    Top 5 Party Scenes in Musical Theatre with Julie Ryan

    Top 5 Party Scenes in Musical Theatre with Julie Ryan

    IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!! Hooray.
    The great thing about my birthday is that I get to share it with my twin sister, Julie.
    We have thrown some great birthday parties over the years. …And since it was Julie that first encouraged me to join The Regals Musical Society back in 1996 – I thought we should discuss the Top 5 Party Scenes in Musical Theatre.
    I have to say it’s a tough category to narrow down to just 5 – but between the two of us, I’m sure we’ll manage.
    Happy birthday, Julie!! I hope it’s Fantastic Fantastix…
    Julie’s Top 5
    Til Death Do Us Party – Tickets Please Sadie Hawkin’s Day – Lil Abner Embassy Ball/Ascot – My Fair Lady Gym Scene – West Side Story Blow Gabriel Blow – Anything Goes Paul’s Top 5
    Rhythm of Life – Sweet Charity Gym Scene – West Side Story Big Fun – Heathers Dancing Through Life – Wicked High School Prom Scene – Carrie Honourable Mentions
    Dancing Through Life – Wicked Masquerade – Phantom of the Opera Be Our Guest – Beauty & The Beast High School Dance – Bare Clam Bake – Carousel (Dishonourable Mention)  
    FANTASTIX BITS IN THE INTERVIEW
    What did Paul and Julie dress up as for their Pairs Party? How many children were in Cats Julie? Who doesn’t want a pancake at 11pm after a performance!?! Party scenes = ensemble numbers, there’s no better way to party! If you’re gonna party you’ve got to DANCE! In which show are you tired before you even dance? Which show will Julie continue to rally to have done again? Calling all football teams! The 2004 schlock horror musical you need to know about #spoileralert Singing in the wings - you’re still part of the party! A great party for all the wrong reasons How many top 5 matches will the twins have? How did they leave out all the band scenes in Rock of Ages? Invite Julie to a party – she loves to cook! Would you like to hear a Julie and Julie duet? Visit our Facebook Page or Group and keep the party going, we know our top 5 only scratched the surface and we’d love to hear from you! Consider it a birthday gift and join the conversation. SHOW NOTES

    Top 5 Australian Cast Recordings with Blake Erickson

    Top 5 Australian Cast Recordings with Blake Erickson

    I just got back from the US after a holiday with the family. I was going through my emails and I saw one that was entitled ‘Love the Podcast’. It was from Blake Erickson. It’s always nice to get positive feedback for the things that you’re doing and there was only one thing to do upon receiving this email – which was to get Blake on the show!
    The great thing about Blake is that he brings a wonderful mix of community theatre experience and professional theatre experience. It gave us the chance to discuss the Top 5 Australian Cast Recordings as well as community theatre, professional theatre and theatre in Australia.
    About Blake…
    Blake has worked throughout Australia, Asia, Britain, and the United States as a writer, actor, and singer. He studied drama and musical theatre at the University of Sydney & The Actor’s Connection New York. In early 2019 Blake co-wrote the new Australian musical The Dismissal, which premiered at the Seymour Centre. Prior to this he appeared in the international tour of Cameron Mackintosh's Les Misérables. For his performance in the title role of the one-man show Pearls Before Swine: An Evening With Orson Welles (Neil Gooding Prod.), Blake won Best Actor at the inaugural Sydney Fringe Festival Awards. Other credits include: CRY-BABY, High Fidelity, Melba, and his acclaimed cabaret Hold Me Closer Logies Dancer (all at Sydney’s Hayes Theatre); Mamma Mia!, the Australia & New Zealand tour of Madiba, Of Thee I Sing at the Sydney Opera House, Grey Gardens, and Sondheim on Sondheim for Squabbalogic.
    Blake’s Top 5
    Jesus Christ Superstar (1992) Muriel’s Wedding (2019) Man of La Mancha (2015 – Squabbalogic) Smoke and Mirrors (2010) Pirates of Penzance (1995) Honourable Mentions
    Miracle City (The Hayes) Priscilla Queen of the Dessert FANTASTIX BITS IN THE INTERVIEW
    The apprenticeship nature of community theatre Are professional performers embarrassed by their community theatre roots? Exactly how much can you learn from community theatre? Does going pro take the fun out of theatre? Do you know your ‘Why?’ Mr Erickson is very eloquent. The meaning of rubric or zeitgeist can be found in our show notes? How Aussie casts and crew put their own unique spin on musical recordings Show of hands. Who else can trace back their love of G&S to the 1995 Aussie recording of Pirates? After the success of the Greatest Showman, will we see the return of Smoke and Mirrors? Can we smell a 10-year rerun for 2020? We know that symmetry will appeal to Blake! You can still buy a copy of #3! See the show notes below All those Aussie firsts rockets a ‘terrible’ musical into the runners up place #1 was always going to be #1 – it went into the Top 40 Charts Some tongue in cheek basic geography for our American listeners Daddy versus Papa Bear – get it right, Paul! Border control alert for the first Shrek rehearsal A gentle reminder that Warlow’s career was made on Australian stages The cheers and boos of a memorial service AND a musical! Stand by for a fast five question change from comfort food to a death row meal! SHOW NOTES
    Man of La Mancha 
    Shrek the Musical 
    Rubric & Zeitgeist 
    The Dismissal

    Top 5 Musical Theatre Divas with Virginia Natoli

    Top 5 Musical Theatre Divas with Virginia Natoli

    I am surprised that this episode’s guest even allowed me to be part of this podcast, she demanded her own dressing room and to have grapes peeled and fed to her on the hour.  Today I am speaking about and to a Musical Theatre Diva!
    My special guest today is currently playing Maria Callas in D2 Production's Masterclass so before she gets me kicked out of the studio let's hear from the wonderful Virginia Natoli
    Virginia’s Top 5 
    Eva Peron – Evita Norma Desmond – Sunset Boulevarde Mrs Lovett – Sweeney Todd Mamma Rose – Gypsy Reno Sweeny – Anything Goes Maria Callas – Masterclass Paul’s Top 5
    Eva Peron – Evita Mamma Rose – Gypsy Dolly Levi – Hello Dolly! Fanny Bryce – Funny Girl Annie – Annie Get Your Gun FANTASTIX BITS IN THE INTERVIEW
    Who does Virginia base her entire Top 5 on? In true diva fashion how many roles in Virginia's top 5? Insights into Dementia Australia fundraising “We need more women for our show” Do belty songs and Diva roles go hand in hand Which manipulator sneaks onto the list Did Diva #2 have a touch of dementia? More belting per minute than any other show For which role did Virginia live like a hermit Who is the Diva in disguise, and what is the disguise? Is this a Michele Lansdown fan club meeting How many Dolly’s are too many to have on stage at one time? What homework does Virginia have to take home after the show? The Opera Diva of ALL Divas in a show where she doesn’t sing The Diva’s trio - pizza, chocolate and wine Could you really sing a duet with Patti LuPone? Why does Virginia need to build a bridge? SHOW NOTES
