"The Man Who Came To Dinner"


Here are some pictures from my play last Saturday :D I played the role of Mrs. Stanley(Daisy), which was a good experience, especially since I was playing my polar opposite. (I'll be writing below the images about my experience) :) Oh, and the captions I put below were some of the ones I used on my Facebook album :)

Here's a small synopsis of the play - The play is set in the small town of Mesalia, Ohio in the weeks leading to Christmas in the 1930s. The exposition reveals that the famously outlandish radio wit Sheridan Whiteside of New York City was invited to dine at the house of rich factory owner Ernest W. Stanley and his family. However, before Whiteside enters the house, he slips on a patch of ice outside the front door and injures his hip. He is attended by Dr. Bradley, the absent-minded town physician, and Miss Preen, his frantic nurse.



                                          Before the performance, in my first outfit



     
                                                                 Me with some of my stuff


                                                        Putting a plant on the piano


                                        My character, Daisy Stanley(the mother), talking to their servant, Jane



                                                 My character with her son, Richard(the actor, who is, awkwardly, approximately a year older than me XD).








                                Oh crap, it's a famous person! I'M GOING TO DIE!!!!! XD




                                He sure looks sick, doesn't he? ;) (the main character, the guy in the wheelchair, says 'I may be sick,' here).



                             Must not look like a raging fangirl, must not look like a raging fangirl....                                                




         
                                                                  *GASP!*



                                                    I really do hate being sued :p





                                              Oh geez, he's mean. This is not fair!! :P




I have a BAAAAD feeling about this XD ( I like this one) :)



I think I shall dramatically faint...naw, I'll do that later



                                           Professor Metz, Mr. Whiteside, and Bert Jefferson



                                Oh crap, convicts are in my house! To the Batcave! To get my lightsaber! XD




Miss Preen and Mr. Whiteside 


                                                      Augh, my husband is being annoying again :P (the character was definitely a bad husband- I have no idea why she married him :P).




For some reason this picture reminds me of a Katy Perry song 


                                    I think I shall turn into River Tam(character from Firefly) if you don't stop trying to sue us all the dang time!



                                                     I like this one :)



                                           ERNEST!!! COME BAAAAAAACK!!! :P



My character's two children, June and Richard 




                                                Mr. Whiteside and Dr. Bradley



                                           Since you ran off and eloped, I have decided to give all of your Christmas presents to myself, MWHAHAHAHA XD




Alright, fine, Ernest, I'll stomp on that spider for you



                                                           Maggie and Beverley Carlton



                                                 We all look so angry here XD




                                              Hey, I actually think I did a good job on my fake crying!! :D Yippee! (no tears, since I haven't exactly got that all figured out yet; I just scrunched my face up and put my voice on edge).



                                             Revenge of the Sith is too much, I tell you! WAAAAA!!! D:






                                             A Penguin BIT me!!!




                                           Look, it's the TARDIS...I mean, the Mummy Case XD (After the play, the boy playing the doctor went over to the radio, which the adults were trying to get to work, and he said "I'm a doctor, I can fix anything" and when I heard that, I pointed over to the Mummy Case and said "Look, it's the TARDIS!! XD). 

Also, during our morning practice, the boy playing Beverley Carlton/Metz decided to play a prank on the girl playing Lorraine Sheldon(girl in Turquoise and white dress), by hiding in the Mummy case. When she came to open it, she found it hard to open and said something about them needing to make it easier for her to open. As she said that, the guy leaped out from the mummy case, yelling "Ta-DA!" It was hilarious!!! :D 





                                            Not again! :O



After the performance, in my second outfit. 


So, I had an awesome time doing this play!! :D The cast was great to work with and were very intelligent and mature, while being able to have fun, which was great! :D. I also enjoyed that they, like the Annie cast, were pretty welcoming and I felt pretty good around them(though I personally felt more excepted in the Annie cast, but that may be for personal reasons and the fact that the group of kids was smaller and there were a lot of adults). 
I have to say, it was one of my best performances to date, which was awesome! It was a good experience playing my polar opposite and demonstrating I can play all kinds of roles(from strong, awesome girl, to evil and/or complicated villain, to total wimp, yeah I can play all of it!! XD I even did a romance scene with an older guy in an audition a couple of years ago). I got a lot of compliments on the part and apparently I was convincing, which always makes me happy. I am also very proud of how I did my very first scene(which I have the most lines in), since it was the best I'd ever done it. I hope I can show everyone the play someday :) Since I haven't done a play since I was fifteen, it was nice to get back into the acting world(since I was busy with other things last year, like CVI and vacation). :D I definitely can't wait to do more acting! Hollywood, here I come!!! :D

I hope you enjoy the post and May the Force be with you! :D

      Glad you liked it! XD That one is probably my favorite XD. I just don't get why my character wasn't chasing them out of her house; no way would I allow murderers in my house.
