Please be sure to read Ramayana Casting Reflections.
Ramayana Cast 2011 by Grade
With the Ramayana audition process completing, it is appropriate to acknowledge the challenges of casting both for performers and directors. For some, this will not be a big issue, while others may experience disappointment. The key is finding a way to move forward positively. Most of us have heard the statement before – every role is pivotally important – and while a bit of a cliché, it is proven true. Staring at the cast list, you will simply see a character title or group (like Demon Choir, Monkey or Demon) by your name. We may want to quickly categorize our roles as good or bad.
Welcome to the wonder that is the Mount Madonna School Ramayana!
Whether you are a first-timer or a returning veteran, be prepared for an exciting experience of growth, challenge and fun! Being in a play, and helping to produce a play, are major commitments that demand a great amount of personal time and effort. The key is to invest fully in the proceedings and enjoy the creative process of discovery all the way through our children’s wonderful performances.
- Get to the HURRAY! Find ways to look forward to perform. Commitment, dedication and spark comes easier when we embrace opportunity-
- Don’t go for getting the role; go for inhabiting character. For 90 seconds, live their life, think their thoughts, and move in their body. That’s exciting!
“…Into the woods you go again. You have to every now and then. Into the woods, no telling when. Be ready for the journey…Into the woods, each time you go, there’s more to learn of what you know.” [lyrics from the “Children Will Listen,” Finale, Into The Woods]
Mount Madonna School High School will offer Into the Woods! on Friday and Saturday, January 28 & 29 at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, January 30 at 2:00 p.m. For tickets, please call 408-847-2717.
A childless baker and his wife cannot have a child until they follow the bidding of the witch next door to get a cow as white as milk, the cape as red as blood, the hair as yellow as corn, and the slipper as pure as gold. Good thing that they’ve got neighbors named Jack, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Cinderella to help them before (and after) Happily Ever After. A good time to be had by all.
Adults $15.00 and students $10.00.
