If you could choose a show and a role, what would it be?
For me, a teenage soprano with red hair, I'd LOVE to play Ariel from The Little Mermaid. I'd also forever charish playing Natalie from All Shook Up. I LOVE that show and I LOVE that character. She'd be SO FUN to play!
Musical-wise, I would probably say Roxie from Chicago or Pirate Jenny from Threepenny Opera. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzB6Pf-jemo for reference if you've never seen it.
Straight plays...Katharina from Taming of the Shrew, because I was named for that show. Harper from Angels in America. The daughter in Six Characters in Search of an Author. Either of the girls in No Exit.
Martha Jefferson from 1776
Johanna from Sweeney Todd
Claudia from Lestat: The Musical (I don't even like the show that much; I'm just a huge Anne Rice fan. ^^")
Wednesday from The Addams Family
Ilse from Spring Awakening (Which is my college theatre guild's musical next semester... *fingers crossed*)
Titania from A Midsummer Night's Dream
Anything from any Kerrigan-Lowdermilk musical
Abigail Williams from The Crucible
And sign me up for the "Natalie from Next To Normal" club. :D
I've given this way too much thought. xD
Like everyone else, Natalie from Next to Normal. Also, Draco from AVPM. (If I couldn't get Draco, I would gladly take Dean Thomas.) I would love to play one of the Delta Nu girls from Legally Blonde (just cause they know how to party). I'd also wanna play Motor-Mouth Maybelle from Hairspray or Tracy. There's probably more that I just can't think of right now...
um also Taz from Starship. Oh god, yeah Taz. Sooooo much. And count me in the AVPM Draco club.
I've always dreamed of playing Elphaba, as I'm sure many girls have :)
But I'd also love to play Mrs. Potiphar in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat because she's so obnoxious. Or Shilo from Repo! the Genetic Opera. I just really want them to put that on Broadway, but that'll probably never happen.
Mimi in Rent, Belle in Beauty and the Beast, any part in Les Miserables, any part in Wicked
Ohhh, I would love to be a female St. Jimmy, or whatsername, or Heather from American Idiot, or Mimi from RENT, or Cherri from rock of ages, or Meg in crimes of the heart <3333
Elle Woods - Legally Blonde
Mimi - Rent
Maria - West Side Story
Rosalia - West Side Story
Shilo - Repo the Genetic Opera (I don't know if this one counts but I'm saying it anyway)
I've always wanted to play Fantine from Les Mis, but don't have the pipes to play her, so I'd settle for anyone from Les Mis. I had also always wanted to play Annie, curse being too old for the role now!
Any disney princess (Belle, Snow White, Ariel, Mulan, Mary Poppins [kind of a disney princess]), Mrs. Lovett, Natalie Goodman, Elphaba (I regret nothing), Glinda (I still regret nothing), Maria/Anita de West Side Story, Sally Bowles, anyone in Spring Awakening, anyone in A Chorus Line (ah, but curse you incompetent dance skills), Adilade in Guys And Dolls, Jo in Little Women, Elle in Legally Blonde, Roxie in Chicago, Tracey in Hairspray, Millie in Thoroughly Modern Millie, anyone in The Wild Party, and anyone in Into the Woods.
It's a lot. I have a long career ahead of me...
