Chatterbox: Pudding's Place




Does anyone else love acting?  I have been in four plays, A Christmas Carol, Annie, Fiddler on the Roof, The Sound Of Music and (in my humble opinion) have had starring roles in every one. Well, maybe not that townsperson... Anyway, I am just about to do my second audition for Our Town, so wish me luck!

I love acting too! I have been in a play of the Red Shoes, and also in one I wrote myself. They were school plays.

I think I know what theater you're talking about. I wish I could try out for Our Town, but it's in October, and I'm going to be busy. Anyway, good luck!

And if it is the theater I'm thinking of, then I'll see you in the play!

I don't particularly enjoy acting, but I adore reenacting. Unfortunately, (and unlike acting) you won't get rich doing it, no matter how good you are or how long you've been at it.:-) Instead, you end up going crazy and buying all sorts of historical things such as spinning wheels, colonial shoes with buckles on them, poke bonnets, and butter churns. I volunteer at a historical village during the spring school season and teach school groups about different eras. (This year it was the Victorian Era.) It's probably too late to wish you luck, Willa, but I will anyway! Good luck!!!

Nice job!!I hope you have a great time!

I love to act. It's my true love. I just got my first part in a real theater,(I'm really excited!) but I've also been in a bunch of school shows... my favorite being.. umm probably Peter Pan... I seem to be cast a lot as old ladies and mothers. Does anyone else? And has anyone else done any Gilbert&Sullivan? They're my favorites!!! I've only been in Pirates of Penzance, but there are a lot of other fabulous shows by them... 

Also, Has anyone been in a play of The Princess Bride? It's my favorite book and movie, and I really want to be in it!!! 

What is everybuggy doing as a school show this year? We're doing Cinderella... auditions in December....

Thank you all so much for the good luck! I believe it worked because I got the part of Rebecca!  Oh and Hannah, actually,  I'm not getting any richer either,  my theatre is a community theatre and we don't get paid:)  Reenacting sounds really interesting!

Hi, Everybuggy!

I'm so glad that you got a part in the play, Willa!:) I love to sing and act, but I'm not in any drama group at the moment. By the way, to Mayr S., I LOVE the musical Wicked! It's one of my all time favorites! And yes, I'm pretty sure that you did spell "Defying Gravity" right.:) "Defying Gravity" is my favorite song, too.

I love Wicked! I've seen it three times!!! My favorite singer in the world is Idina Menzel!! I've taken an acting class at kids college, as well as a singing class. I'm too young to star in any big plays though =( =( =( I want to be on broadway someday! Who else can't wait until HSM3?
Oh, and congrats Willa!
