And it's not a first??

Some time ago, I got the 12 page rules document for ambug666's Broadway musical larp, along with my 7 page character sheet (not counting stats) and sheets for various groups of characters.

Today, I got the 44 page lyrics book for the musical.

The scary thing is that ambug666 tells me that there has been at least one other larp with a lyrics book.

Okay, I'm pretty good on "Hello Dolly", which is the obvious song to sing. I can fake "Colonel Buffalo Bill", as my character is also the Dolly from Annie Get Your Gun.

She's also Mrs. Johnson from How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, so I've been listening to "Brotherhood of Man". Here's this bit part character in the musical who has no real reason to be part of the song. She's there to be a woman's voice, rising like a gospel singer's, high, loud, and clear as a bell above all the men's voices.

mneme tells me that I have to go into head voice for this, which is contrary to my self-training. I can do loud, I'm sure, and high. But I don't know how good it'll sound.

It's quite logical for Dolly to sing this part. it's exactly the sort of thing she'd sing if she were actually in that musical.

I'm also Grace from Annie, and I just realized that this means I need to learn another song, "I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here". I think Annie does most of the actual singing. Time to hit youtube again. I've already used it to discover the Coffee Break song which was left out of the movie version of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
