“Nobody wanted to leave. Ya know, you generally have people come and go and they fulfill their commitment. No one wanted to go anywhere. We couldn’t imagine having a better experience on anything else, so we just came to work every night with these giddy expressions on our face…”—
-Jenna Leigh Green, Navigate the Maze
Jenna Leigh Green, the original Ivy from the Los Angeles production of Bare, comments on the comradery of the cast involved in the production during a documentary of the journey of “bare” from inception.
I can easily say that the text itself brings cast members together in a very loving way. The students at St. Cecillia’s have grown up together and been through thick and thin (especially during the show). Because of the nature of the characters, the actors have had a tendency to grow together and really bond into an ensemble. We experience this during the stage reading first. In the few weeks we spent rehearsing together, we bonded as a group and it was hard to see some cast members have to leave to not perform in the full production.
The same has happened within the group that has been assembled for the full production opening July 17. We have laughed, we have cried, we have inside jokes. The cast has become a family and its a warm hearted feeling every time you walk in the rehearsal room.
Come see the family of “bare: a pop opera” opening July 17 through August 17, 2013 at Richmond Triangle Players.
Hey guys! As a lot of you know, I’m working on the incredible musical Bare: A Pop Opera with Richmond Triangle Players. Check out our blog, following the rehearsal process, actor interviews and more! IT’S SO COOL.
Guys, check out my final reel from “The Next Great Voice Talent” with Studio Center! These three sides were the last three recordings of finals, myself and 10 other people competing for the $100,000 contract. I didn’t win the big check… but I got top three in the nation AND they signed me to their label anyway! YAY! Check it out. :)
Impossible to choose! Currently? Hmmm… Flight- the duet by Sutton Foster and Megan McGinnis.
21. Have you ever wasted your time on someone?
I am not usually a believer in “time wasted”. Every experience or relationship you have with someone- good or bad- allows you to learn lessons and make you a stronger, smarter person. Sounds cliche, but ees true!
39. If someone could be cuddling you right now, who would you want it to be?
Woah- delayed reaction, totally didn’t see that my inbox has ish in it.
12. Is there something that you would like to say to someone?
Nothing particularly bubbling inside me but… sure, a few!
Dad- You are wonderful and I don’t know what I’d do without you. Mahlon- Thank you for providing me with humor and balance. Elizabeth- You will always be my best friend. Hitler- Fuck you.
37. Did you have a dream last night?
Actually, yes. Haha, I dreamt that the Hairspray cast list went up and like NO theatre majors were on it, and Tracy was double cast and the cast list was like SUPER long with really obscure roles on it- like “dog walker” and stuff. It was sad. This wait is agonizing, clearly.
I feel awesome about the work I did at callbacks. Honestly, I did the absolute best I can do- and I feel like I am really fitting for the role. It’s been a dream role of mine for a while now, but I refuse to get my hopes up. All I can do is wait- the rest is up to fate! Hey that rhymed! Fingers crossed.
