“You’re so nice. You’re not good, you’re not bad, you’re just nice. I’m not good, I’m not nice, I’m just right. I’m the Witch. You’re the world.” – The Witch
This year in my Theatre Performance class, I will be taking on the role of the Witch from Into the Woods. Yet another antagonist, I am super excited about this character and have already started an intense analysis of her role in the musical, using techniques from my experience in Doubt. For those of you unfamiliar with this character, or musical, the Witch is more unique than most in that she actually transforms into a youthful version of herself halfway through the plot. This allows me to explore two completely diverse physical characteristics while still maintaining the true mental and emotional nature of her individuality. Although I am a little worried about the musical aspects of this performance, as I am an inexperienced singer, I am anxious to take on the challenge and broaden my abilities with the hopefulness of a great overall, final performance!
