In order to keep the other threads from cluttering, I figured I'd start a thread just for the shows. So only talk about METRO's shows here, okay?

PEOPLE WANTING TO AUDITION FOR STAGE HANDS: Please audition at one of the listed times, as you would for cast. All shows need stage hands!


*Note: These are just the released character lists. Secret characters are always possible in METROCON's shows!

To avoid confusion, please refer to these lists as "character lists." Cast list implies a cast has been chosen, which is untrue at this time.

Please realize some characters need their costume completed in advance. Also some characters fall under METROCON's "Loyalty Policy," but please don't hesitate to audition for that roll!

I'm kind of happy I am not involved with the shows outside of making sure they run on time (or as close to on time as feasibly possible!!!). Sure, I miss performing with a physical pain, but I'm really enjoying my new position with the convention.

I'm a little sad that I am going to miss Star Party AGAIN, but I will be all but camping in the ballroom!!!

Updated thread with two knew characters to the Chess roster: Billy Lee and Jimmy Lee from Double Dragons!!

At least I'm trying to... it won't let me update the thread!

We're currently having an issue with editting the first post in a thread - hopefully we'll have it fixed soon!

I was throughly surprised with the new addition. At first, I was like "What?", but now I'm like.. "THIS had to be done" XD! I'm really excited on how the story is going to pan out for this year! what was the story theme again... Visions? oohh, the suspense =)

Well, I would have been there today at the auditions had my friend not canceled on me. I have issues with meeting new people for the first time at such events, so I do prefer to not be alone. I'm looking to go to the next date, still, but I'm wondering, is it a friendly sort of environment for newer people?

I know whenever I am there, I welcome everyone with open arms, ESPECIALLY new people. There are cliques everywhere, but the auditions is a friendly place. And if anyone makes you feel like you don't belong, screw them. They obviously don't have the METROCON spirit!!

I hope I will be able to come for next week's audition. I had a friend who might be interested, but I'd have to check with him first (need a ride from Gainesville to Tampa).

I guess the old saying is true. Third time really is a charm. After two rejections, I finally got a part in the chess match this year! Awesomesauce!

I wanted to try out this year, but I have events and travel I want to do during the months practice is held. Look forward to seeing the events, though!

I'm looking forward to the events! Can't wait to see everyone at their best!
