Default Broadway/Musical Theatre Camp NES

Musical Theatre geeks near and far, come hither!

Yeah. So, this was inspired mostly by Lizzie and Emma on the Musicals thread, but it's also for anybody who knows a few musicals, stuff like that. C'mon, at least a few of you guys should know what Les Miserables is, what Wicked is? Newsies, anybody?

So basically, we're at a theatre camp that puts on Broadway musicals, or at least musicals that have been/are being performed in NYC. Depending on what happens, we can alter the story. Perhaps after the first musical, you don't wish to continue. Then your character simply doesn't make it when they audition. We will definitely do more then one.

Do not forget that there is also the light crew, and people who help out with the set. If that's what you drift towards, by all means, go for it. Also, please let the age range be between 13 and 18.

FORM:

Name:
Age:
Gender:
Appearance:
Personality:
Part of production*:

*Okay. This basically means: are you an actor? Or maybe part of the set design crew, or you work with lights and tech? We're not having a director mentioned (yeah, I know, weird), but you can mention you auditions. Just make sure that whoever watches your audition fits in character with the other people's versions of the "director".

Alright, that's my spiel. Join?


Name: Jen Winston
Age: 15
Gender: Female.
Appearance: Shoulder length light brown hair, dark brown eyes, caucasian. About 5' 3.
Personality: Always intensely excited about getting whatever part she gets, has good stage presence. However, she can be overly enthusiastic and accidentally hurt people's feelings. She's always happy for others though.
Part of production*: Actor.
Other: Started out believing she was heterosexual, but realized she was bisexual about a year or two ago.

Okay, that's the end of the scene.

YESHYESHYESH!!!!

Name: Catalina (Cat) Williams
Age: 15
Gender: F
Appearance: Elbow-length wavy dark brown hair and side-swept bangs. Fair skin, hazel eyes, and a beautiful smile outlined with light pink, thin lips. A tiny bit tall for her age, Cat's about 5'7"
Personality: She's outgoing around her friends, but when it comes to making new ones she gets really shy. Her main talent is actually singing, not acting, but her mother (who signed her up for the camp) figured she would do pretty well, anyways. Catalina prefers not to sing infront of anyone, much less a large crowd of people like she's going to have to. When she's forced to sing infront of people, she gets shaky and her voice starts to stutter a bit.
Part of production*: Actress

Name: Timothy Brets
Age: 17
Gender: M
Appearance: Spiked-up light brown hair (almost like an ashy blonde). Slightly tan skin, and sort-of a muscular build. Tim's also tall for his age, he's around 6'.
Personality: Really nice and funny, he's the kind of guy who can just make friends wherever he goes.
Part of Production: Backstage/set.

*Note: Timothy and Catalina already know eachother from growing up in the same apartment complex for most of their lives. They came together as friends.

Part of production*: Actor/Actress


*Can I make a guy too?*
Sure, provided you can handle both perspectives. Just make sure not to overwhelm yourself.

EDIT: Also to what Lizzie mentioned- make sure Scarlet has a little flaw. No character is perfect.

Name: Alice Thompson
Age: 15
Gender: female
Appearance: wavy, shoulder-length light brown hair; blue eyes; some freckles; pretty in an off-hand sort of way; average height and weight
Personality: very friendly; kind of na´ve; loves musicals more than anything and knows every line of every show, and is super excited for this camp; but when it comes down to it, she has horrible stage fright and is terrified of being in the spotlight, though she tells herself that's where she's meant to be
Part of production*: actress

Name: Max Thompson
Age: 15
Gender: male
Appearance: brown hair (darker than Alice's); blue eyes; freckles; tall for his age, and sort of built
Personality: one of those guys that likes to hang back and blend in with a group of friends; very nice, but can come off like he doesn't care what you're saying; observant, and because of that has to look after Alice sometimes
Part of production*: actor

Note: Alice and Max are twins, though people don't see it because Max looks a lot older than Alice. Alice found out about this camp and instantly got their parents to let her go. Both their parents work over the summer, and because of that, Alice was able to convince their parents to sign Max up as well, although he has no interest in going. (Their parents told Max that it would be a "good experience".) So Alice is pulling Max along reluctantly, and Max is only doing it because his parents have already signed him up, and he doesn't want to upset his sister.

Here's an idea.

First of all, this should be one of those camps where after you sign up, you audition but no matter what you get into the show (if you're terrible, you just get put into company - and if you don't want to do that you can just be light crew or something) and we can do multiple shows (because we don't have to say straight-out how long this camp is).

Second of all, we should say that this camp can have, like, 20 or 30 kids, and then we can make a list so whenever you're talking about some of the kids, it's always the same kids. We can put our characters on this list, and if someone quits, their character can still be there but it will just be a background character. (This way, we won't have 700 unnamed characters running around, and we also won't have your character talking to someone and then that character just disappearing.) That also puts a limit on how many people can join.

Third, PLEASE NO MARY JANES. YOUR CHARACTER CAN'T BE AMAZING AT EVERYTHING. (This seems to happen a lot in these talent-related NESes, so I'm just putting that out now.)

Fourth, we should start with auditions.

To the first and second: Yes, thank you SO much for mentioning this. To the third: YOU MUST FOLLOW THIS RULE. Please, if your character is perfect, they aren't a good actor. Fourth, once other people join, I'll do a post.

Or we should have a permanent cast list. And if you join late, you can replace one of the non-KPer characters.
