Bare: A Pop Opera

Auditions

Play

MATT
But, soft what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun
Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon

LUCAS & JACK
Who is already sick and pale with grief

ALAN
That thou her maid art far more fair than she

ZACK
Be not her maid, since she is envious

PETER
Her vestal livery is but sick

MATT & ALAN & ZACK
And none but fools do wear it - cast it off, cast it off!

IVY
'Tis but thy name that is my enemy
Thou art thyself, though not a Montague
What's Montague? It is nor hand, nor foot

NADIA
It is nor hand, nor foot, nor arm, nor face

IVY
Oh, be some other name belonging to a man

NADIA
Hey, what's in a name?

IVY
That which we call a rose
By any other name

KYRA, DIANE, NADIA & TANYA
Would smell as sweet

IVY & TANYA
My only love sprung from my only hate from my only

DIANA & RORY
Think of marraige now. Think of marraige now.

NADIA & KYRA
He's dead (x12)

PETER, MATT & LUCAS
Thy drugs are quick, thus with a kiss I die

SISTER CHANTELLE
I think I've seen all I can stand to see
Straight trip it girl, I know you didn't just interrupt me
And what's with the warm ups
No light in the house
You're quite a dancer, too bad you opened your mouth
I have a Romeo who's well-rehearsed
Then there's the rest of you, the show has got to be cursed
This play's a tragedy without a doubt
Now are there any other fools here to make me fall out?

JASON
With love's light wings did I o'er-perch these walls
For stony limits cannot hold love out
And what love can do that dares love

MATT
Attempt thy kinsmen are no stop to me

SISTER CHANTELLE
If they do see thee, they will murder thee

JASON & MATT
Alack

MATT
There lies more peril in thine eye
Twenty of their swords

JASON
Thou but sweet
And I am proof against their enmity

GIRLS
I would not for the world they saw thee here

JASON
I have night's cloak to hide me from their eyes
And but thou love me, let them find me here

MATT & JASON
My life were better ended by their hate

JASON
Than death prorogued, wanting of thy love

GIRLS
By whose direction found'st thou out this place?

JASON
By love, that first did prompt me to inquire

SISTER CHANTELLE
Enough! Shut up !
I'll go make my decisions; I'll be back in a few

DIANE
Oh, but Sister I didn't get to-

SISTER CHANTELLE
Girl, what is wrong with you?

PETER
What made you change your mind?

JASON
I thought I should try

TANYA
You nailed it

NADIA
Unforgettable

MATT
One talented guy

LUCAS
Reminder, we'll meet in Tanya's room on Friday night

PETER
We'll be there

NADIA
You're not going are you?

LUCAS
Get me orders

MATT
I don't know. I might.

LUCAS & JASON
Remember back when all we needed was beer?

NADIA
When we were freshmen and everything was clear

IVY
Except your skin

LUCAS
No more cat fights once we leave for the rave

NADIA
Then put the princess in the trunk

IVY
If we drag her behind I'll behave

SISTER CHANTELLE
