March Madness (theatre geek style)

Long time no see.

Partly because life is dull. The theatre I often get contracted at is doing it’s large fundraiser which is a sort of March Madness (a Basketball Tournament for those who don’t speak sports, like me!) for theatre geeks. They have pit plays up against each other and every vote (point) is 1$. The play with the most points at the end of each round progresses to the next round until the final count down. Well, here we are. The final count down. It is an amazing version of Robin Hood vs. a play called The Curious Savage which I am not very excited about. Each round Savage has managed to sneak in at the last minute and win.
Needless to say, I would really love to do Robin Hood. I feel like there are a lot of fun things that can be done with the script. Between the stage combat, the romance, the comedy and the heart, I feel like it stands a real chance to be something that could be a strong piece of theatre. Something that doesn’t have to be adapted, cut-and-pasted, or adjusted by the director so that it has will have some value to an audience. It’s not everyday you stumble across a script with all of these elements.
But, I am not allowed to voice my opinion publicly. Hence why you are reading it here. I am not allow to show bias in anyway. I just have to sit back and watch it all unfold. My anxiety is high but I am trying to stay mellow and tell myself that no matter what happens, it will be a good summer. Let me rephrase that. It will be a summer of theatre. And I love theatre.

If you feel like Donating, here is how. Remember, every vote counts. Last time Robin Hood just barely squeaked in so they really do count!
Here is how you cast your vote:
– Visit www.studio1online.org
– Click the large yellow DONATE button at the right of your screen
– Enter the amount you wish to donate.
– Where it says “Write a note”, write in the show you want your votes to go for. Each dollar is one vote!
