Urinetown the Musical

You may have read in a previous entry about my involvement in Mesa Community Colleges Fall Musical. The show is Urinetown the Musical and I played Bobby Strong, the young hero that leads the people to revolution against the oppressive corporation that forces the people to pay a fee to take care of their personal business.

We opened last Wednesday to a very excited au
dience and then performed again on Thursday night, Friday night, Saturday night, and also a Saturday Matinee. I'm not going to lie, I was little worried about the show for a little while there. I mean, just a week ago, it seemed like we weren't going to make it. However, it really came together, and we turned out an pretty great show! We received a lot of praise and we had a good amount of people show up, considering that Urinetown is a show that not many people have heard of. It isn't Kiss Me Kate, or Oklahoma, or some other show that everyone knows, but it really did turn out to be a great show.

This has been my favorite show that I have done thus far. This show has always been one of my favorites, and when someone would ask me what my dream roles are, Bobby Strong would definitely be one of them. Now I've done it, and it really was a blast.

I'm a little sad now, however. There are no more rehearsals, so the time during the week I would spend rehearsing is now f
ree time. I'm not sure what to do with it. Also, it's going to be a lot harder to see all my new friends that I've made over the last few months. There is nothing left. It's a bit of a bummer. It happened so fast, and now it is over. But what can you do?

Also, the Choreographer put some clips of the show up. The recording quality is not that great, but you can watch them if you would like.

It's isn't Kiss Me Kate, of Oklahoma.

I think you meant "or" instead of "of" there. However, I don't want you to change it, because I'd rather go through life thinking there is some Oklahoman out there named "Kiss Me Kate", like "Lady Fanny of Omaha" or something.

Also, neither your pictures nor the link to the picture work.

Well I think I fixed the photos, and I did change the Kiss Me Kate of Oklahoma thing. I didn't really proofread this one, so that is what I get. Even though I changed it, that doesn't mean I don't believe that some Oklahoman didn't name their child, Kiss Me Kate. Even if someone hasn't, that isn't going to stop me from moving to Oklahoma and doing it myself.

What a fun show to do! And I'm sure you were a great Bobby Strong!

Does "for archival purposes" include posting on youtube? Just wondering.

I think your choreographer is doing something a little bit shady...

I forgot to mention, however, that the show was really good. And you were great!!

I guess it does! Thanks Danniey!
