Theatre Documentary  
Mostly this post is for my mother, who isn't going to get to see the show I'm currently in. But for everyone else, this is sort of cool. Mark Robertson-Baker, a filmmaker/director here in town is filming a documentary/ad spots for ALT during the process of South Pacific.

I'm in all three videos, but the last one is probably the best. It includes the follies routine on a teeny tiny stage on the stage, and I find it amusing that I'm continually looking down so that my lard ass isn't going to FALL OFF.

My audition starts at 3:11; and then it's followed by someone who can actually sing...

Singing rehearsals. At the end of the French version of Bali Hai, the look on my face says, "Oh, I am SO not singing the right note." And it took me a week to figure out that the French Lyrics were the same as the English ones. Just in French. *headdesk*

The Follies Number starts at 5:09, but the whole thing is pretty interesting, from a design standpoint.

Keep in mind that these are rehearsals. So nothing is quite finished or perfectly polished. Even so, it's still pretty good!

It all looks like so much fun! I'm jealous. Not that I'd ever have the guts to do anything like that though.

Lots of people say that about putting their writing out there, and that's something you do in a prolific way!

I LOVE musicals and theatre, so I really liked watching these! (got here from obrienblue, haha). Also I disagree--you CAN in fact, actually sing! And you have so much personality! :)

Obrien is hysterical! I love reading her stuff, no matter what it is.

Glad you stopped by! And thanks for the kind words. :)

Woo that was fun! So great to see you in action. Not only can you act and sing, you've got moves too! Encore!! *applause*

Enjoyed it, Thanks
Is there any more? You know I'm never satisfied.
You look great! And looks like so much fun! the cast looks to be very good, very talented. I wish we were going to get to see it. Tom and I are talking about how to come as soon as we get back, maybe we will. Mom

Re: Enjoyed it, Thanks
There will be more, I'm sure. There isn't right now, though. I'll post them as they come.

High praise! It is fun. The dances aren't hard, but still fun to do without being boring.

I hope you do get to visit! It's been awhile since you were here!
