    How very uplifting

    Whenever my mum makes me sweep the kitchen floor I always break into Castle on a Cloud
    Now theres an idea. My family would do i themselves rather than hear me singing...... I have a castle on a cloud on my window! When i was on holiday i was by te pool and was listening to Chicago, I had real trouble keeping quiet tho so i had to act it out in my head! I want to be able to sing and dance and be roxie!!

    Oooh I know what you mean about acting it out in your head.
    I usually conduct les mis and direct chess while listening to them on my headphones.

    But they'd all die and where would that leave you? Unless you were Cosette.

    Especially when Eponine is played by Lea Salonga. She makes the hairs stick up all over my body! What a gal!

    We did Les Mis last year in school! (I say we, but mostly mean 'they', I myself am not at all musical, but I was a 'techie' and one half of the SM double act!) My little sister was a lovely lady, my friends played Fantine, Eponine, Marius, the students/chain gang and a few were washer-ladies! We were the first school in Wales to do it and got loads of media coverage for it! I'm not a weepy person but I was in tears most nights! Empty Chairs at Empty Tables gets me everytime!

    We bought tickets for my mates 18th to see it in London, on that occasion we didn't cry, the complete opposite in fact, couldn't stop giggling when Fantine was dying...we were not desruptive to anyone, I don't think anyone even noticed (we were in the cheap seats up in the heavens) but my lungs nearly exploded with suppressed laughter and we all had tears streaming down our faces. We even got to speak to most of the cast (my musical mate has connections!) but sadly not Jon from S-Club7

    Wowie! You get to do GOOD musicals!! We did Return to the Forbidden Planet (wooo...?) and Anything Goes. We did do my favourite though - My Fair Lady (didnt get to be Eliza though...grr...one year too young!!) I went to see Oliver! and was totally inspired by the lady who played Nancy - so powerful!! When she died I was so upset (...me being 9 at the time).

    Ahh we did Return to the Forbidden Planet years ago! I got to control the sliding door thing and smoke machines!! As well as the normal set changes, calling cast to stage, setting lighting rigs, stage to box cans control and be the general dogsbody! All good fun! That was quite a good one as I remember, I can't have been more than 13 then though! I just remember proper rock 'n roll dancing on the steps and generally getting in the way of the cast!

    We did Jesus Christ Superstar the year before, that was simply amazing, I went to a Catholic school (not catholic myself though) so the intensity of it was unreal and incredibly emotional! The same friend that played Fantine was Pilate in JC*, slight role difference!

    This year's one wasn't quite the same, Sweet Charity, the same friend again (incredibly talented!!) played Charity! It was fun (our last one, so depressing!) but just not the same having done big big ones previously.

    I'm going to miss all that at uni I think, I'll still go and see the school's shows (little sister!) but it won't be the same not seeing my friends in leading roles, running through lines with them and going an entire show without the headset! I wonder if big uni society plays/musicals need willing back stage crews or technical people??!!

    And she's a Filipina Hurrah for us!

    My favorite musicals are:
    Miss Saigon
    They're Playing Our Song
    Les Miserables

    The first two, Lea Salonga was playing the lead role She was awesome... Miss Saigon, especially!

    I've never heard of They're Playing Our Song. What is it like? Similar to Les Mis and Miss Saigon? Anything sung by Lea Salonga is good, so I'm sure I'd love it!
