BSG/Heroes Thread

Baltar in the pre-credits sequence... wow...again.
[UPDATE] OK, all you BSG-haters, find me one other TV show with this many Oscar winners and nominees who can chew scenery with even junky scripts, and then give them a award winning writing staff, and then... and this episode is LOADED already. You don't know what you're missing. (but the back epsiodes are on DVD and on Univesal HD, so stop missing)

2007-2008 Season

It's early, I know to be thinking of next year, but honestly, this is when the thinking needs to begin. I have a sense of the talent base that will carry over, and I have a sense of the technical challenges I want to tackle.

So, the calendar, first of all: We again will have SIX full length productions
  • The Summer Workshop, beginning rehearsals at the end of July and going on stage in the Little Theater the second week of school
  • A fall date for a Senior Project, in the Little Theater the 3rd weekend in October
  • The Fall Play, a main stage production the weekend before Thanksgiving
  • The Winter Play, a main stage production the final weekend in February
  • A spring date for a Senior Project, in the Little Theater the 2nd or 3rd week of March
  • The Musical, on the main stage two weekends spanning the end of April and beginning of May
In addition, we will have regional competition exhibition in late January, a one act to take to State, and two or three nights of short scenes later in May -- plenty of opportunity to act!!

So the question: What to do? One show is already selected already - in early June, we will audition The Fantasticks, a musical with 9 roles. 2 must be male, 1 must be female. The remainder have some flexibility.

Beyond that? I want your thoughts

Seussical Audition Info

Seussical will audition on Monday, February 5 (acting and voice) and Tuesday, February 6 (dance). Both sessions start at 4pm and sign-up sheets will post in FA6 on January 29 (Monday).

You are expected to be at BOTH auditions.

For the Monday session, you will need a short memorized acting piece (under a minute), a prepared song from the show (you may select from either How Lucky You Are, Alone in the Universe, or The Military). There will also be a brief sight reading component. 5 minute slots will be available from 4pm until 7pm. COPIES OF THIS MUSIC IS AVAILABLE FROM MR. REPPERT.

For the Tuesday session, please come with appropriate shoes and clothes for dance. You will be taught a piece and then will perform it in a mid-sized group. This audition will use six 10 minute slots from 4:30 to 5:30. The first half hour (from 4) will be spent in instruction.

Discuss
[Update] Just not having the wooooo moments tonight, though Nikki is clearly a total nutjob and Hiro is awesome as always... but I am thinking I got a better solid hour last night...the end of show might make the net payoff worth it, but...
Discuss - oh wait, only ONE OF YOU watched last night, so nevermind

Weather Updates [UPDATED WEDS AM]

Click here for the District / School website for school cancellation updates.

[UPDATE] We are now cancelled for tomorrow - NO SCHOOL.

I will be there from 9am until 1pm building, for any who care to join me. Given the roads this AM, I am going to get in when I can. Please DON'T try to get there to help unless you call first and confirm I am there. (we've lost two days of stagecraft now, so are behind. anything we can accomplish is worth something, but risking the drive may not be THAT worth it)
