Broadway Shows As Theatre Kids

Hamilton: really talented, woke af, want to hate them but can’t and never will

Lion King: senior, guaranteed a lead every time, universally adored

Matilda: The kid your director brings up from the middle school to play the child parts

Finding Neverland: says they like theatre, but really they only know disney, talks a lot about how messed up the original disney stories are

Something Rotten: actually really good, but always talks about how bad they did

Jersey Boys: the guy who wants to”give theatre a try”, the whole football team comes to see the show bc of him, the soccer team might show up too

Waitress: show mom, always has food, will fight anyone who was mean to her kids

School of Rock: watches the movie versions of the show the director picked and thinks that’s what the show is gonna be, doesn’t pay attention in rehearsal

Fun Home: gets all the female leads and all the guys want her, hella gay, her girlfriend is always at rehearsal

Beautiful: writes their own songs and posts them on youtube, check her out on bandcamp!

Les Miserables: shy kid with the amazing vibrato that no one expects (secretly a rebel)

An American in Paris: took dance since age of 3, not a huge fan of theatre, takes any chance to dance

Fiddler on The Roof: total dad, constant dad jokes, will crush you with a hug

Wicked: gets cast for her voice but can NOT act for the life of her

Here's the beautiful thing about theatre:

It’s always changing. Shows come and go and, as much as that hurts sometimes (Tuck I’m looking at you), it’s also a good thing. Because when one show closes, another opens. You have your staples that will be (or seem to be) there forever, like Phantom and Wicked, and you have those shows that maybe their run isn’t as long as others, but they can impact people in major ways like Newsies and Next to Normal. You have the shows whose legacies live on like Les Mis and you have the shows whose legacy is only beginning, such as Dear Evan Hansen. Theatre is ever expanding and different and growing and I don’t know I’m just having a lot of theatre feels today.

For A While I Was A Cynic About My Childhood But Screw It:

High School Musical was awesome.

“That’s So Raven” was amazing.

I still watch the first three Halloweentown movies.

“The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” was cool.

Nothing will ever replace “Kim Possible” in my heart.

“Phil of the Future” doesn’t get enough credit.

I still remember Now You See It, Get a Clue!, Phantom of the Megaplex & The Scream Team. (I can’t really find a GIF for that)

I would still watch a third season of “American Dragon Jake Long”.

I wish “House of Mouse” was still on the air.

Twitches was awesome.

I never really got into “Lizzie McGuire” & “Even Stevens”…but I wish I had.

There are still songs by Hannah Montana in my iTunes library.

I’m still watch “Phineas and Ferb” with a passion.

What can I say? I was a Disney Channel kid.

why doesn’t marinette ever play rizzo in grease fics

So I know in ladybug !grease aus!, or rather ‘the school puts on a play’ scenarios, Marinette is usually cast as Sandy or makes the costumes, or both. Which is fine, though a lot to take on. However. Sandy definitely isn’t the one wearing a red and black polka dot dress??? 

 I just think there’s hilarity potential in Marinette being Rizzo. For one thing, no one would expect it. The casting call gets announced for Grease during the end of class and Alya excitedly nudges Marinette, saying she should go for the role of Sandy to impress a certain blonde model. The idea would be tempting to Marinette, certainly, but I think she’d be more interested in making the costumes, and doing that and trying out for the lead role might be too much. So she declines Alya’s suggestion because she’d rather focus on costuming, and with a laugh, says if there was any role she’d go for, it would likely be Rizzo.

 And Alya just stops dead and stares at her friend. And asks why.

Not understanding Alya’s shift in behavior, Marinette tries to explain that she just appreciates the character’s styling more, also it would be a lot less of a role to take on if she were to juggle costuming too. 

At this point Alya bursts out laughing, not cruelly obviously, but the idea of the cutest girl in class, baring Rose of course, playing the brash, sultry Rizzo was hilarious. And Alya tells her this. 

Now Marinette is feeling just slightly offended, which Alya sees plainly on her face. And so I see the rest of the exchange going something like this;

Alya: I don’t mean it as a bad thing! Rizzo’s character can just be pretty abrasive and in your face - 

Marinette: -I can get in people’s faces!

