I NEED A STAGE MANAGER! [16 Jul 2006|01:57pm]
Calling all theatre enthusiasts who attend Newton South High School! I am in need of someone to apply with me as my stage manager for the Student Directing Festival. I have choosen this HYSTERICAL one act entitled: Variations on the Death of Trotsky. It is based on the legendary murder of the Russian Revolutionary, Leon Trotsky. History tells us that Trotsky was attacked by one of Stalin's followers with an ice-pick and killed, but playwright David Ives has a few other ideas or variations, if you will.

I'm looking for a stage manager who is capable of being organized and has some knowledge about how theatrical performances are brought to life. All I need from you for the application is your e-mail, phone number, and a resume that includes on stage and back stage experience, as well as any relavent training or classes. My application is due Monday, September 11th and I would like to have a stage manager and their resume before school starts. Please, please, please, leave me comment or e-mail me at bluegirl56@rcn.com if you are at all interested.

P.S. If I'm selected to direct this means that neither I nor my stage manager would be able to audition for any spring productions.

Ruthless plugging [30 May 2006|10:14pm]
[ mood | distressed ]

This is not publicity, nay it is more of a plea. Please come to see Ruthless. I'm down on my hands and knees begging you to come. We have loads of tickets still to sell. And frankly, it's possibly one of the funniest shows South has ever put on. Even if you already have a ticket your experience will be impaired if the house is only half full. This is the kind of production meant to be enjoyed by a packed audience who is ready to piss there pants due to their hysterical laughter. So tell your friends, your grandparents, and your bus driver to come see this show. The cross dressing and my akward display of sexuality should be enough to attrack an army of theatre patrons, but alas it is June, we have a small cast, and an extra show so the numbers just aren't there. And I heard Fred Phelps is coming to protest the disgusting transgendered and gay characters in this smut of a play... SO COME SEE IT!

If anyone likes The Strokes and is free this evening I have an extra ticket. It's $35 and the concert starts at 7:30. Leave a comment if you want it and we'll discuss how I will get you said ticket or if you want to take the T with Belle and myself.

A rebel without a clue [30 Jan 2006|09:16pm]
[ mood | frustrated ]

The world is just not ready.... It's sad, but true. It's unfortunate that it has to end like this but it's just way too ahead of its time. Even the people involved just don't really get it, and I can't blame them for it. It's totally understandable.

AAAHH! FUCKING KANYE WEST IS NOT FUCKING JESUS! GIVE ME A FUCKING BREAK! You are a rich egotistical rapper, nothing more. Sometimes I feel like Rolling Stone spends more time and effort trying to make their covers contraversial than they do actually writing the shit inside.

You know what movie blows my mind? Saved! I friggin' love that movie. It's just so deep and true without being preachy or pretentious. And Mary Louise-Parker is Hester Prynne. End of story. I also like how at the end of the movie it doesn't make Evangelical Christians look like villians. They're just people doing what they believe is right, even if what they believe is right is really messed up.

The Strokes are rockin' my socks right now. They're my flava of the week. And you know what's not rockin' my socks? The Grammys. What the hell. You're not awarding music, you're awarding people's bad taste. And you know what's really awesome? The Strokes and Kings of Leon are buddys. So when me and Caleb Followill get married I can hang out with Julian Casablancas anytime I want. That sounds like a sweet deal to me.

On a lighter note. Last night was so friggin' fun. I really enjoyed Improv Boston and the lovely Sharon, they're awesome. Wait, but they're in Cabridge, wtf? This cast is possibly my favorite of all times, no offense to the Ducklings. You guys were pretty cool as well. I'm really looking forward to watchin' some murder mystery movies with y'all this afternoon.

Belle: Doesn't the name -censored- make you wanna laugh?
Me: No, it makes me wanna pee in a cup.

Friday night my house was without power for 12 hours. It was not fun. Although there is something very authentic about reading Frederick Douglass by candle light.

