Godspell [25 Mar 2007|05:00pm]

[ mood | impressed ]

I just wanted to congratulate, Christian, Anthony, Alyson, Melissa and the rest of the Godspell cast for a fantastic production.  I attended last night's performance and was very impressed.  This was a production that went through a great deal of problems and you guys pulled it off with grace and style.  You have much to be proud of.  Of course, this is what happens all the time at Cardinal Spellman, its students always rise to the occasion.

Suggestion [27 Jul 2006|01:02pm]

[ mood | artistic ]

First, let me just say once again, Aida was the best production I have ever seen at Cardinal Spellman.

Now, let me also make one simple suggestion for the next performance.  (If anyone here is listening...)

[ mood | awake ]

Hello hello, this is your stage crew mod giving you the info on stage crew.

If you were there at the meeting today (Morg doesn't count since I put her name down), you know the drill. Tomorrow or some time this week you will either see, or not see, your name on the auditorium door. If your name is on it - congrats! If not, well, become an usher.

If you are me, Ryan, Kelly, Alex, or John, please be at school on Saturday at 12PM...11:55 just to not get on his bad side. EAT BEFORE YOU COME IN!! We're doing inventory.

For anyone else who gets in, please keep in mind that there MAY be a meeting on TUESDAY, even though that's not for sure yet. Thanks.

Stage Crew Announcement [18 Oct 2005|08:29pm]

[ mood | cheerful ]

Hey stage crewers, I have an announcement from Mr.Philp himself. He told me this personally and unofficially so don't come after me with hammers and drills if dates change.

Next week there is a meeting, THIS IS PROBABLY WHERE HE WILL PICK THE NEW MEMBERS OF STAGE CREW! Remember, Mr.Philp is NOT Marc so please don't get your hopes too high, he may not pick you regardless of your time there (even though he totally should, and hopefully he will).

For those who get into stage crew -

THE DAY AFTER HALLOWEEN - TUESDAY - NOVEMBER 1st - ALL SAINTS DAY - Is the first stage crew meeting. We'll be clearing out the mess that built up over the past two years that Marc was in control downstairs and upstairs. Please dress with crappy clothes, bring food/snacks just in case, and possibly work gloves. Expect to get sweaty.

Your loving co-mod,

Hello Again [06 Oct 2005|05:42pm]
[ mood | awake ]

Hello and welcome to another year of the Cardinal's Players, my name is Steph, and I'll [hopefully] be your play guide.

Yes, as you have read, Aida is the musical Spellman is doing for 05-06, directed by Mr. Philp.

Spellman thinks its on broadway.

Just kidding. This play is a personal favorite of mine, so I'll fill you in on anything you need to know

There's alot, so most of it will be under a cut.

Anyone is welcome to try out, don't believe all the hype that's been spread around in school.

Things to help you [Major Characters are in bold, Supporting Characters are Italicized]:
Character Breakdown with vocal breakdownCollapse )

Okay... now that you know the Characters, let's hear the story!
Basic Plot/SynopsisCollapse )

Now that you now know the story, please pay attention to the important dates!

Oct. 18 & 19: Dance audition and Dance callbacks [respectively] Everyone must come appropriately dressed to auditions.
Under no circumstances will anyone be allowed to audition in their uniform
[examples of appropriate clothing: gym clothes, sweatpants, t-shirts, sneakers, dance shoes [not required]]
Oct. 20 & 21: Vocal audition and Vocal callbacks [respectively]
Everyone must come prepared to sing a song from the musical.
Ladies MUST sing either an Amneris or Aida song.
Men MUST sing either a Radames, Mereb or Zoser song.
You will not be required to sing the whole song, just 16 measures [about 30 seconds, maybe less. I usually say its a stanza.]

List of Applicable Songs to singCollapse )
Full List of Songs: In order sungCollapse )

Wow..thats a lot of information, I'll give you a while to take that all in.


Lyrics to the songs in the show can be found here: http://www.stlyrics.com/a/aida.htm

The CD is $13 on Amazon, I tried B&N at Bay Plaza and FYE in the Bronx, they don't have it, so your best bet is Sam Goody in Mt. Vernon or the Virgin Megastores in Union Square or Times Square <=[the largest music store in the world...seriously, its huge.]

There are two versions of the soundtrack: The 2000 Original Broadway Cast Recording includes all twenty-one musical numbers from the Broadway incarnation of the show. The 1999 Concept Album features Elton John performing his own music along with pop stars Sting, Tina Turner, Angelique Kidjo, Spice Girls, Janet Jackson, Boyz II Men, Shania Twain, Lenny Kravitz, James Taylor, Lulu, Kelly Price, and Dru Hill. Additionaly, two tracks, "A Step Too Far" and "Elaborate Lives", feature the voices of Heather Headley and Sherie Rene Scott.


