OZ: REVISITING THE WIZARD [20 Jul 2006|12:37am]

Guess what all the cool kids are doing either this weekend, next weekend, or the weekend after that?

Well, I really have no idea what they're doing, but I know what they SHOULD do... they (and everyone) should come see Oz: Revisiting the Wizard, a professional show written and directed by Al Miller, with a cast comprised of Elizabeth Lardie, Tom Babbitt, Elliot Cumming, Michelle Livermore Wigton, Lee K. Paige, and Will Snow. Plus Patrick and I... and Sean and Karin are stage managing, and our very own Chris Edwards is running the sound. So pretty much, with the exciting set and costumes, the talented cast of actors, the lighthearted humor and of course, the flying monkeys... you pretty much HAVE to come see it.

After all, it's what all the cool kids are doing. :)

Because I'd rather ask in an appropriate manner, and this reaches more people anyway, I've heard that people are hearing about their parts for As You Like It, and I desperately want to know who got what part. So tell me! For I am greedy for knowledge.

Think of... [24 Aug 2005|11:44am]

Hey guys--

Remember when Al said (during the 2nd show or so) to think of someone during the play and wish them a good performance and send positive energy, who did you think of?

None of us ever got around to saying who we thought of so I think we should all know. At the end we were all so pre-occupied with saying goodbye that we didn't say : ) So post with their name.

(And FYI, I will once someone else does it because I sure as heck don't want to be the only one)

It all revolves around us [07 Aug 2005|08:51am]

The Mouse That Roared went splendidly for everyone that was in it. I think it was one of the best summer plays yet and I had a lot of fun doing it.

I could write shout outs which I intend to get around to sometime. But for the mean time, let's honor it by shouting out everyone who participated--


An incredible performance made great by all who participated.

And thank these two lovely people for visiting;


If I forgot anyone you have permission to kick me. You are all Mo Cuishle, "my darlings."

If you're not already in it, come see The Mouse That Roared Thursday, Friday and Saturday. All three days. Or I'll cut your throat. And make you swallow your own fingernails. And then poke you with a stick. Repeatedly.

Also, I'm considering giving someone else the job of being the maintainer for this community, as I won't be there. Basically, your job would be to keep it alive. Like I'm currently attempting to do...

Well, Voices has ended my last year in the Young People's Theater (or whatever it's called, I have trouble differentiating between the different little groups). I'm having trouble admitting to myself that it's over. After the show this afternoon, I just left. I barely said goodbye to anyone.

I doubt half the people here who should get this message will actually get it, but I just want to say thank you to everyone. This means everyone. I might undertake a mission to list who "everyone" is, but generally, if I know you from the Theater Project, and I don't hate you, you're part of "everyone." And it's impossible to hate anyone there.

I guess I don't have much to say. It's hard, there are so many people who deserve to see this who won't, despite my best efforts. So, on the off chance that I never see someone I know from the theater project again, I'm asking people to relay the message;

"Sam says 'Thanks.'"

Sammy boy's tribute. [03 Apr 2005|07:11pm]

Okay, I feel like copying what the bhsplayers community people did when Drood ended, and praising people. I'll even be praising people who aren't actually going to be reading this, but deserve praise anyway. And if I don't mention you or don't give too many words, it's because I just didn't get to know you well enough. Boy, this'll be pretty funny considering that most of the people I'll be talking to won't read this, but I don't give a shit.

Patrick: I believe the exact quote you gave me during the auditions was "I don't want to play Romeo," or something basically that. You're too modest about things. Despite all your complaining about the small things, you did amazing. You are the man. I'd say more, except there's not much more to say, and damned if you're actually seeing this.

Bonnie: You know, the only other time I've seen you with a speaking part that wasn't simply one or two lines was in Frankenstein. I was quite surprised with you when I actually saw you playing the lead (and let's face it, Juliet is the larger of the two leads). You managed to play Juliet in a way I don't think I've seen before, as an intelligent girl. I'm also glad that I now count you among my friends. Especially since I believe I didn't like you that much during that camp thing that I vaguely remember us both doing a long time ago...

Emily: You have all the best qualities of the Nurse. That's the best way I can put it. It was great to share the stage with you, even for just one scene. No, two scenes. I said to myself in the very beginning that I wasn't going to make the friar some sort of comic relief, and even though you had more jokes than I did, you managed the same thing with the Nurse. I congratulate you.

Carrie: I wish I had actually gotten to know you more, I might have more words to say. As it is, though, you did well. You'd better do more plays at the theater project in the future, because you worked incredibly well in the ensemble for a first-timer. You've proven yourself to be an apt "straight man," to use the comedian's sense of the phrase (and as one myself, I heartily praise your talents). You've also been the only one of us who have managed to believably control Carl's outbursts, if only onstage. Now, if you could have managed to do the same thing offstage, I would have hugged you, which is not something I do quite often.

