If you do not see someone's name next to a character, that character is open and, if you are attending on Saturday, you should grab it and make it yours! Also, if you have a copy of the play, please to bring.

Oh, what the hell. Put me in for Theseus.
4th-Mar-2010 04:32 pm (UTC)
I would have thought Egeus. ;)
4th-Mar-2010 04:41 pm (UTC)
Heh. Tempting as it is to take Sir Barely Appearing In the Play (as well as the father of a teenager), Theseus gets to snark. Very few Shakespeare roles involve snark.
4th-Mar-2010 04:57 pm (UTC)
I just figured, given our Hermia and all. But yes, Theseus's snark is a wonderful thing.

*wants a teleporter*
4th-Mar-2010 03:56 pm (UTC)
Can I borrow it when you're done with it, then?
4th-Mar-2010 05:32 pm (UTC)
Sure, but logistically it'd be a mess. I'd need another teleporter to teleport Teleporter A to you. But while we're wishing for ponies ..
4th-Mar-2010 05:34 pm (UTC)
What if the telporter is a handheld device that can be used to transport whatever you choose within it's range? So you can teleport yourself with the device over to rubian, and then she sends you home and hangs on to the device herself for a while.

This is like that thing with the boat and the fox and the chicken or whatever it is, isn't it?
4th-Mar-2010 05:37 pm (UTC)
Bah, my method is easy!
4th-Mar-2010 05:54 pm (UTC)

Yes. Ponies that can teleport.

You could teleport to me, and then both of us teleport to 'song's house. :D
4th-Mar-2010 09:38 pm (UTC)
Deal. :D

Alas, I am going to have to bail. Something confusing happened with my bank account, and I no longer have the margins for Alice ticket or food, and would be cutting it too close on gas. I don't really want to run out on the Mass Pike somewhere with a negative balance. :-(
4th-Mar-2010 02:17 pm (UTC)
Sad! :( Understandable, though.
4th-Mar-2010 01:47 pm (UTC)
Francis Flute, please. Keep it relatively small.
4th-Mar-2010 03:57 pm (UTC)
Aw, c'mon...if you're gonna go in, go big.

You've got to give me some vicarious thrills!
4th-Mar-2010 06:10 pm (UTC)
Well, it means I also get to play Thisbe, if that's worth anything.
4th-Mar-2010 06:31 pm (UTC)
Wellll....I guess so....

*pouts mightily*
4th-Mar-2010 02:27 pm (UTC)
How late will movies go? When I said I could come, I totally totally forgot I had already booked the entire afternoon, until about 5 or so.
4th-Mar-2010 02:34 pm (UTC)
Way into the night. You're good. :)
4th-Mar-2010 02:39 pm (UTC)
Yay! I shall try to remember to bring LCRW, too.
4th-Mar-2010 04:01 pm (UTC)
Please, please, please take video of this for those of us who can't be there!!

*makes sad puppy-dog eyes*
4th-Mar-2010 04:31 pm (UTC)
Actually. . .I can't promise video but I *could* do an audio recording if all present agreed to it. And then I could post that audio online, subject again to agreement of the participants and any sort of interest.
4th-Mar-2010 04:36 pm (UTC)
I'll take what I can get!! Even if it's just for my own personal amusement. slipjig can vouch for me!

rafaela asked me to put her in for one of the Mechanicals. Your call. (Actually, she's a Wallace Stevens fan, so go for Peter Quince, if he's available.)
