GUESS WHAT?

             Yet Another Period Drama Blog


I take three online classes with Veritas Press Scholars Academy for supplemental purposes. This year I am taking Art, Composition 1 and Omnibus 1 secondary.  Today during my early Comp class my amazing teacher used a quote from Oliver! (The novel of course, but still Oliver) This made me have "Where is Love" and "Food, glorious Food" stuck in my head until finally i jammed out to Orla Fallon's Distant Shore....ohhhhh Catchy songs!
The qoute that cause all this was i believe, i have to do it from memory 'cause the archive is not up yet! :] "The Artful Dodger strolled through the market as Oliver walked over to the stall" 0.o that's close, if not correct!
:)
                                          ;)

Musical Week! :Tag


1. What musical did you pick to "spotlight" this week and why?
     I could not decide between Oliver! And Mary Poppins! So I am most afraid I will have to do both! (we will just stick with Oliver for this post because he is adorable!)
2. How did you discover the musical you picked (hereinafter referred to as "your musical")?
             Late night, Netflix, Mother with the remote! 
3. If you had to pick three favourite songs from your musical, which ones would they be?
              “Where Is Love?” “Consider Yourself!”” Who will buy!”
4. What's your least favourite song from your musical?
                “As long As He Needs me…” It is way too long! Though it shows devotion... which is important to her part of the story.

5. Who are your favourite characters (choose up to three)?
                Well Oliver of course! And I like Dodger, and Fagin is really cool and spooky!
6. Which versions of your musical have you seen/listened to, and which is your favourite?
                1968! :D the bestest one!
7. Is this your favourite musical of all time?  If not, what is?
                No not my most favourite. I love the Scarlet Pimpernel and Les MIs best!
8. Which cast album/musical soundtrack in your collection do you listen to the most?
               Well whatever comes on Pandora. :D
9. What is your favourite costume from your musical?
                oh....I suppose I may have to choose one from Mary Poppins...I never really liked the costumes from Oliver. but this is my favourite Mary Poppins dress.




10. If you could change anything about your musical, what would you change?
                Shani Wallis: she played Nancy...I think she could be played by someone better! :D
11. Which role(s) would you most like to play in any musical, if you had the opportunity to do so on stage?
              Oh…gee Cosette from Les Mis, and I would love to be Marguerite from TSP, and Christine but I am WAY too big for any of those…I would probably end up being a Thenardier. :[
I pity this particular Cosette...she had to sing with Nick Jonas XP bleh.
12. If you could choose one performer to play any part in your musical, who would you choose and which part would you have them play?
Hmmmmm… I have a friend named Foster. He would have to be Dodger. Absolutely.
        13.  Do you consider yourself a musical theatre fan in general or do you just like a few musicals?
           Fan! All the way….I love how feelings just go into songs so well!

        14.  Are you tired of the word "musical" yet?
            Tired? Nah, say it ten more times then maybe. :D
             15.  Turn your music playing device on shuffle (or utilize Pandora if you don't have one) and tell us the names of the first three show tunes that come up-- no cheating!  How do these rank on your favourites/most-listened-to list?
           “Concerning Hobbits” Do You Hear The People Sing” 
                                       “When I Look At You”


                 This has been fun! :D Thanks for hosting musical week

I think I am obsessing.

 




One may be able to tell by my former posts that I (meaning me) am a huge fan of Jane Austen, Baroness Orczy, J.R.R. Tolkien, and P.G. Wodehouse.
It is clear to me that my life is being overrun! HELP SOMEBODY! I AM TURNING INTO A PERIOD DRAMA GEEK! AND (not to quote Mcdonald's or anything) I'M LOVIN' IT! 
Obsessed is the word. :D

 



hehehe! :D
thanks for stopping by!
MUSICAL WEEK IS APPROACHING! 
OLIVER!
