  1. "Avada....." You are Severus Snape and James Potter just threw your Potions book in the lake.
  2. The play revolves around the courtship of Lily Evans and James Potter, and this particular scene comes in at the beginning of Act III. James had went through great pains to arrange the perfect date, for this was the night that he played on asking Lily to be his wife. The scene takes place in a secluded meadow, magically enchanted with rose petals falling from the sky (James had thought of everything!). At the edge of the meadow lies a stately castle; a great multi-turreted grey stone structure. Inside the castle, house elves are busily preparing a romantic feast (this would be the backdrop for the next scene). Sunlight filters through the trees, casting an almost ethereal glow upon the whole backdrop. It must have worked, for as we all know, she said YES!
  3. Getting one's voice to properly project can be quite tricky, so I would imagine that the Amplifying Charm, Sonorus, could come in quite handy. Literally, it could save thousands of rehearsal hours and stop a potential meltdown or mutiny when the cast is forced to do the scene yet again (for the 00th time) to get it done properly. Likewise, if the scene called for a dramatic whisper, Silencio could be cast momentarily on the audience so that the actor could be properly heard. Sometimes, it really isn't all about the flashy lights and the razzle-dazzle; theatre calls for many practical skills as well. Besides, think of the poor little firstie who couldn't act to save their life. This will give them a very important role in the play...offstage and out of sight. Voila' problem solved! Another potential use of magic on stage could be for movement purposes. Ascendio, for example, is used to lift the caster high in the air. This would be especially useful if the character was required to fly or 'live' above the clouds. No messy wires (which are potential tripping hazards) to bother with; just a flick of the wand and away you go. Alarte Ascendare is the same principal, but this time the caster is lifting a target into the air. I could see these spells working in tandem quite nicely, especially in a fantasy type play where flying is required. I suppose you could just cast fairies in the parts, but fairies are known to be extremely temperamental. Personally, I would stick with the magic.
  4. "Can I keep it, Dad? Please!!!!!!" You are Bellatrix Lestrange and Narcissa wants you to babysit.
  5. "20 points from Gryffindor! Quit wasting time smiling and get to work!" You're Dolores Umbridge and you just spotted Firenze.
  6. Although I am rather shy in person, put me on stage and I am in my element. I've been fortunate enough to perform in many plays during my school years, with perhaps the most memorable being Nimue in a play about Merlin. I love all things Arthurian, so that, in itself, was a very real treat. While I have enjoyed a variety of roles such as Nimue, a demented elf, a self-absorbed fairy princess, a Muggle street waif, and a court jester for the Earl King, among others, I would say that the ones which suited me best were those with a hint of tragedy or angst. I have done comedy, but it is definitely not my forte'. Neither am I suited for the princess/damsel in distress. I feel that I lack a certain wide-eyed innocence to play such roles, but that could be just me. No, I am much better suited to the villain or anti-hero than the one waiting to be rescued. Far better the evil Queen than Snow White, if you will.
  7. Image shows a costume for the character of Ice Queen in a high fantasy play of the same name. As the main character, she is both regal and haughty, and as her name would suggest, quite 'cold' in disposition. I wanted the costume to reflect that. The gown is blue-gray with a dark silver bodice. The crown is made of blue-gray gems, as is the necklace she wears around her neck (a family heirloom). Her shoes are sparkly blue and the scepter she carries has silver tenders with icy blue crystals.
  8. The play would be a romantic tragedy and revolve around the relationship between Lily Evans and James Potter, starting with their time at Hogwarts and ending with their death at the hands of Voldemort. It would also show snippets of their home life, detailing how their relationship affected it. For instance, Lily and Petunia's relationship as sisters would definitely be explored. Perhaps seeing a young James Potter at home could also explain his later attitude in life (Because let's face it, he was a bit of a bully.) I consider this a prequel to the Harry Potter series, and it could even be billed as such.
  9. Fortunately, she had been planning to cancel the gigs anyway.
  10. I would call Professor Snape because he is really good at potions. You are lost in the Forbidden Forest. Who you gonna call?
