Subject: I've been cast as Major General Stanley in "The Pirates of Penzance"

Written By: Johnny_D on 01/28/07 at 8:35 pm

I've been cast as Major General Stanley in The Friends Of The Performing Arts In Concord's (FOPAC's) March 17, 2007 concert performance of Gilbert and Sullivan's "Pirates of Penzance". 

The performance is a fundraiser to help pay for the extensive stage renovations at FOPAC's 51 Walden Street facility.

This will be my FIRST attempt ever at performing Gilbert and Sullivan!  The show will be performed only once, on Saturday, 3/17/07, at 51 Walden Street in Concord (The Concord Players' theater).  The show is a collaboration of The Concord Orchestra, The Concord Band, and The Concord Players.  I believe we will have the equivalent of a full symphony orchestra.  Principal characters and soloists, yours truly among them, will be in costume.

Sweet! Life imitating art.

I dare you, when the big scene arrives, to bust out a parody. Make that a double-dog dare.

Thanks, Red Ant!  Gilbert and Sullivan is in the public domain, so I suspect there might be a recording or two floating around afterwards, heh heh heh ...  ;)

Thanks, Spaff!

Perhaps I might take you up on a modified version of your dare by busting out in a parody AT THE CAST PARTY !!   ;D

There are so many EXCELLENT parodies of The Major General's Song posted on AmIRight that I might print some and bring 'em along to the cast party ... giving the original parody author(s) full credit, of course!   ;D

Thanks, Stu!  Oh-oh ... feel ... a ... mini-parody coming on ... must ... resist ... must ... resist ... ARRRRGGGHHH

I sniff a scary model-maker's model airplane-making-glue
I love the way the fume an' spray inspire me to write like Stu
Although it stings your sinuses and nose and is not good for you
It's so much fun I want to do it 'til my brain is Prussian Blue

He says it's so much fun he'll do it til his brain is Prussian Blue
though I might claim that JD's brain does not need more things rushin' through
the things already rushin' leave me gushin' (sometimes blushin' too)

Awesome! I'd like to add to Spaff's dare -- don't just bust out into parody, but don't stop until you've sung every Major-General parody on AmIRight!

And congratulations also on your role in the Louis Brandeis special - when will it air?

Thanks, Rex!  The Brandeis documentary will air on PBS in the spring --- probably April and/or May --- of 2007.
