatre after crab and Guinness night.* You see, they post the cast list on the theatre door once its been announced.

I didn't expect anything. Seriously. And yet... I've been cast as Mrs. Sowerberry :) (She's the undertaker's henpecking wife.)

Apparently, I have one scene, light dancing, and... am a 40-to-50 year old soprano O_O

Oh, dear!

The nice gent I met at auditions (who was a kickass Fagin) could possibly end up being Mr. Sowerberry, which would be awesome.

Queen Theatre got Nancy. She'll do great :) Bumble's good, too. They cast my friend Pete as Bill Sykes, which was a surprising, if wonderful, move.

Hooray! I'm in my first musical! :D

That's my... FUNERAL!

* Every other Monday, P & I split a couple pounds of crab and a few pints of Guinness at our local Red Lobster. We <3 the bartender.

I'm feeling all kinds of: Not my... funeral!
What I hear: That's my... funeral! (search that on youtube to hear it)

My 9th-grade chorus class's play was Oliver! and I consider myself very lucky for that experience. I was a Fagin Boy, and so got to be in many scenes, singing, dancing, and once spotlighted while picking a pocket, but didn't have to speak a solo line - exactly perfect for me. I'll never forget any of the songs. Hearty congratulations, Mrs. Sowerberry!

YAY! "That's Your Funeral" is a GREAT song. *g* It'll be a really fun role.

I'm excited for Pete too! Anyone else I know get in?

Funeral's a hoot! I was only familiar with the movie, but I found the music and lyrics, and a few videos on youtube.

I took a photo of the list, but it came out all blurry. I'll tell you what I can make out, though! If any of these look familiar, let me know, and I'll tell you what role (s)he got.


Linda Sasomething... I know I've seen her before. She's married to Bill Sasomething, who's also cast.
Elizabeth Dean
Lisa Litz
Thomas Sanders
Beth Telig
Sarah Dasomething

Oh, heck. This is too difficult.

We're having a read through tonight... it's probably too early for a contact list, but if I get one, I'll share :)

And wouldn't you know it-- I just got an email from the Hipp. Gah! I honestly don't know what I'd do if they suddenly decided to audition and cast me for NotLD. Community theatre prior commitment vs. "real" paying gig (the "paying" part is key-- not making a paycheck is kicking my arse!). Well, guess I'll cross that bridge if it ever appears.

This is Lomer, just posting from a school computer.

The Hipp most likely isn't paying. They don't pay actors who don't have lines. It's part of their policy. If you were cast as a zombie you probably wouldn't be paid. (This may have changed since Dracula, but at least this was the ruling in Dracula.)

Congrads again on being cast! And yay for everyone else! I'm very curious about the cast list, so feel free to email me. *G* Thanks!

So, you call this a funeral? Strangely enough I love musicals and find them much more enjoyable than most people do. At times I prefer them to regular theater even! *shock* So, 'cuse me for being a dolt, but what's the name of the play? I seem to have missed that point somewhere. :/

I was wondering were crab and pints await.
Good to know