As always, I wish everyone good luck, and I hope you'll make every effort to join!

Thank you guys!


P.S - I'm not in charge of Crew, Ashley red_teardrops is... so.. no questions about crew plz, kthx.

The new show [01 Oct 2005|11:05pm]

[ mood | busy ]

Cardinals Players presents - Aida. (I think it's time we change the layout >_>)

Remember guys, Mr.Philp is our NEW DIRECTOR, he is much more strict and much meaner than Marc EVER was. Accept it. There's no more bunking off during stage crew hours, no more face paint, it's gonna be work work work until we get things done got it?

We have a new higher manager, Mr....Ok I forgot his name alright? You'll see him eventually, he was in stage crew when HE was in Spellman, so he should know what goes on.

Another update Crew - Nicole is no longer here. That means me and Morgan are taking her place. That may or may not be important depending on how stage crew is next year, but don't be surprised if one of us is yelling at you...it'd probably be me cause Morgan is so quiet -_-

Rob is no longer here either. Everyone who knew him knows that he's possibly the nicest guy on earth but he's not here anymore to be the voice of sanity when things get hectic. Be prepared!

This year we're having a small stage crew, 10 - 15 members at most! And mostly boys, I'm sorry ladies. Keep in shape and eat right if you plan to be on stage crew please!

And finally - By the end of October or November Mr.Philp will have an announcement for us. Keep your ears and eyes open, if you don't hear the announcment and it's not on this community then nothing is happening, I'll update once he calls for us.

Your loving co-moderator and stage crew psycho,

Is every story a love story?

I guess I should update this too [09 Jan 2005|10:34am]

[ mood | in love ]

Well guys all of you know that the booster money for stage crew has been postponed until next week - and I mean it GET IT IN! I know I'm not one to talk but we all know how Marc gets when he's frizzy. So just get the 150 in and call it a day.

Now, other than that, we have to keep working on the sets. We already have the balcony and the bedroom but more work has to be done cause well we're all lazy. It's fun to simply fuck around all day and flirt with everyone but we REALLY NEED TO WORK X_X

Annnnd lets see, remember that now I have ILEAD and won't be in until late every week or every other week but I'll be there in spirit! Don't let me down.

I guess that's all for now...seeya.

The first meeting [21 Nov 2004|11:32pm]

[ mood | aggravated ]

Ok guys if you didn't show up to the first stage crew meeting....You had BETTER show up the next time unless you talk to Marc yourself.

This year if you're late or absent three times or more without a good reason you're out. You HAVE to talk to him if you have to leave early or whatnot, I did and I'm off the hook...it's easy. That's if you can get his attention.

Remember, meetings are from 11:00AM to 6:00PM and the latest we'll stay past six is maybe 8:00. I don't know where the rumor that we stay till 2:00AM came from, that's ridiculous.

Also we're going to be split up into rotations so everyone who was in stage crew before don't get too used to how it used to be.

I guess that's all for now...seeya!

First Stage Crew Meeting [13 Nov 2004|10:45am]

[ mood | groggy ]

Ok the first stage crew meeting is NEXT SATURDAY, Nov. 20th, if you're one of the lucky few who are in stage crew, show up on time. The time? I believe it's around 10:30 but I'm not 100% sure so I will DEFINITLY ask Nicole on Monday.

If you didn't get in, then don't feel too bad. Stage crew is a VERY tough spot to get unless you're an artistic freshman boy and besides now you won't get a complex by being screamed at constantly. Pissed because they didn't accept you because you're a girl/junior or senior/non artistic? Don't worry about it, it may not be fair, but Marc was warning us that there had to be more boys for the lifting.

I hope I'm not on anything like props -_-

And a little well known secret - lots of the newbies drop out the first few weeks ^_~

*screams* STAGE CREW!!!!! [10 Nov 2004|07:04pm]

[ mood | accomplished ]

Like I said before (since I'm the all seeing oracle...haha) there is a STAGE CREW meeting this friday at 3:30 after school! Be there, or be -

eaten cause marc will fucking eat you if you don't go.

I don't want to hear any of this bullshit of having better things to do, the fact is, if you can't make it to one meeting because you'd rather get drunk with your friends then you shouldn't be in stage crew, it's a HUGE responsibility just like it is for the Cast. You're gonna have to eat right (ok not that strict but still) possibly work out when we meet, and be prepared to spend A LOT of time on saturdays there.

However it IS a lot of fun sooooo it's well worth it.

So yea show up on friday.
