Tish, I get to skip the pep rally, so you will get a sammich after all.
... I finished the assignment in here yesterday... freeeeeeeeeeedom...
I want to direct a production of Hamlet starring my classmates. I'd want to be Hamlet or Ophelia, but there's no way in hell I could pass for a man *pokes chest* and I'm not pretty enough to be believable as Ophelia. So I shall direct.
The Cast (more than one suggested for each because I am incredibly indecisive. I am sure Michael will help me revise this list, as I've not encountered many of these people in ages and probably don't know them as well as he does)
Hamlet - Hmmm.. Either Mark, Nick or David S. Mark is a good enough actor, but David S broods better. Nick resembles David, and from what I remember he's a pretty good actor... He might work best. I've never seen David act.
Ophelia - either Nicole, Kelsey, or maybe Tish. Or perhaps Catherine, Tandy's younger sister...
Claudius - perhaps Michael. (I wanna see him play a bad guy, dammit) I also think it would be very interesting to see Ben play Claudius. *snicker*
Gertrude - er... Not sure. I'd suggest Kelsey but she looks way too young. Makeup could alter that, but it'd be a bitch to apply.
Laertes - if Mark is not Hamlet, he must be Laertes. Otherwise I think Matt, this guy in our band who plays French Horn, would do well.
Horatio - Evan? Hmm. Or KK. Maybe.
Polonius - Heheh. Ben, if he isn't Claudius and if he is, perhaps Hirsch or Ziggy, if we could get 'em to act. I know Gabriel could do it well, but he looks too young.
Ghost - Michael would make a good ghost if he doesn't play Claudius. So would Hirsch.
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern - Chase and Eric, John and Greg, or Kiem and Chris
Clowns - pick two: Paul, Robert, Tim, John, Greg, Dan, Zach G, Cameron, or Zack H.
Fortinbras - Matt, if he's not Laertes. Or maybe Drew, Alan's younger brother
Osric - Alan or Steven
Captain - Chris, Kiem, Tim, Nicole, Tish, Jonathan
Courtiers/Soldiers/etc (Voltemand, Cornelius, random Gentleman, Marcellus, Bernardo, Francisco, Reynaldo, English Ambassador) - Pick some: Robert, Alan, Steven, David S, David C, David A, Zack H, Chris, Kiem, Jonathan, Dan, Drew.
Scene: I'm sure we could come up with some sort of 'castle' to serve as Elsinore. If Catherine plays Ophelia it's likely we could convince her to let us use her house (it resembles a castle) if not, we can at least get a few good outside shots and try to make it seem like the characters are inside it. 9-9;;
