Have You Always Wanted to Be on the Stage?

Can you read English? How much do you love me? Are you going to eat that? What time is it? Is that her real hair? What do YOU want to do?

Some of these questions are actually relevant. Okay, no they're not. But the point is that I'm in the middle of writing a new play and I need help. I need people to help me run through it so that I can hear what it sounds like. It's a broad comedy about a guy who gets dumped and obsesses about the chick who dumped him. It's a plus if you know t'ai chi well enough to do it in a chorus line.

Anyone? Anyone?

I would happily read for you. *grin* This should be fun.

Dude, I would so love to do that. Plus, I'd finally get to meet you!

That would totally be a plus. This post is public, so feel free to invite your friends. There are about eight parts, equally men's and women's. The lead character is a guy, so if I can't find any guys one of us gets to be him, which would also be hilarious!

Where and when for this thing? I've got "experience!"

"This thing" is likely to be small, informal, and not until September at least. The novel was finished a long time ago, but I'm in the first stages of putting the play together. Part of my reason for calling for volunteers now is that it lights a fire under me to get weaving on this.

As for your "experience," the fact that it's in quotation marks has me more than a little nervous! On the other hand, I think you'd make a great Leif. Not that you look like a Viking, but you look like the type of person who has a penis, and that's really what this role is crying out for - someone who's got a dick and isn't afraid to act like it! Or something to that effect.

Hooray! This is shaping up fabulously!

Woot! I have one of those! I just checked!
(wait.... hang on...) YUP! I do!

Also, I'm decended from the Swedish Nelson Clans... Yup!

Rawr! I swing big axe at heads! Hand over the wenches! Where's the raw rotting fish for dinner? Rawr.

Now go finish writing.

If I still lived in California, I would TOTALLY volunteer.

Oo! I'll volunteer! I'm a shitty actor but a decent reader. :)

Ooo, I wish I could participate! Esp. since, ya know, I already know the material :-) I hope it goes well - both the writing and the read-through.

Ping me. I'm years away from my community theatre days, but if you can use an aging broad who's a good sight reader, I'll try to be there. (Plus if it's Sept., all the better: my nest is emptying in 4 more weeks and I'll probably need some diversions.)
