Be Over the top and Larger than life…

Melodrama is a bit like a pantomime without the songs – the audience is encouraged to interact with the performance – boo/hiss the villain (soft missiles may be available), cheer the hero and heroine and gasp (loudly) at the incredible turn the plot has taken and what that may imply for the characters. It is like live soap opera with damsels in distress, arch villains and dashing heroes that saves the day. Watch out for actors taking curtain calls after there demise.

Auditions are now complete and what a lot of fun it was. The actors enjoyed reading the small plays in which some of the most grotesque events played itself out. It was funny, very funny. This is going to be very entertaining, something a little different for a change.
