Good luck!

(Though you've probably had opening night already. I've been away at camp all week, so I'm a little behind.)

I was one of Reno's Angels..we had a lot of tap dancing, but I completely got jipped..

I got called back for Erma and was up against two other girls. They ended up double casting the show and the two other girls both got Erma but I got an angel..they needed four good tap dancers, and I happened to be one of the four that could do the combination we were taught at auditions..The cast list was handwritten and under one of the girl's names next to Erma there were huge eraser marks..and I'm absolutely sure that my name was there before her's. :( oh well.

That stinks to be THAT close to getting the role. But you should feel special that you're a better tap dancer than those girls! :lol:

Wow. That does sorta stink. But I mean, if you look on the bright side, those girls dont get to be in every show. And YOU do.

I played Ling (one of the 2 Chinese converts). Probably one of the most fun shows I've ever done.

The whole cast was so upset when the show finished. We never wanted this one to end!

I was the purser and the steward, which we just pretended were one and the same character (which we called the purser).

I almost didn't do the show. I hadn't auditioned because, having no background in Cole Porter at the time, I thought it was going to be lame. But not enough people auditioned, so the director cast the principal roles with what was there, and called about five of us and guilt tripped us into doing it as a personal favor. I'm so glad she did because it was my first exposure to CP and now I adore him...and I know I never would have done it if she hadn't been desperate. lol.

I was lucky enough to be cast as Billy in my school's production this summer. It was the most fun I've ever had in a show. We did the '62 version, and despite all the hate regarding it around here, I really enjoyed being a part of it!

Post Beaumont '87 Version
Lord Evelyn Oakley in the '87 version. I've seen the original version at a neighboring high school and I must say that the '87 version is a vast improvement on the first. It's certainly a lot more funny and has a better part for Evelyn.

We did the '62 version as well, and found the entire thing to be wonderful.

It's very rare to do a show where the cast still laughs at every joke and punchline, but we had the exact same level of energy and enthusiasm for this show from the first read-through to the final performance.
