Post Starlight Express Forum Cast 2007
So, I got permission... here we go.

I’m going to be running a forum cast of the new starlight express.
If you don’t know what one is, basically you nominate yourself for a role, fill out the “audition” and post it in this thread. Then people vote, send their votes to me via PM. Then votes are counted and a cast list posted.

You’ve got two and a bit weeks to audition, the deadline being 13th July.
Votes can be sent anytime from then till 20th July. If they’re later than that... you’re too late. The cast list should be put up within the week.


Rulebook

1. Don’t moan about characters from the original not being included.

2. Voting for yourself is ok. Just don’t overdo it and vote for yourself as every character.

3. If you’re going to vote, vote for as many characters as possible, via PM. Please try to vote, especially if you take part in auditioning. And please, please think about who you vote for, no choosing names simply to fill up your vote list. If you are completely at a loss as to who to vote for, simply exclude that role from your list.

4. You can only receive one role (not including understudying a role)

5. If you audition for more that one role then please put them in order of preference in case of coming first for more than one, in that case you will receive your first preference. The other roles will be given to the runner up

6. In the event of a tie, the winner will be picked at random.

7. The first runner up will be understudy.

8. If someone receives no role, they will be either in the chorus, or (providing there are any roles no-one has auditioned for) put in an unfilled role.

9. Same gender where possible.

10. Keep your banners to the standard size, there’s an abundance of pictures of starlight express out there, promising for some snazzy banners which we don’t want to be deleted for being to large.

PM any questions to me.

I personally think characters should be based off London and not the UK tour as London was far better and I'm sure people who have seen both would agree with me.

Therefore, I think characters such as Krupp, Bobo, Espresso etc should be included and Hip Hoppers should be Rockies.

Screen Name: Vice (a.k.a. B-chan, TLT, Bealzabub)

Character(s) to Audition For:

1) Caboose (CB)
2) Electra
3) Nintendo (Hashamoto)

Why this character appeals to me:
I don't honestly know what draws me to these characters. I love the insanity of Caboose, and the diva-ness of Electra. And Nintendo? I just love Japan, as a culture.

Things in common between you and this character:
1) I'm abit nuts. I'm not very stable in my decision-making. I have a non-existant attention span.
2) I love glam and specticle. I can throw fits if I get angry, and... I do need minders every now and then.
3) I know a smatering of Japanese.
... I just like the character okay?

Screen Name: Wicked_boy
Character(s) to Audition For: Rusty
Why this character appeals to me: He is so cool and totaly reminds me of me. He's the little one with big hopes and dreams. He wants to win and over takes the "better" trains. And, he does win. He also gets the girl. Which is cool. Plus he get's to sing the title song, which I love.
Things in common between you and this character: He's the little nerdy one with big hopes and dreams and then gets them! He also listens to advice. He also gets the girl at the end, which has happened to me.

Picture (optional) :
Character(s) to Audition For:Dinah
Why this character appeals to me:
The accent, you have to love the accent :D
other than my liking for odd accents, I love U.N.C.O.U.P.L.E.D great solo. love it. I like her little storyline too, getting ditched and all (darn that pearl stealing her man *ahem*.. train) she gets overshadowed by pearl. But i reckon she's miint =D with two i's because thats better.
Her costume is rather cool too, not sure it would look quite so great on me but hey, this isnt REAL show so theres no worries about people running from the theatre at the sight of me in such a small skirt. Plus i love the fact she gets what she wants in the end. the sweet little "s.o.r.r.r.y" from greaseball. awwwhhhs.

Things in common between you and this character:
The love of small costumes ;)

lol. kidding... I relate to her guy troubles and whatnot.

Make the writing bold, a different colour and maybe add a link. I will also put it on my signature.
