Top 20 Dream Roles For Musical Theatre
Personal Image

As any theatre kid does, I have a list of roles I would love to play. Some of them may be completely unattainable, but a girl can dream, can't she?

Judy Bernly

"9 to 5"

"Judy Bernly, please hold."

Maria Rainer

"The Sound of Music"

"Raindrops on roses, and whiskers on kittens. ..."

Liesl von Trapp

"The Sound of Music"

"I'm Liesl. I'm sixteen years old and I don't need a governess."

Katherine "Plumber" Pulitzer


"I have something to believe in, now that I know you believe in me."

The Baker's Wife

"Into the Woods"

"We can't do this, you have a princess. And I ... have a ... a baker."

Grainne "Grace" O'Malley

"The Pirate Queen"

"Am I to be just woman? No. Not I!"

Elle Woods

"Legally Blonde"

"Bend and snap!"


"Legally Blonde"

"And if your Irish boy tires of you, you're allowed to shoot him in the knees!"

Brooke Wyndham

"Legally Blonde"

"I'll get you whipped into shape!"



"Impossible, for a plain yellow pumpkin to become a golden carriage!"

Reno Sweeney

"Anything Goes"

"But if, baby, I'm the bottom you're the top!"



"The sun'll come out tomorrow!"

Anna Leonowens

"The King and I"

"It's very exciting when you're young and you're sitting on a small gilt chair. Your eyes lowered, terrified you'll be a wallflower."

Dorothy Gale

"The Wizard of Oz"

"How can you talk if you haven't got a brain?"

Anastasia "Anya" Romanov


"Back to who I was, on to find my future!"

Polly Baker

"Crazy for You"

"Embrace me, my sweet embraceable you!"

Meg Brockie


"I'm highly attracted to you. Why, when I look at you I feel wee tadpoles jumping up my spine."


"The Little Mermaid"

"I don't know when. I don't know how, but I know something's starting right now. Watch and you'll see. Someday I'll be part of your world!"



"*giggle* Toss, toss!"


"Mamma Mia"

"Does your mother know?"

Will I ever get to play all of these characters? Probably not. I probably won't even be able to play half of them, whether the show isn't interesting or I just don't fit the character profile the director wants. But a girl can dream about the roles she wants, no matter how realistic. One day I hope to be able to play at least some of these characters.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
