Marsters Class. James Marsters is doing a play about schooldays as part of his convention on the Queen Mary this Autumn.

CLASS ACT

James is heading back to the classroom with a hilarious comedy looking back on
the highs and lows of school life.

He and two other actors will be performing extracts from John Godber's hit show
Teechers and will play every role - teachers, school caretakers, schoolgirls
and schoolboys.

The one-off performance offers a fast-paced, fun-filled finale to the James
Marsters & Friends weekend aboard the Queen Mary in September.

The poignant comedy evokes memories of exams, homework and growing up and sees
James return to his stage roots.

Entry to the performance will be open to all ticket holders for this event.

To guy Gold tickets for this event please go to http://www.jamesmarsters.com and

I believe I edited the url while you were composing your post.
Teechers is great fun - it's very British, though. I wonder what accent he'll use for it.

Oh I wish I had huge sums of money and time....
Damn, this gets better and better and I still cannot go! Arrgh.
OMG, I can't believe this, and I think my ticket number is low enough to be in the front row. *Faints*
wrikiwood - I'm so envious! Please memorize every moment and then share them with those of us who cannot attend and are in painful JM-withdrawal. The October release of Shadow Puppets is so very far away...
*Steals wrikiwood's ticket while wriki's unconscious... but then feels guilty and gives it back*
Damn, this gets better and better and I still cannot go! Arrgh.

Ditto. *Stands in corner and repeatedly bangs head against wall. Snivelling and whingeing all the while.*
Oh lord I wish I was going to this now!
Wow, this event just keeps getting better and better
And Teechers is a great choice

"Fast moving, inventive and highly entertaining, Teechers vigorously evokes life at a modern Comprehensive, using the format of an end-of-term play to sketch a drama teacher's progress through two terms of recalcitrant classes, cynical colleagues and obstructive caretakers until he departs for the safer waters of a private school. The play runs the gamut of emotions, climaxing with the final scene which gives a poignant edge to the comedy. '.......the style is loud, cheerful, butch and pointedly political.'

Sounds right up James' street... and I believe it's a play he's done before when he was running the New Mercury theatre company in Seattle.
Damn...who can we beg, bribe or promise our firstborn to in order to get them to make a DVD of this event???? For those of us who can not go it would be a wonderfull way for us to participate. Is there any hope of a DVD...God...it would sell like hotcakes....
YES, YES, YES!!! A DVD of this event would be fabulous! Himber Entertainment - are you listening?
I'm not HE, but I do know that commercial electronic reproduction of a living playwright's work is usually a very expensive proposition, with royalties and so on, so I wouldn't be holding my breath on that.

The beauty of Shakespeare (in that context) is that he's well dead, if you see what I mean. Maybe James should have done a one-man Hamlet instead. Though personally I'd like to see him in one of the comedies, like Dream or Much Ado.

LOL, I'll try but I've been known to go into a James mystical place and don't remember anything after he speaks. I will bring my laptop to the con, if only to drool online. :)

Welcome to the naughty corner, debw!
It is not our fault! Midsummer Night's Dream = Bottom and then your mind just...

Oh alright. Shove over.
How I look forward to the day when James can be back on a stage for an entire play with no convention surrounding it (on the East Coast if you please, Mr Marsters).

Sulking corner, naughty corner. Sulking corner, naughty corner. I can't decide at the moment.
bloodflowers, do like I do. Alternate.
