so my school is putting on a production of Rent and the director came up to me and told me he would love it if I auditioned. it does intrigue me, but the thing is, the only thing i know of rent is the song Seasons of Love, which I love and is on my iPod. i have wikipedia'd some stuff and the character Roger Davis interests me seeing as hes a guitar player and such, but seeing as im a freshman and dont know if I have it in me to take on the lead role (plus i dont think i can sing that great). but on wikipedia it said that Rent is like the Hair of the 90's, and i loved hair

so pit, what do you think i should do?

Do it. If you get the lead, you do, if you don't you don't. If you're willing to give the time and effort, you will do fine.

well to get in you have to have aids and be gay......... do you fit that? rent is acutally pretty hard to do cause you need to be a gay and have to go through the turmoil of having aids which in my eyes is pretty fuken hard to act.

I'd say go for it. even if some people might make fun of you for it (like this ass above me) itll probably be fun. hope u get the part if u tryout.

Unless by "cum blood" you mean "have white hair on my balls".
In which case,
yes, I do cum blood.

You are teh gay how is the aidz? lulz

If you're in a war, instead of throwing a hand grenade at the enemy, throw one of those small pumpkins. Maybe it'll make everyone think how stupid war is, and while they are thinking, you can throw a real grenade at them.

Do it, and if you don't make it, then you can help the crew build the set for it.

Crew is hella fun.

There is really no reason not to, since the theatre people don't usually make fun of you if you don't make the cut anyway.

Is it at all possible one of the things that the show is about AIDS?


Nah. What was I thinkin...


Edit: On topic, definitely try out. I do drama at my school and its loads of fun. Plus Rent is like my favourite musical. I'd try out if I were you.

You should do it..I'm just saying that because I love RENT..
Her friends are gazing on her,
And on her gaudy bier,
And weep!-oh! to dishonor
Dead beauty with a tear!
They loved her for her wealth-
And they hated her for her pride-
But she grew in feeble health,
And they love her-that she died.

Do it. Putting on a production of a musical or play is one of the most fun experiences ever. Even though it seems like a lot of work and really annoying/grueling sometimes, when its over you'll miss it like crazy.