Now I'm off to write my paper on the Scarlet Letter with the help of my good friends from Pearl Jam.

The Laramie Project [16 Oct 2005|03:52pm]
[ mood | anxious ]

It didn't hit me until today how closely connected our production of The Laramie Project is to the actual murder of Matthew Shepard and all the events that followed. Our Boston Herald article is on the front page of Matthew's web page. Every time a production of this show is done the townspeople of Laramie must hear about it. This play is so new and very few productions of it have been put on sucessfully without getting shut down. And on top of this FRED PHELPS is coming to protest at the Saturday performance. We're not just putting on a performance, we're actively fighting hatred and our message is already reached far beyond the borders of Newton. I am simply amazed by how powerful this show is going to be and I'm honored to be a part of it.

By the way...

You'll be a dentist.... [10 May 2005|09:03pm]
[ mood | annoyed ]

Let me start this entry by saying I am very very skeptical of dentists and the dentistry profession in general. I think it has little to no point. As long as I can eat with my teeth I don't care if they're yellow or crooked or poorly shaped. Let me also inform you that I have an extreme aversion to blood, needles, and pain. With that info in the back of your head let me now explain the annoying happenings of todays dentist visit. So my mom picks me up from school early cause I have a free block and tells be that my dentist appointment is more than just a cleaning, I'm having a tooth sealed which usually involves novicane. So when we get to the dentist I just happen to mention that if she pulls out a needle I'm walking out of that office. So she says that I won't need novicane and there will be no needles involved. But of course the entire ten minutes I'm in that chair and they're drilling out my teeth, she won't stop making gibes about the needle thing. I know you do this kind of thing everyday, but some of us don't think dentistry is so natural as you think is Dr.Namedaftersomecarcompany. All dentists are crooks and shady characters. Do not trust them because at some point they will hurt you and you'll wish you brushed your teeth with sticks.

Crazy hippie rant is done.

And that's my new philosophy [01 May 2005|07:16pm]
[ mood | discontent ]

I've heard a lot of people bitch and moan about a lot of different things, but in the end we are all searching for one thing: happiness. I think when other people start setting goals for you and deciding how you should be spending your time is when you become unhappy. Atleast that's when I become unhappy. For some it's their parents who tell them they have to look different or act different. For some it's the school system that makes us study every minute detail about crap we don't care about. Good grades no longer make me happy because that simply isn't something I want. The only time I feel truely happy is when I have just put on a performance that I think was successful, or when I've just finished an art project that I'm proud of. Some students can be comepletely content with getting good grades and getting into an ivy league school. Some students can be happy smoking pot at some party with fifty kids they don't even know. Some of us want something different, something in between. If we were just left to persue our happiness and not be told what to do or want by others, this world would be a better place.

[ mood | excited ]

Despite the fact that this week has been pretty stressfull it has all been worth it because of the past two days. These perfromances have honestly been fantastic. I don't think I ever realized what a great show we had on our hands until we performed it. I know I'm not super tight with everyone in my cast but I still feel like I got to meet some cool people who I otherwise would not have met. There's still one more show left and I hope that it'll be even better than the last two.

Black Comedy was hysterical and the lighting was amazing. The Roots of Chaos was good but at the same time it made me scared. Usually I find shows in which everyone dies amusing and entertaining but for some reason this show struck a chord with me that I found kind of odd. I can't really explain...

The cast party was pretty fun. I know that a few years ago I never would have even dreamed of dancing around like an idiot to stupid pop music. As tight as I am wound up now I was wound up even tighter a few years ago.

It's funny how high school puts you in new and interesting situations, some good, some bad. I'd very rarely been around people who actually had drama in their life. It's awful to feel like you want to be someone's security blanket all the time but you're not able to.

Everything I have eaten today my stomach has just been like "I WILL NOT DIGEST YOU SILLY FOOD!" I've been getting these uncomfortable stomach aches after I eat. I think it's because I'm nervous/excited about the show.