Alya: *Laughing again* Yeah, when someone else is being mean, you’re all about truth and justice. Newsflash girl! Rizzo’s the mean one through a lot of it. You don’t have a mean bone in your body.

Marinette: *At this point she really begs to differ, but doesn’t want to get into how she has quite the mean jealous streak that still ashamed her*. It’s just acting. How hard can it be to pretend to be a jerk?

Alya: Easier for some people. Sorry Marinette! You’re just too… nice and cutesy.

Marinette: *Mumbling* I can do more than ‘nice and cutesy.’ Besides, you think I should be Sandy! She has to wear that leather outfit at the end and sings a song that’s anything but cute. 

Alya: *Looking playful* True. Maybe Frenchie would be a better fit for you? She’s super nice!

Marinette: Urgh. You’re just poking fun now.

Alya: *Chuckling* A little. I still think it’s ambitious.

Marinette: It’s not like I said I was going to do it. She would just be my top pick. 

Meanwhile Nino and Adrien finishes packing up their schoolbags and turns around, clearly interested in the commotion going on behind them.

Nino: Do I hear an actual argument going on between the ladies? What’s going on?

Alya *Chuckles and ignores Marinette’s glare* Hardly an argument. Marinette think’s she can be Rizzo!

Marinette: I don’t want to actually be in the play at all-

Nino: Rizzo? Ain’t she like… the sexy one?

Alya: Yes! And jerky. It would be weird, right?? She’s too cute!

Marinette: I’m right here. And no, it wouldn’t be weird! 

At this point Nino and Alya are stifling chuckles, and even Adrien looks to be cracking a smile.

Adrien: I don’t know, guys, She’s talented enough, she could pull it off.

Marinette blushes heavily at the compliment, naturally. She was absolutely gonna die-

Adrien: Although… Alya might have a point. 

Marinette: …what.

Adrien: *Looking sheepish* Well, you’re the sweetest person I know. It’s a little hard to imagine. 

Marinette: …what.

Marinette.exe has stopped working.

And Marinette feels really conflicted at this point. Although she’s blushing like mad and her heart is soaring through the heavens (he thought she was sweet!), she really, really doesn’t like when others think she can’t do something. It was really… really… annoying!

She could totally be more than sweet as pie! She was Ladybug, for crying out loud!

Nino and Alya, meanwhile. just send each other a knowing look.

Nino: Dude, even when you’re not trying to be, you’re super smooth. 

Adrien: What do you mean? 

Alya: Seriously? I think you just broke my best frie-

Marinette: I’m doing it!

All three of her friends just look at her, surprised. 

To emphasize the point, Marinette stomps up to the front of the class to grab a flyer advertising the musical’s casting call. 

Marinette: I’m trying out to be Rizzo. And I’m gonna get the part. 

And of course she does.

_______

No but like I can imagine it clearly. She would have to channel all of her Ladybug flirtiness, and maybe even a bit of Chloe, to really get that sultry, abrasive attitude down, but when she performs a part of ‘Look at me I’m Sandra Dee’, it’s a shock to almost everyone watching, and a little familiar to Adrien, thought he couldn’t tell anyone why. 

This whole post was inspired by me just really thinking it should be a no brainer that she’d play the character wearing the polka dot dress. Yep.

Name: Rye
Age: 16
Country: USA

Hi! My name is Rye. It’s a dumb nickname, I know. I’m looking for a penpal because I love to make new friends and to talk about anything and everything. I love American history, and history in general, biology, reading and music! I mostly listen to the stereotypical teenage pop bands, but I’ll listen to anything and I love to find new music. I’m a junior in high school and a Libra. I’m also really into conspiracy theories and dumb shit like that. I’m involved in the LGBT community and like to think of myself as open-minded.

Preferences: I would prefer email, and someone who is relatively close to my age, although I really don’t mind. As long as you’re not a homophobe, racist, bigot, etc. etc. we’ll be fine!!