Carl: I don't know if you even have a livejournal, but you're one of those people who deserves to have something said about them anyway. Mercutio was your destiny. You managed to annoy me nine times out of ten backstage. And despite all my threats against you, either openly stated or kept to myself, you're still probably going to be the next Robin Williams or something.

Ben: I should probably start using surfer terms and calling you "bro." You're like my best friend. You're also one hell of an actor. I sincerely hope you find a way to work with taller actors, so you aren't always playing parents or bad guys. Because you obviously have a bigger range than what you're given with while working in high school productions.

Santina: I've got more praise about what's happened offstage than on, if only because there's simply more there. I didn't actually know you in the least, even during Voices last year. And, much like with Bonnie, I now am able to consider you one of my friends. You are batshit insane sometimes, and I mean that as a compliment. I also feel I have to thank you for enhancing Patrick's performance, both with the simple extra twinkle in his eye that I noticed after you started dating, and for helping him cry during the scene in Act 3 (I seriously cannot believe that I didn't know how you did it until today. I mean, I knew you had to be behind it somehow, because he never managed to cry so hard until after you got together, but I didn't get it until today...) You also did great onstage, but I'm running out of space for other people...

Aidan: Unfortunately, your roles onstage were too small for me to say "you were a true shining star," though you did do well. You are, however, a great friend, and one of the few people I can count on to do the intellectual equivalent of hitting me over the back of the head with a rubber chicken when I act stupid. And if you ever change your views on the world, I'll yell at you.

Cecilia: I don't believe we were ever formally introduced. That tends to happen a lot with people that my friends from the theater project are friends with at school, but usually those people don't become part of my circle anyway. You're one of those people who seems like they know it all, even if you don't, and you come across that way just naturally. I wish I could explain my impressions of you better. Basically, you're cool and smart, and you make a great narrator.

Sam N.: Okay, basically, same situation as Carl. When you run in to ask Lady Capulet to come down to the party, I still managed to chuckle even today. In Holes you complained that you preferred to play comedy. Here, you got two comedic roles that you mastered both of. My hat is off to you, sir. Though i don't normally wear a hat.

Alex: I'm sorry we're not better friends after this, but at least I can say that you did an amazing job. Not only were you able to believably play a guy, but you took a character that to me seemed just a total jackass, and actually made him human. Even just that simple touch of leaning against the pole when looking at Juliet's "dead" body made me see actual sorrow. My non-existant hat is off to you.

Okay, if I missed you, then join this community and post your own list without me on it. Don't feel offended, if I missed you, please. I just didn't have enough to write about, either because your part was too small, or because I didn't get to know you that well, or a combination of the two plus the belief that you probably weren't going to read this...

I'm mostly updating this right now since Romeo and Juliet is winding down and I feel it necessary to remind people that this thing exists...

Also, what exactly are the requirements for being in the professional ensemble? I doubt I'd actually do it, but considering that by the time they do The Merchant of Venice I'll have graduated from high school, it would be interesting to do one last show, a Shakespeare play, and not just be a student actor. It's just a thought.

Okay, just to warn people, a guy from Brunswick High will be coming to film our rehearsal on thursday for the school news show. This will actualy be on t.v., so do good damnit! :P (I know you all will) So...nothing big, just spread the word to people whoaren't in this community so it doesn't come as a huge surprise and throw them off or something...

R+J cast get-together? [11 Mar 2005|07:34pm]

This is something that I hope word will get around about. I won't bother asking myself why I don't just post this in my own livejournal, since there are no people who see one and not the other, but it's more important for here.

Okay, first off, opening day is next Friday for Romeo + Juliet. Now, mta has a day off that day, and to take advantage of that, the school musical has a matinee show that Friday, at 2. They also have a show that evening and the evening before, but that afternoon is more important, because I'm thinking it would be cool to get as many people from the cast of R+J together as possible that afternoon and see it. I might even be able to strike a deal with the cast of The Wiz so that they'll do something similar for one of our shows. Shana Huston is in The Wiz, and is also in my homeroom, and has expressed interest in seeing the show, so she may be able to act as ambassador to the cast of that play. I don't know if we can do something similar for Edwin Drood, but if it is possible, then we should. I can buy the tickets and strike the deal if people are interested and would be able to make it next Friday afternoon (I believe Ben said Brunswick had the day off that day. If he's wrong, someone should hit him).

anyone else? [22 Feb 2005|07:29pm]

*Okay, I'm editing this down to a polite request, as opposed to the slightly self-absorbed complaint that included a legitimate request that I had here before.*

Please comment with the usernames and real names of people who have livejournal accounts and should at least know about this community. If you have told these people already, please tell me so, but I'll start doing official invitations, the kind that are an actual feature of communities, as soon as I have a good list of people who I can invite.

Remember, this is anyone who has been even a small role in a single play at the theater project...
