Plausibility of a Female Judas?
Hello all and sundry! I am a student who happens to be taking "Heaven on Their Minds" to my state Thespian Festival in a few weeks. I'm an alto, so the song suits my voice exceptionally well, and I like to think that I have a pretty encompassing understanding of the charachter. The only problem is: I'm a girl. Do you think the judges will care, and if so, how can I evade looking out of place? Any tips you can give me on performing HOTM would be exptremly welcome. Also, do you think that someday Judas could be viewd as a gender-fluid role? It's never struck me as particularly sex-restrictive, despite the fact that it is a male part and some prodcutions choose to play up the Judas/Jesus/Mary love traingle? Any thoughts?
