:bulletpurple:  Musical History of MelMuff  :bulletpurple:


:below::below::below::below::below::below:

If anyone is interested in reading this, I will tell you how I came to luv musicals so much today.  I've had a big love for musicals since 1999, ever since I took music theatre class in high school.  Before that, I never really knew what the term "musicals" meant.  LOL  I just thought that they were plays with lots of music in them but I know better now.  Some musicals have dialogue and songs in them while others have singing in them non stop.  I've been in 6 musicals myself.  The first musical that I performed in was "Clowns".  I was in grade 8 at the time and it was produce by a teacher so it was nothing big.  Then in my last year of high school in 1999/2000, Glen Productions, a small local theatre company, put up posters in my high school looking for people to audition for "Jesus Christ Superstar".  I passed the audition and was part of the general chorus and a reporter, where as I got 2 solo lines.  Just so I don't have to repeat myself, I was always part of the chorus in all the musicals I did with Glen Productions and I was with them throughout all my college years.  My time with them finally ended in early 2004.  Anyway, the next musical I performed in was "The Sound of Music" where I was a novice nun or a nun in training.  It was neat since I wore a white veil instead of the typical black one.  Then the next one that I was in was "Evita" where I was a kid for one song.  I got to be front and center holding 2 kids by the hands and being part of their little ensemble.  Next was "My Fair Lady" which is one of my fav musicals to watch but not one I would like to be part of again.  I didn't really have a fun experience with that one.  Lastly was "The Wizard of Oz" where I was an emerald city dancer.  I'm not really the dancing type but it was fun to be one.  This year Glen Productions is putting on "Oliver" but since I'm away at school, I couldn't join this time around.  Oh well!  I still plan to be in other musicals in the future.  :)  I have also seen two musicals myself back in May 2000 on a music trip in Toronto.  I saw "The Lion KIng" and "Mamma Mia" and both of them were good.  I luv all the ABBA songs I heard in "Mamma Mia" and I found "The Lion King" to be very colourful.  I especially liked the beginning of it with all the animals on stage and the people coming down the aisles holding sticks with birds swirling around on the ends.  Both are fantastic musicals.

Wow! You are busy! :D I just like watching musicals lol I don't think I could ever be in one. The only theater company around here is so tiny they can't even change the scenery on the stage but they are still great :D You should call :D lol

I finally did call tonight but found out that I can't be in it. It's already too late in the season and they don't need anymore ppl. What I am going to do after the holidays, I don't know? I could still stay home but most likely I'll still stay living away from home. Hopefully then I'll be able to visit home during my roomie's winter break in Feb and see "Oliver" while I'm there. Good news though if I do still live away before going home for good for the summer, I'll still have unlimited internet access. Had I gone back home, I'd have no internet access at home and would be limited to 3 to 6 hours a week at the library. I always have to do that every summer and it's never enough time for me.

Yeah, I was very busy. It was helpful too that halfway through the rehearsals were held at the college I went to so I didn't have to go very far. I really meant to call yesterday but I completely forgot. I've been reminding myself all day today that I'm gonna call.

Any theatre company is good. Glen is small but they did change scenery. "The Wizard of Oz" was kool cuz it was the first to have a computer animated background. Some guy in Toronto who was a friend of the directors did it. I can't remember if he got paid though or if he did it for free. I think it was for free. Anyway, that was a really cool effect. And thanx for the comment!
