Title: Seussical and the great northern migration
Post by: Mordyan on November 06, 2007, 03:39:45 PM
As per request:

A Seussical !!?!?! *googles it*

Hey thats pretty awesome for the holidays.

Hey Mordyan, despite being about 3+ hours away please start a thread and maybe we'll make a separate gathering for it!

I'm sorting on this new 'fix' for theatre and stuff (yes I used to be a Thespian myself ^_^ ) so if you dont mind random fani-mafia members going to your show that sounds like a great idea.

I am opening up the idea for a northern adventure. I am acting in the musical Seussical (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seussical (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seussical)) from November 16th through Dec 8th. The performances are Thursdays 7:00 pm, Fridays and Saturdays 8:00 pm, and Sundays at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $15 (thurs/sun) an $18 (fri/sat) with discounts for students.

This is a community theater production but I feel it will be a good one. I am playing a Who and also General Ghengis Khan Schmitz and get to sing and dance my way through a bit of the show.

Depending on what day we can also grab a bite to eat. Also my place would be available for random entertainment, including Wii, Anime, board games (Betrayal at the House on the Hill, Arkham (a Cthulu board game), Munchkin, Ninja Burger, etc.), or just hanging out. I have limited floor space but if anyone want to "rough" it they are also welcome to stay.

I know its a long trip but let me know if anyone is interested and we can pick a date.

Whoo hoo! Go Mordyan~ I knew you had that Thespian blood in you.  You're always "acting" like a weirdo at Fanime, and I could totally tell you were putting up that act.... Weren't you? lol.  j/k. :P 

So, anyways, I'd love to come see your play, I was a Drama student in HS and love plays.  Especially satirical ones. XD

I'll let you know about my schedule when you guys choose a date.  I'm most likely going to be free from November 16 - November 28. D:

If I can get a ride. I will be more than glad to go.

I've seen your acting ability at ren-faire, if you can stay in character that long, I'd like to see you on stage :3

Ukiah is where he lives.

To Mordyan: This sounds interesting. Put me down as a yes and since I love road trips...hehehe

As mentioned I live in Ukiah which is about 3 hours (I can make it in  2 hours 45 minutes) north from San Jose on highway 101. You basically drive to San Francisco and then go across the Golden Gate Bridge and keep heading north.

Ukiah is a city of about 10-15 thousand. There is no mall, though we do have some big name department stores. And within the last year we finally got a Gamestop! Sadly there are no anime shops. And the local book store doesn't carry much manga (I don't think they know what to order...). There are also several Asian restaurants within walking distance from my house... some of them are even good. ;)

So yeah its a long ride. I was thinking the Sunday might work out best for people since its a two o'clock show. You could get here by lunch and then leave before it gets to late. Otherwise I am up for Saturday night as well. As I said, people are more than welcome to grab some floor space.

I'll probably open up a poll if there is enough interest.

saturday works for me best and the 8 p.m showing on that day is cool by me. Now the thing is, what date? and are you sure you're going to let people use your house and have a sleep over? I'm down with that idea as well, since it's 3 hrs from where I live. I say go for it man lol

Well put me down as a MAYBE, I really want to see Seussical! I will bring my friend Muriel =) we both love Dr. Seuss

I don't mind at all. Like I said I have a small place (studio sized) but I have had parties with 15-20 people, though I can't sleep more than about 6 on the floor unless you are real friendly. I don't expect a large turn out though, so it shouldn't be a problem if thats what people decide.

I can also check on room rates for people. There are a couple motels within walking distance that are reasonable as well as several bigger chain hotels within a five minute drive.

Either way people can hang out here before and after the show.

Satuday $18 ($15 student) Sunday $15 ($12 student)

Assigned seating?
Yes. The theater seats 130. We can reserve your tickets and you can pay for them the day of the show.
Quote
Did I read Sleepover? (Max of 6 guests or really (noise friendly)ppl?)
Yes if desired. I have a small place and there are no extra couches or anything like that. You will have to provide a mat for the floor and a sleeping bag. Due to space limitations I can only sleep probably 6 people comfortably (unless they like to snuggle).

Directions to Theatre or your home (by pm of course)
Contact info (by Pm)
I will be happy to provide both to whomever is coming. The theater is only 5 minutes away from my house.

Sure. One day it might even be worth... one whole dollar! ;D

Woot! Go Northerns!
...Even though I'm now a southern...

