whore for the audience: the aftermath

Okay, so it wasn’t that bad after all.

I mean, it wasn’t as if we didn’t expect the audience to laugh like crazy at us, the Merry Band of Crossdressers!

And Jonathan (Cordelia)’s outfit was really… wow.

I hadn’t actually seen him wear it before the performance! Just yesterday he was still fretting over getting a decent costume, then last night he was upbeat and saying he got a cool pink costume.

But it still looked really weird.

But with an actual outfit, he turned from being overtly extra (in rehearsals) to the guy who got the laughs!

I’d hate to say it, but it was a really bad performance by our standards, and only the easily-amused audience made us pull this off. The energy level had hit a low because we were all fretting about it before that, and I was feeling quite stoned on the “hot seat” (I was supposed to interact more with the other contestants, see).

And… yes, girls think crossdressing Rafflesian boys are funny. It’s kind of freaky.

Crossdressing in Lit Sem is also the best way to get in touch with long-forgotten primary school friends from RGS.

Random Sec 2 RI student at busstop: Hey are you Sec 2 or Sec 3?
Me: Sec 3.
RS2RSAB: You played the girl just now right?
Me: Yeah.
RS2RSAB: *sniggers*

It is also a grand way to gain respect from your juniors.

The rest of Lit Sem was boring. I chose a Film Critique workshop which was boring. I meant to sign up for a film-making workshop, since I obviously didn’t want to critic films. (I’d much rather be a food critic. Mmm…)

Talking about food, Greg’s Souffle happened to be staged just before ours! It was as good as the other day, because some jokes never get old, especially political jokes and gay Frenchmen.

The first play, done by our Sec Twos (2A I believe), wasn’t really good. I couldn’t hear them through their accents (intentional or otherwise), and the only thing remotely funny about them was the long-Indian-name joke, which got old reeeeeally fast. Then, for some reason they decided to get random extras from their class on stage to dance at the end, which was weird. Our MOV at Lit Sem last year was so much better! How could they be the best play in the level!

King Lee was funny as always, but they were too soft. And not everyone got the political jokes. To us, we found ‘Gonerlee’ and ‘Leegan’ funny names because we know the original names, but the audience hadn’t read King Lear before.
