Post All Liesl's report here!
Hello! I'm playing Liesl in the Sound of Music at a theater near Seattle.

If you are playing Liesl in any production around the world, this is the forum for you! We can share input on character detailing, roleplay as Liesl herself, tips for costuming, and just have fun with our well-earned roles!

Any thoughts to build off of?

hey! i'm auditioning for Leisl in about a week. I've always wanted to play her, so i'm really nervous. I need to pick between two songs... either Till There Was You, or It Might As Well Be Spring. If anyone has any thoughts about that, let me know. I've chosen my monologue..it's from Diary of Anne Frank.

This is for a community theatre production, so i'm hoping if i don't get Leisl, i could be Louisa maybe. Anyways, I'll keep everyone updated.

Oh yes! You messaged me earlier about your audition song!

Both of the songs you mentioned seem great...whichever one shows more personality would probably be best.

Your monologue seems neat! I'd love to see some of it.

Good luck, and definitely keep us posted!! :D

I've never actually played the role (I'm not even an actor *gasp!shock*), but I just wanted to let you both know the character's name is Liesl. Sorry if it sounds petty, but I like the character so much, it was troubling me to see her name spelt wrong.

Thank you so much! I feel very silly having spelt it wrong....

You've saved me lots of humiliation in the future! Looking around my profile, I spelled it that way a couple of times...I was super mixed up!

Thanks again!

xoxo Steffi

Ooo! I am so excited.

I started working on Sixteen going on Seventeen yesterday.

I'm taking a very infatuated yet innocent approach on this character.

I've done Sound of Music twice once playing Brigitta and the other time playing chorus roles. The girl who played Liesal though didn't have the range for the role so it was really interesting to hear her sing it.

the part where Anne says, "Look Peter the sky. What a lovely, lovely day. Aren't the clouds beautiful?" etc.

But I'm cutting out Peter's lines and shortening it a bit.

There are actually monologues in the script itself where you wouldn't have to cut out Peter's lines if your interested.