If I'm not working, I'll come. I can always crash at my parent's house on the way back.
Title: Re: Seussical and the great northern migration
Post by: RyuHayabusa on November 08, 2007, 11:21:17 PM
I guess I'll take a look around and see if I can get a cheap motel room for the night. If anyone wants to crash with me, be my guest. I'll sneak you in :3

Post by: Jerry on November 09, 2007, 10:12:04 AM
Let see...

now we need to decide on dates unless we're goin on separate occasions...

So possible dates:

Sunday Nov. 17th Matinee show (2PM)

Hey show still playing Thanks giving weekend? (Nov 24 8PM show
or 25th 2PM show)? I'm probably free that weekend...

I'm NOT available weekend of Nov 30, Dec 1-2 because of tenative plans to be in LA/Disneyland.

Otherwise that least the last show which is Dec 8th 8PM. After show party i would think....  :P

Anyone's 2 cents?

We'd better crank out some ideas soon.

Man the holidays are rushing up father than I thought.
I still need ideas for a mini xmas tree this year.
Title: Re: Seussical and the great northern migration
Post by: gmontem on November 09, 2007, 10:15:09 AM
I don't intend to sleep over so it would have to be a Sunday for me.    I vote for Nov 25.
Title: Re: Seussical and the great northern migration
Post by: Mordyan on November 09, 2007, 08:35:12 PM
I have added a poll.

The first Saturday, Nov. 17th is pre-booked and not available to the general public. And the last Saturday, Dec. 8th is strike and cast party, so I wouldn't be able to hang out afterwards.

I'm not sure what we could do before the show at 8PM...

Laser Tag anyone?  :P

I have been to Q-Zar since I literally got SHOT in one...

My Twin and totally seen it.  :o

Post by: gmontem on November 12, 2007, 02:03:55 PM
So for those people who want to go Saturday, are you going to sleep over or drive back home?  IMO it seems too much to inconvenience Mordyan and sleep over for the night (or early morning).  Do keep in mind he has a show to perform the following day.
Title: Re: Seussical and the great northern migration
Post by: Jerry on November 12, 2007, 05:34:58 PM
I'd like to hang out, but I'll probably drive back.

and I'm sure my twin would like the comfy-ness of her own bed.

Pre-show hang out?

Show

hang out/late night snackage

drive home.

wash, rinse, repeat.

Title: Re: Seussical and the great northern migration
Post by: Jerry on November 20, 2007, 08:01:07 AM
heading up to benicia is about an hour drive...

then plus up to Ukiah is another 2 on top of that.

show is at 8pm...

so technically the late-est i could leave is around 5pm ish

but i think my twin may want to head up earlier.

I'll post ot ring you the day of.

Thanks again Mordyan!

I'm a bit jealous that I wasn't the one winked at...  ;)

Also, it was fun sitting in the "PIT"

+1 to happy-ness meter when a cute "bird" spits on my head  :P

from everything being label "Ukiah" ... random chinese food.

Songs dancing, a cute cat in a hat, giggles, nekid passengers, and melting friends..

Dont forget the decorum. not only was the stage colourful so was the area...

the daycare, next to the jail, next to the high school, and the cemetary with 'interesting' names...  :o

Those Deer(s) are darn troublemakers...

Mordyan - thanks for opening up your awesome pad, wonderful show and cast, good times drinking it up, singing a songs, and blasting away at zombies...

Karisma - and you have.... A BRAND NEW TV!!!!! sorry for the false advertising... what are customers suppose to think when its call "SLIM Fit" ???
I fail, but you win cause you can finally game in STYLE...

"I cant believe in going in to my first battle" (in high pitch girly voice that sounds its from a hentai  ::)...) 

"Oh my it looks like you know how to use a weapon"
(Its hilairous that its a Fork weapon... personally I would prefer 'spooning'  :D

Karen - this is what you get for teaching this game, its never a boring road trip when someone gets nekkid in my back seat... and next time lets leave the dead alone in the cemetary? no more zombie girlfriends following me home this time k?

DLZ - always the helpful wing man, thanks for driving part way home when i got tired... course having random legs/feet in my lap is a different story. and next time let the HAWT gamer girl hit on me when we go shopping next time... GAH i fail at games yet again  :-[

All in all, this was indeed a fun migration to North Cali...

Next Event:

THE ABRIDGED SHAKESPEAR SERIES
