Heres the past few shoes I've done:

*Christine Penmark- BAD SEED
*Cookie Cusak- RUMORS
Mrs. Chumley- HARVEY
Liesl von Trapp- THE SOUND OF MUSIC
Nancy/Ensemble- BYE BYE BIRDIE
*Issachar/Dancer- JOSEPH...DREAMCOAT
Red Hook Neighbor-A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE- I learned so much about acting from this show and watching professional actors every night increased my own abilities and made me think about things I never use to think about on the stage
Munchkin/Principle Dancer- THE WIZARD OF OZ
and lots of ensemble roles
* My Favorite Roles- I like the straight acting better than musical theatre- I'm really self consicious about singing on my own
I love being in ensemble- Favorite Ensemble show was JOSEPH and BYE BYE BIRDIE and yes I was a boy in the JOSEPH- it was so excellent!
Theatre is so much fun!

I just started college, so most of these shows are chorus roles due to the fact that the directors played favorites and that there were HUGE amounts of talent at my very large high school.

The Man Who Came to Dinner - Maggie
Anything Goes! - reporter
Joseph and the Amazing... - chorus
Nights of Broadway (review show) - chorus
Les Miserables - Whore 1/chorus
Footloose - Bickle
Footloose (yes, I've done it twice) - teen chorus
Words and Music: 2001 Tony Awards (review show) - teen chorus
Words and Music: 2003 Tony Awards (review show) - featured soloist (sang "On My Own")

Right now I'm a stewardess in "Titanic"--it's a fun show so far, and I can't wait until we start blocking :)
"You're the worst thing to happen to musical theatre since Andrew Lloyd Webber!" --Family Guy

"Shut up! It's been 29 years!!!" --the incomparable Patti LuPone in her MUCH DESERVED Tony acceptance speech for Gypsy.

PIRATES OF PENZANCE -- Played The Pirate King twice. Once in a traditional production, once in the Papp 1980 production. The latter is MUCH more fun!!

R & H CINDERELLA -- agreeing with the 'ugh' from above.

SECRET GARDEN -- Played Lt. Wright once and then played Dickon last winter. (A 6 foot 5 twenty-nine year-old Dickon, I might add. But, hey, I had the right voice.)

DREAMGIRLS -- The Pat Boone guy and ensemble parts.

MOBY DICK -- A workshop of the Doug Katsaros/Mark St. Germain sung thru show and I played Elijah.

SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH BOREDOM -- Soldier and Alex.

THE WHO'S TOMMY -- The Minister and the Hawker. (same show.)

GODSPELL -- Judas/John the Baptist

IS THERE LIFE AFTER HIGH SCHOOL? -- The 'High School All Over Again' guy. (Worst. Song. Ever. by the way.)

JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR -- Peter

THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW -- Two years as Narrator

Ensemble stuff in 110 IN THE SHADE, did PERSONALS, a play of ANASTASIA .. I think that's about it. Nothing going on now, some people want me to play The Dentist in a local production of LITTLE SHOP in February but I'm not sure I want to do it.

Golde (Fiddler on the Roof)
Katherine (Pippin)
Mother (Barefoot in the Park)
Pat (Li'l Abner)

Emma (The Magic Flute: An Awfully Big Adventure)
Hillary (J'Accuse)
The Baroness (The Sound of Music.... yes, the quote from The Opposite of Sex was my mantra during that show)
Meg (Brigadoon)

I won't mention the role I played in The Wizard of Oz.... So many painful memories....

I should also mention that I'm hopefully going to reach a point by the end of sophomore year where I'm giving more of a bent to playwrighting (since that's when I'll start doing studio shows each semester) and dabbling in some design. I like the backstage life of an actor, but I'm a terribly lazy, undisciplined person. I'm also a terrible smoker which doesn't help me explore texts vocally.

And I love how between the bulk of us on this board, we could re-enact several shows.

And I love that our Mr. Parker played a Jodi Foster obsessive (I used to use Lynette's part of "Unworthy of Your Love" for audition songs, before I got the sheet music for "How Did I End Up Here" and "My Simple Christmas Wish")
