Okay, I'm posting this here because I'm excited about this, AND I figure everyone here is mature enough not to snigger like 13 year olds (except for maybe Shadow.  :mrgreen:  ;))





Last night I auditioned for The Vagina Monologues, and guess what???


I GOT IN!!!  I'm in the play!  HUZZAH!  I'm very excited about this!  I saw the show last year when my college put it on, and since then I thought "This is so awesome, I HAVE to be a part of this!"  And now I am a part of it!  First rehersal is on Saturday.  YAY!  The show runs March 9, 10, and 11th, right before spring break.  :)

PS: In case you didn't understand the above, it is from a German commedian quoting from a book in which women were asked to write down what they thought their vagina would say if it had the capacity for speech.

That is what the Vagina Monologues promotes:  It's violence awareness, basically.

The show also promotes the idea of women as sexual, sensual, AWESOME beings.  Becasue we are, dammit!  And in many countries, if a woman is remotely sexual in any way, the worst is automatically assumed about her.  (except maybe in Europe, egads, I saw so many women wandering around who were comfortable with their bodies, and so many men appreciating all those women!)

Despite certain opinions, there is nothing pornographic about the show or the audition process.  The only near pornographic thing I had to do was two different types of orgasm moans. ;)

And Tex, in the book, The Vagina Monologues (it was a book first) women were asked questions like that.  When I was filling out my audition forms I had to say what it would wear if it were a person.  I said "red leather!"  In the group audition we had to go around and say what an (insert emotion here) vagina might sound like.  Some of the emotions named were: Bored, apathetic, happy, shy, horny, sad, angry, impatient...etc...The responses were great. :D

Oh, it is a theatre version of "When Harry met Sally"?

Hm, seems that this play isn't my cup of tea.
Luckily I passed it by when I was last in London.

Which female celebrity was in that play a few years ago? Wasn't it Jerry Hall?

You really won't know unless you go see it.  Some of the monologues are incredibly funny, some are insightful, and some are very sad.  I'm doing one of the ones about violence, so it's one of the sad ones.  Regardless, don't assume it's not your thing.  You might be suprised.  :P

Well, I actually don't like theatre anyway. Apart from Shakespeare (in the new London theatre) I doubt that I would enjoy watching any play. (Having seen a school theatre version of some caimed to be important play about the development of the atom bomb made sure of that.)

So, I'll definitely won't come into contact with these monologues.

Nevertheless, congrats and have fun playing your part!

Greetz,

Tex

Mmm.  I love theater.  Though I prefer musical theater.  

Once I get my monologue, I might post it here. :)

Oh c'mon Angel... Me . Being immature about this ?
You'd be surprised girl...
 :o

Could you elaborate what your part will be excactly in that play ?
I thought a monologue was done by one single person ?
This play was a huge success over here as well but only one woman did the whole play.

 We even had 'the penis monologues here' !! :wink:
And no ! I was not invited to participate !
Thank God for the females in the audience ... :wink:
