So my friends and I performed Candy Store for a night of shorts at our school!! There are a few lyric changes, but that’s to be expected lmao. I had a lot of fun pulling this together and performing it! (I’m Heather Chandler btw)
Kathryn Beaumont was just ten years old when she was cast as the voice of Alice. Walt Disney was so impressed with Kathryn’s long curly blonde hair, sparkling eyes and acting ability, that he chose her as the model for Alice for the live action reference. (x)
“Donald, you forgot about our date again! You’d better have a good excuse this time!” Happy 65th birthday to Tress MacNeille (born June 20th, 1951) and she is the voice of the Queen of Hearts, Daisy Duck, Chip, Merryweather, and Kanga in the Kingdom Hearts series. #BDayKH
So, initial thoughts on The Orbiting Human Circus.
1) I love the narrator already?? Partially cause he comes across as a great character but also partially because I’m also a huge sucker for that old-timey radio sort of thing.
2) I think it’s great that we already have this cast of characters and they all have their own voices, unlike in Night Vale, Alice and Within the Wires where we got the cast of characters (only kind of in Within the Wires) but only really voiced by one person.
3) The janitor is a great character (I know his name was said but it was only like once and I haven’t yet had a chance to relisten to it yet) and I found myself feeling surprising sympathetic towards him.
4) I was kind of surprised that there wasn’t more about the circus itself but yknow the more I think about it the more I think about it the better I think the tangential focus works.
All in all I thought it was a great start to what will probably be a great series and I can’t wait to see where the story goes.
