It'll be "Macbeth" for the first play. There's a tie between it and "A Winter's Tale," and... well, the latter's just not that good. I may take up scenes from it later once the bear from the Park Rangers sets arrives next year: http://www.brothers-brick.com/2011/10/19/2012-lego-city-sets-bring-hillbillies-bears-forest-fires-park-rangers-news/

If you don't understand ham, hit up TV Tropes for "Large Ham": http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LargeHam

The musical of "Carrie" is a notorious bomb. I recall reading, though, that it's still being developed after nearly 25 years and has, allegedly, gotten decent of late... though it's gotten a big production.

And it's been since 1 May 2010 for a theatrical scene. We had the brief interlude for an awards show, and we had the song-and-dance for "Saving Private Ryan," but we stopped short in Act III - before Banquo's ghost shows up to mess with Macbeth's head. We'll take a weekend or two for auditions - there's many characters you've seen here that I want to re-emphasize, and a few more I want to introduce.

And I've gone and limited the audience to those who are available in this realm now (i.e., "Ersatz Meadows"), so attendance for the play is wide open - since we've not seen the full population of the place. Feel free to suggest likely actors from this place who'd belong here and would want to watch; make sure to indicate what minifig pieces are necessary for the effect and I'll see if I can craft them ably.

Hmm... do I have enough similar pieces to make an army of Brian Blesseds?

What do you mean by this place. The realm you're in or this site? Because if it's this site I may have a guest for you. But if it's from the realm you're in I'd have to see some auditions.

I would have thought it would depend on whether the webcomic could withstand an army of Brian Blessed minifigs without causing another portal to materialize! :D

Good call, Writer13; I've amended a few statements in that paragraph to make it clearer.

To reiterate - the realm is "Ersatz Meadows," and it seems like they're stuck. The audience, then, will have to be a locals - but we've not seen all the locals yet. Hell, some of them will show up for the casting call...

In that case you should make either Mary sue or one of the fetts a weird sister.
