theatre kids

anonymous asked:

You know in junkertown, low tech entertainment probably came back in fashion in a big way. Including public theatre. What I'm saying is I believe canon junkrat was 100% a theatre kid in his down time.

I’m so angry that this is 100% feasible

yeah can i get uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh taz college au

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeee

see i know taako would probably go to a culinary school but also :// i wanna make him a theatre kid sfkfjgs.

LIKE. LISTEN. I JUST WANT. THE TRES HORNY BOYS. to meet in an acting class. it was an easy A for them okay (OR SO THEY THOUGHT, DUNDUNDUN). they get stuck doing a lot of improv and it’s all fun and games at first but, as yall know, acting classes can be hell and it gets rly emotional rly fast. they all cry in front of each other at least once. i’m dying.

DM!griffin is the acting teacher ok shhhhhhhhhhh

ANYWAY, AS I WAS SAYING, i’m imagining this is a community college, taako has a cooking major which tbh that being in this school was a godsend but the classes are very limited T B H. he was originally in a private school but he… didn’t kill 40 people no but SOMEthing happened and he was pretty much kicked out of it and he’s trying to get back on his feet again. this absolutely is not based on what happened to me a few years back, nooo…

MAGUS… should probably be in carpentry huh ._. but i want him to be in school for physical training sjfsfdsg like he keeps going back and forth between gym teacher or physical therapist or just. ATHLETE. he can’t decide!! i think he accidentally finds carpentry through!!! doing a lot of tech and stagecraft and he realizes he’s actually fuckign amazing at building sets and shit so he ends up moving on to building other stuff later on with whats-his-name

MERLE is one of those guys who didn’t finish their education when they were younger, he just kinda finished high school and got married right off the bat and it was kind of a mistake and now that he’s hitting his 60s(?) he wants to make a new start so he’s starting up again!! he’s a liberal arts major and he’s dabbling in a lil of everything, RLY passionate about the religious studies class he’s in. there’s a teeny lil greenhouse on campus and he’s VERY happy about that, also the cool weed grandpa

i’m leaving it at that cuz i don’t wanna do literally everyone but i will say that literally everyone is involved in this one acting class in one way or another. the director is the chairman of the theatre department.. so on and so forth. fuckign hell

pabloescobueg has been rinsing americans but he was a theatre kid all along... imagine me activating my laser eyes and going in for the kill

jk i think you mean you just witnessed the stuff. thank u for confirming theatre kids are a universal constant

The Signs as Things Said in my Drama Class Pt. 2

Aries: “You’re dead. You’re fucking dead. All I want you to do, is die. Just die. Dead peOPLE DON’T LAUGH YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO BE DEAD.”

*Lexi looks down from hanging off the banister of a costume loft* “I honestly have no idea.”

Cancer: “Stage management, more like anger management, am I right?”

“Benjamin, I’m going to take my thumb, and I’m going to shove it up your ass. I’m going to shove it so far up your ass that I will have a thumb war with your small intestine.”

Leo: “How’s directing going?”

“Accidentally killed half my cast yesterday.”

“Alright, so Mercutio is taking a dump, and then will enter stage left…”

Libra: “So, are you two, like, dating?

“Well, I don’t know. Technically? We played lesbians and sort of kept at it or whatever, but it could all just be for shits and giggles…? I don’t know, what do you think?

“We literally had sex last night.”

“Oh, yeah.”

Scorpio: “I FOUND THE BUTCHER KNIFE DILDO!”

Everyone: “Yay!”

Sagittarius: “What if there was, like, a jacket for your legs?”

“Like, pants?”

“No, listen, it would keep your legs warm and covered.”

“So pants.”

“No! It would be on your legs!”

“Pants. You’re describing pants, Eric.”

“…Goddammit.”

Capricorn: *practicing pick-up lines* “Hey girl, are you a theatre arts major? Cuz’ I find you attractive but my parents will never approve of you.”

Aquarius: “Like, have sex, but don’t have sex.”

Pisces: “YOU’LL NEVER TAKE ME ALIVE, YOU NARCS!”

“Lexi, get off the ladder. We’re trying to program lights.”

“Program THIS!”

how to spot a theatre kid

- knows too much about first treasury secretary alexander hamilton, bank robbers bonnie and clyde and the newsboys strike of 1899

- grocery shopping list consists of ‘the cow as white as milk, the cape as red as blood, the hair as yellow as corn, the slipper as pure as gold’

- when introduced to someone new, sings:

 - and i’m jAVERT

 - alexander hamilton, my name is alexander hamilton

 - veronica sawyer. i crave a boon

- laughs at anyone who says disney isn’t realistic because nobody randomly breaks out into song

- favourite rappers are the cast of hamilton and the witch from into the woods

- when walking in the rain, will start singing on my own from les miserables

- panics when the cast list is about to be posted

- blood is 90% throat coat

- constantly losing bobby pins

- has no sense of privacy because have you ever had to do a quick change

Theatre is so amazing actually like

You want a musical about revolting people because they can’t use the bathroom? Got it

A musical with puppets after they get out of college who have upbeat songs about racism, sexualities, and sex? Yep we got it

Maybe one about gay Mormons who love Orlando and Star Wars? You guessed it

Fucking Shrek the musical?? Yeah (and its actually not as shitty as it sounds)

Not two mention a musical that accurately portrays a dysfunctional family due to mental disease?

Rock musical based on presidents lives?

Addams Family and Mathilda the musical? Aight man

Anything you want there’s probably a show about it tbh
