Matchmaker for Thespian Musical IE?
Myself and two friends of mine want to sing Matchmaker for a Small Group Musical IE at our Thespian District competition because we all love the song
However...We aren't sure who to cast as whom.
I don't have any formal training as a singer, but I can act and have tons of dance experience. I'm 5'2" with dark hair and eyes. From what I understand, theoretically, in a full production I would make an okay Chava. Being the shortest of the three this sounds okay, except I would prefer Tzeitel since she does the least amount of singing in this song.
My friend Kaitlin has had loads of training as a singer, and is around 5'8". My other friend Lauren is about 5'6" and has a moderate amount of training, but a very pretty singing voice.
SO I guess my question to you experts (
) would be who do you think should play which sister? I know height shouldn't be a huge issue because age doesn't necessarily correspond to height. However, this one song is the only thing the judges will be seeing (as opposed to an entire production), so I would prefer to showcase our talents but at the same time not make them wonder why we made a certain decision (whatever that decision may be). I guess if I was Tzeitel, Lauren was Hodel, and Kaitlin was Chava is would sort of be like a reverse stairstep but...Is that going to make the judges scratch their heads?
