Helloo, M' foppish friends!

Moment, Margot...I have some news to dictate...

Helloo, m'friends! (Zounds, you all look well rested!)
You shall be having rehersals, starting this Tuesday, in the St. Lawrence Commons, to start practisin' for that teaser show, what! (Two weeks are what we'll have).
From this practise, forward, attendance will be taken--Zounds, it's come to that, eh what? What on earth did you do to make your directress empose manditories upon you? Sink me!--all cast members must attend each practise, and more than two unexcused absences will be a sad dismissal- Sink me! Disgrace!- from the show. There are rumers that some of you are not pullin' your weight, and that is a sad way to show honor, m' fellows! Bad form, what? Sink me, we do want a good show, yes? It will only be as good as one puts effort into it...remember, the cast is vital to the development of any show--don't think that Cyrus, Natalie and Matt can carry on a show 'bout me! Where did m'trusted League go?
Enough of that, methinks!

In other such news, the scripts are in, and will be distributed for stage direction notes and such. (Use pencil only!)
The cast and crew must continue to sell them advertisments, or we shall be in the hole- as it were- for cost of set, costumes and other such frou-frou. Sink me, I may be the wealthiest man in England, but I've left this show to you!
I have obtained photographs of the cast, and hope to post 'em very soon, indeed- ahem..more to come, more to come, what!
No more t'be said, for now, though! (Zounds, Margot...look at the time! His Highness is waitin' for us...fashionably late as we are!)
Ta-ta!

To the North Country,in the middle of the night- Margot thinks I'm "bizarre"!

To m'dear friends and fans...
Faith, methinks a small holiday...perhaps in the "North Country" (ahem...to do a bit of fencing, what!) would do me (and a few others, I suspect) a great deal of good!
Sink me! What a grand idea! I think I will! Demme, brilliant!

Be prepared, m' League, to practise quite a bit, on your return! Your directress shall resume rehersals, Tuesday next!

(At the moment, she has informed me that, accompanied by Marie, she has visited the famed Chicago production of Wicked. She reports, that although it is understood to be the champion of musical productions- she believes that the one...(sink me...'bout ME!) is quite better. Demne right.

Sell ADs! Sell ADs!

Demme, Armand-fix your cravat!

(ahem) Attention, one and all...ATTENTION!

Sink me! It's official! M' favorite cast shall be performin' the musical...yes- based on moi...on the weekend of March 11-12!
Zounds! You all will have so much to do, what! Look here- you will be performin' a matinee at 3:00 in the afternoon, on Saturday, and ANOTHER demned performance at 8:00 in the evening. (Faith! Your directress is simply a tyrant, she is, eh what!). More to come, more to come! -That's not all! You will also be performin' that Sunday, at a 3:00 matinee!

Pray, do tell one and all about your fund raisin' campaign, m'dears!
For all you fans and visitors, you may post a question to m'blog, here, inquirin' further information! Sink me! If you leave your e-mail, then you will get an e-mail back from me! How excitin', eh what?! (Zounds, I could hardly stand it, I would, if I were you! HA!)

Tally-ho, m' League of merry men! Cheers and all that!

Sink me! They own the Rights!


Zounds! That was wondrous fast, what? M' dear, the directress, has informed me that you, the Cast, have acquired the Rights to m'show! Marvelous! Here-here! Bravo!
Furthermore, it seems that the gentleman who is to play the part of me (lucky sod) has now been awarded with the privilege of carrying the...lorgnette! Sink me! Only the elite of foppish fashion do so, here in England! Gad, the man will be puffed up, he will...with all this finery surroundin' him so, what! Your directress is simply spoilin' you!

Please do check in to m' blog once in a while, what? I might be monstrous busy, but I shall make time for m' friends...Especially if the topic of conversation is 'bout fashion, frou- frou or fabulous foppish theatre feigning! (Demme, I'm good!) More to come, more to come!

Margot bestows bonjours, one and all!

League meetings, boots and such...oh yeah...oh yes!


Cherio!
I've just return-ed from speaking with the directress (yes, yes, m'boots are somethin' wonderous, they are! Thank you for your consern!)...ahem...who has informed me of the plan for gathering funds by the cast and crew of m' favorite educational institute (Sink me! If there aren't a lot of long words in that sentence!).
She mentioned it seemed as if quite a few of the League was missing, and well, "Demme," I said, "I have that new blog, I do. Zounds, if I shouldn't just mention what you were...mentionin'...Sink me! I will! Brilliant! etc."
And there you have it, eh what!
To those who were detained...you must speak with m'dear directress sometime before Thursday eve, as you all must be able to obtain monies for CRAVATS! (Demme, this is IMPORTANT, it is!) over the fall holiday.
Now I've worked myself to a humor, I have. Methinks a glass of that...how do the Irish at that college call it?...ah yes..."medicinal compound" would do me good. Sink me!
Bottems up, eh what?!

-Percy

A bit of news from the Baronet...

Sink me! Rumor has it that me tailors are sell'n bake-d goods! Zounds...too good to be true, eh what? But demme it is, and sink me they are!
Odds fish- the price for them is only one American dollar! Buy more, buy more! The moneys go toward finer cravats- what better excuse could you have than to beutify the world, what?

Other important news, me fine fellows: Your directress is hosting a meeting, tonight; the Rights for the musical...('bout me!) are due this week- methinks she'll post somethin' about the purchase of the...um...said Rights...soon.
Margot looks spiffy in this "lil Bo-Peep" costume, eh what?!
Ta-ta, for now...must go to my boot-makers!

Practice schedule and vocal lessons



Your directress will be available for vocal training, especially to the major characters, MWF anytime between 3:15-5:30, and again from 7:00-9:30. Please contact her in advance to set up a time, as she has no time to speak to me of such things...and I have no time to search for each of you! HA!

A quaint little dinner meeting is scheduled for ALL cast members this Monday, October 10th, in one of the class rooms of St. Lawrence Commons. Zounds! Be sure to arrive as soon as humanly possible! Tuesday will be the last night of practice before your Fall Holiday! (Methinks that I should also take a holiday, what? Maybe to France...do a little fencing? Ha!) Ahem... be prepared to speak about attendance policies and a possible rescheduling for future practices.

Sink me, this message is drab! Ah, one last announcement, then!

Me own dearest Christendom Cast will be performin' a 15 min. "teaser" show on St. Cicilia's Night. (Odds fish! I've but a MONTH to prepare me wardrobe!)
Cheers!

The Scarlet Pimpernel

Sink me! If I didn't go and do it!
To think-me own blog! Brilliant!- you say? HA! Inspired!
Aren't I just demned intellectual, these days? Zounds!- a technologically updated rogue, eh what? ('Tis true, 'tis true!)

Presently, this little forum is for the cast and crew of Christendom College whilest they labor to produce that splended musical based on...me!

Pictures and such will be posted as the production progresses, but all fans of yours truly are welcome to join in the fun, what!
Tally-ho!
