Subject:Ashleigh Gray and Chris Passey Interviews
Posted by:sneakyangel.
Time:3:10 pm.

This week we're delighted to bring you to great interviews. We speak to the talented Chris Passey about his new charity project. Later in the show we speak with Ashleigh Gray, we speak about Wicked and what she is up to. We also have exciting news from Perfect Pitch Musicals.

About Chris Passey
A self taught pianist, Chris is a West Midlands based Composer/Lyricist, Musical Director and Vocal Coach.

Chris has a natural love for Musical Theatre and having trained with the National Youth Theatre, pursued this passion straight from Sixth Form College. In late 2006, Chris entered Chicago Rock Cafe's 'Rock Idol' contest, judged by Carrie and David Grant. Out of six thousand contestants and several National heats, Chris came second to Keith Jack, who went on to appear in BBC1's Any Dream Will Do.

About Ashleigh Gray
Ashleigh Gray is a British musical theatre performer who recently appeared as the standby for Elphaba in the London production of Wicked.

In 2004, Gray made her professional début as Kim in the UK national tour of the Boy George musical Taboo. She was also a soloist in the concert Notes from New York. Prior to this she played the role of Kirsty in Only You Can Save Mankind at the Edinburgh Festival. In 2006, she appeared in NHS the Musical at the Drum Theatre Plymouth and covered Rizzo and Jan in the UK national tour of Grease. In 2007, Gray performed the role of Emily in the European première of Myths and Hymns and again that year at the Finborough theatre.

On July 16, 2007, she joined the London company of the musical Wicked at the Apollo Victoria Theatre, where she performed in the ensemble and understudied the role of Elphaba. She played her first performance as Elphaba on February 6, 2008. She then became standby for the role of Elphaba, replacing Cassidy Janson on June 9, 2008. She left the show on March 27, 2010, with her last performance as Elphaba taking place on March 12.

Subject:Theatre Buttons
Posted by:theatrebuttons.
Time:9:56 pm.
Hello there :)

I'm gauging interest in Broadway/theatre-themed buttons, keychains and magnets. I feel that there is a lack of affordable, fan-created memorabilia, and I'm looking to correct that oversight. However, my investor wants an idea as to what I can expect sales to be like before agreeing to finance this endeavor.

I'm looking to create buttons that are original and not infringing on copyright, but still with a Broadway/theatre theme.

If anyone is interested in helping create designs and/or buying buttons (possibly keychains and magnets, as well) please let me know. Buttons will be 1 3/4" in diameter and cost $5 each (shipping within North America is included in the price, additional cost may be required for overseas shipping).

Subject:fake pee
Posted by:pankaks.
Time:8:10 pm.
Yes, fake urine. you read correctly.

here's the story.
I'm working on a play at the moment which requires one of the characters to actually urinate on stage. She has to stand over the top of another actor while he's lying on the floor with his hands tied behins his back, and she has to pee on him.

Now, before you ask this play is about King Cross in Sydney and the associated drugs, whores and corruption, so it's a bit, well, adult.

Here's where you kids come in.
I need to work out a way for my lovely actress to be able to fake pee because obviously real pee is gross and not an option. It needs to look as real and disgusting as possible, but as I'm the one who gets to wash the costumes and I'm dating the actor that gets peed on, obviously fake pee is better.
I'm thinking of somehow strapping the bag of fake pee to her underneath her costume with a tube going down to her knickers (she'll have two pairs on) underneath her teensy little hooker skirt. I just need to work out how to stop gravity working against me. She has to "pee" at a fairly specific moment, so I need to work out how to make the liquid release on cue. It has to be done as hands free as possible (ie, no reaching up her skirt to unplug anything), but she is able to squeeze the liquid pack slightly (it'll probably be put in her bra). As all student productions, this one basically has bugger all budget, but I probably have 15 bucks if I need it.

so, my fellow theatre nerds? any suggestions?

oh, and this is crossposted EVERYWHERE.

Time:9:41 pm.
Okay, so my high school is doing "The House of Blue Leaves" as the fall drama production, and
they've hit a snag of trying to figure out if a black and white television would give off a  blue glow or would it be a white glow? and how they could make this work on stage. Any ideas?

Subject:Lesson Ideas
Posted by:explosivespam.
Time:1:06 pm.
Hey folks,

I am a theatre teacher and I am finding myself with about 4-6 days to spare in both my 7th and  6th grade classes. What I cover between the three grades includes:

Costume Design
Theatre History
Literature Interpretation (forensics)
Readers' Theatre
Musical Theatre

I've previously included mime and it's well worth teaching, but I'm trying to avoid it for a while because I'm tired of it.

Any ideas? I'm willing to try some out-of-the-mold stuff like slam poetry.

Auditions for my school's production of "Tuna Christmas" are coming up, and I am in dire need of a monologue!  I'm 16, but I can play anyone up to 20 years of age but that's about it.  I really want the part of Charlene, but I'm pretty open!

What would be a good choice of monologue (preferably something you can share with me, or very easy to get a hold of)?
