The cast list is out — sort of…Mr. D. filled as many roles as he could with the small group of people who tried out for Legally Blonde. But that’s barely half the roles. The good news is, Smalltown High’s principal talked to Cunningham High’s principal who talked to his Drama teacher who talked to her students all while the Smalltown kids were talking to their friends at Cunningham and guess what? It worked. Cunningham is going to take part in Smalltown’s production of Legally Blonde. Pfshew. Not exactly the kind of neat, tidy, well-planned inter-school collaboration you read about, but it gets the job done.
Auditions for Cunningham are next week, and then the show will, hopefully, be fully cast. Mr. D. has already held one rehearsal, with four of the leads, so at least it feels like this show will actually happen, although I suppose we won’t know for sure until after the Cunningham audition. I mean, if only three more people try out, will that be enough?