I woke to to a Paul Simon song this morning and because of that spent the greater part of this morning contemplating Simon & Garfunkel. They had some ok tunes but at the same time I think Simon & Garfunkel is better minus the Garfunkel. Paul Simon came out with an entire Brazilian album and used all these African rythems. I think he became a little more creative when he was on his own. Garfunkel just adds air. Does anyone really need air in their music?

P.S.
What's with this backlash against U2? Do you people honestly think your Disney tunes and Maroon 5 are that cool? Give me a break. You can't deny that they are a fantastic band, they write some great music and Bono is the messaih. End of story. All I have to say is "Uno, dos, tres, catorce."

There's a kinda a sort of... cost [08 Apr 2005|11:54pm]
[ mood | nerdy ]

Running shoes are a lot like the feet of an elephant. They are enormous and just as attractive as an elephant's foot. That is my revelation of the day.

I have just accepted the fact that I'm unable to make new friends and talk confidently with large groups of people. End of story.

I'm listening to Wicked for the first time in a while and I'm just remembering what a fucking amazing show that is.

Last day of N.E.W. tomorrow. I will miss my kiddies.

The Wonders is an amazing movie.

Guy in Recording Studio: What do you call that?
Guy Patterson: I am Sparticus.

Goodnight.

Not expecting that.... [19 Mar 2005|05:04pm]
You scored as Satanism. Your beliefs most closely resemble those of Satanism! Before you scream, do a bit of research on it. To be a Satanist, you don't actually have to believe in Satan. Satanism generally focuses upon the spiritual advancement of the self, rather than upon submission to a deity or a set of moral codes. Do some research if you immediately think of the satanic cult stereotype. Your beliefs may also resemble those of earth-based religions such as paganism.

I need feedback [12 Mar 2005|04:45pm]
So I'm cutting my monologue for One Acts/Original Play so I want you guys to tell me if it makes sense:

Cushion by Steve Moffat
You bring these things into our homes. They sit on our chairs. They watch our televisions. Now, I just need to know, on behalf of all mankind, I just need to ask, please... What are they for? I mean, look at them! Look at the chubby little buggers! Just sitting around everywhere! What are they, pets for chairs? Come on, you sell them. What are they for? You sit on them? Ah! You see, that's where you're wrong! Nobody sits on them. It's not part of the whole sitting process. It just lies there. It's fat litter! It's a sofa parasite! So please - once and for all, tell me why on Earth you would want me to sit on one of these?

CSW (again) [10 Mar 2005|08:08pm]
[ mood | productive (not) ]

Tomorrow or Saturday I should be recieving mail from CSW regarding my acceptance into the school. I really want to go or else I wouldn't have applied. I want to hear from the school if I get in but if I don't get in I don't want to know. I don't think I'll be as upset as I am when I don't get plays if I don't get into CSW. I know that if I don't get in it's nothing personal. One of the only reasons I wouldn't get in is because I'm not a Latino from Minnesota who wants to be a boarding student. Meaning they probably have lots of local white females who are day students and want to vary their student body. If I had applied as a freshman I definately would have gotten in because there are more slots for freshman. (This is when I get really un-modest) I have excellent grades and I'm involved in a lot of arts activities and I did outstandingly on my SSATs. I would be a great canidate for that school and I think my application shows it. So that is why I would not be personally offended. I would however be really upset because I hate South. The End.

Do you really want to hurt me? [09 Mar 2005|03:05pm]
[ mood | blah ]

If you actually went to school today you are a pussy and I frown on you. That's a bit of an exaggeration... my point is that attending school today had no point so I didn't go.

Ew. I'm having major skin problems. Acne has never been a big issue for me until now. Why is my face suddenly deciding to rebel from me? We used to be so close and now I don't feel like I even know it anymore. *dramatic sob*
