We are doing "Funny Thing..." at our college--and I just got cast as Hero. This is really going to be fun because I have been use to playing one type of part for so long--and now I will actually get to play something different.

Tell me if this sounds interesting...
We are doing our play design as Rome with a Sixties Twist... Phillia will be a flower child, Lycus will be dressed as a pimp, and there are other little things that will be thrown in. I didnt like this idea at first, but when I think about it--I think our production will be more unique than any production ever done.

That's amazing! Congratulations! Hero sounds like such a fun role...My boyfriend is Hero in his high school's production right now, so I get to hear all the fun angles. And the '60s thing sounds interesting...I'd love to see pics.

And another random thing...in the production my boyfriend is in, the Pseudolus is a girl (who is also another of my good friends). However, she's playing it as a guy. But futhermore, she's singing at least part of the music in the female octave? Does this sound strange to anyone else?

Actually it's not uncommon. I thought it might be a possibility in our show, but as much as I think it would be interesting.....thank God it didnt turn out like that.

Thank you... This is the weirdest audition process that I have ever been involved in, I was in the running to be Hysterium--but then the music director wanted to me sing a few of Hero's songs...Needless to say, I blew everyone else out of the water.It's going to be fun...

Normally I'm very iffy about shows being done in a more 'modern' time setting if they're more in the period genre, but that actually sounds really cool! After all, Forum is a farcicle comedy, and I think that the 60s feel may add to the comedy of the show. Also, baby boomer audience members will probably love it! But are you doing it as a 60s kind of thing, or are you combining 60s and Rome? The Rome+60s might be a little odd, but I'm sure it'll be very enjoyable :) And congrats on the great role!
