Title: Percy Jackson musical?
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 11, 2014, 02:26:54 PM
So apparently, Percy Jackson is going to be a musical. I don't really know what to think of this, but if I can find the link to the auditions ad I will post it.

Yay or nay to this?

Edit; found the link!

Uh...well. .-. That is rather strange, but I guess it could work. If it was done well.

Edit: After some Googling: They had better not base this on the movie. -_-
Edit of the edit: Nope :)

I'm still having issues trying to see how they can make it a musical

I dunno. I'd want to see it, for sure...I'm just not sure how it could work. Percy - in fact fact all of the characters; they don't really seem like the type to burst into song.
But hey. Buffy worked as a musical, anything's possible.

Why is Annabeth not on the character list?

I SO wish I could do this, though. I want to. So badly. Just. Ugh.

Buffy was a musical? e-e

I was wondering that, too, but I'd imagine it's because they already cast her or something. A lot of characters aren't on there. If she was I'd so try xD except I have no chance of getting to New York to even attempt

Yes, there was a musical episode of Buffy called Once More With Feeling. And it was absolutely amazing, despite what one might expect.

I definitely couldn't do this.I can sorta sing and can sorta act, but not really. Plus there's no way I could conceivably go to New York to even try. Maybe once this comes out I could talk my friends into putting on a mini version with me... *goes of into fantasy land*

Annabeth's not on the character list? *looks at the list* What!?
And the same actor for Luke is also Gabe...?
And can be eighteen?
That cast list seems a bit off.

They want someone 18+ to play Percy ::)
The list is a mess, honestly. But I'm sure they had to try to compile characters because they weren't expecting to get a lot of interest...I don't even know how my friend found out about it.

Aha! I found the page of the people who are actually trying to make it: http://www.theatreworksusa.org/show_detail.cfm?show=1580&selectedTab=1 (http://www.theatreworksusa.org/show_detail.cfm?show=1580&selectedTab=1)
Not that that clears up, you know, anything :P

OHOHOHOHOHOHOH IT ACTUALLY STARTS SOON
Like, March. wow. didn't check the dates. I hope you can rent DVDs or something. Or buy them for cheap, I seriously want to see this.
I hope Percy is cute.
Title: Re: Percy Jackson musical?
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on February 11, 2014, 02:55:35 PM
And you can have them bring a show to you! If I had way more time, money, and space than I do, I would totally do that.
Title: Re: Percy Jackson musical?
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 11, 2014, 03:04:47 PM
That'd be awesome to get them to come here. I'd so drag my friend to see it, she's weeping because of it's existence.
Title: Re: Percy Jackson musical?
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on February 11, 2014, 03:13:26 PM
Weeping happily or unhappily?

Also: I have decided that I approve of this fully. I'd like to see what they can do.
Title: Re: Percy Jackson musical?
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 11, 2014, 03:16:56 PM
Unhappily. She's not one for the arts, so I don't think she sees the potential.

I think it could either be horrifically great, or horrifically horrible. I dunno how much I'd enjoy it, though. I really can't see any of these characters singing
Title: Re: Percy Jackson musical?
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on February 11, 2014, 03:19:12 PM
I say again: Buffy made an amazing musical, and after that, I'll give anything as a musical a chance. I mean, if it was good, score. If it wasn't, well, it's only an hour long.
Title: Re: Percy Jackson musical?
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 11, 2014, 03:22:34 PM
But what can they sing about.

Title: Re: Percy Jackson musical?
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on February 11, 2014, 03:27:04 PM
Lightning bolts and prophecies and gods and monsters and quests and discovery and feelings!
Title: Re: Percy Jackson musical?
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 11, 2014, 03:30:00 PM
I'm just imagining Annabeth singing about how Percy drools in his sleep.
Title: Re: Percy Jackson musical?
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on February 11, 2014, 03:35:49 PM
Oh my... XD YES. There should definitely be a song about that XD
Title: Re: Percy Jackson musical?
Post by: |ĸιrα| on February 11, 2014, 03:39:56 PM
Yesss I hope it's in there. If not I'll write my own song about it
Title: Re: Percy Jackson musical?
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on February 11, 2014, 03:53:52 PM
Poor Percy. One of the few boys to have girls write songs about how he drools in his sleep...

when Shrek was made into  a Broadway musical a DVD of the musical came out. they might do it for Percy Jackson too.

 this sounds interesting, I wonder if it'll work out well or if it'll be like Spiderman the musical.

Its not Broadway
Title: Re: Percy Jackson musical?
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on February 12, 2014, 06:01:25 AM
Yes, but it is a musical based off a popular book & if a DVD of it was produced they would expand their market and possibly make more money off of it.
Title: Re: Percy Jackson musical?
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on February 12, 2014, 09:54:20 AM
I hope there's a DVD. Because knowing me, I'd sit through the whole thing even if it was awful.
Title: Re: Percy Jackson musical?
Post by: Julia The Bookworm on February 12, 2014, 11:11:14 AM
I would too.
Title: Re: Percy Jackson musical?

Thirded.

Now I want to write a Percy Jackson fan song. Don't be surprised if I actually do.
Title: Re: Percy Jackson musical?
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on February 12, 2014, 12:06:05 PM
If you do, can I hear?
Title: Re: Percy Jackson musical?
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 12, 2014, 01:19:36 PM
Sure, though I'll warn you that my voice is not the best.
Title: Re: Percy Jackson musical?
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on February 12, 2014, 01:20:56 PM
Well, mine's not either, besides a few specific songs. But I preform singing anyway. I look forward to hearing it :)
Title: Re: Percy Jackson musical?
Post by: BlueberryDoughnut on February 12, 2014, 01:24:46 PM
Thank you :) Now I just have to think of something.
Title: Re: Percy Jackson musical?

I think this is out now.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on January 11, 2017, 01:08:21 PM
The guys a good singer but the lyrics are almost too literal and a little cringey?? Imo anyways. It's the only song they released so I'm hoping there are others that are better. Holding onto hope

they released a picture of Percy and Annabeth! she's actually blonde!
(I didn't even realize this was a thing until today :P)

not like I can go see this musical though. Why couldn't they just make a tv show like Shadowhunters? there is plenty of material for that
