A song I want in Nerdy Prudes Must Die (if it’s the final Hatchetfield show):
A song filled with desperate hope of destroying the thing that’s causing the disasters across the different universes. Something like “From Now On” from The Greatest Showman, but darker. Kinda like “Ok, we’re done with this bs, we know what’s up, time to fuck shit up.”
OO maybe it could use prerecorded scenes that could be put up on a projector, starting out darker, but the stage lights build up! Lights flash onto each actor, having a segment to showcase each character’s versions, showcasing the different timelines of different characters mirroring the actors on stage! (E.g: Lex’s light flashes on as she’s got a few solo lines, the Lex in TGWDLM/BF are mirroring what NPMD Lex is doing.) And as the song progresses, it’s building in intensity to that burst of energy and hope and fear and satisfaction in the final chorus!! I feel like this song has potential to be kinda dance heavy?? When the burst actually happens, we could see some kind of physical stage effect like confetti or streamers or SOMETHING THAT BUILDS THE HYPE AS SOME KIND OF CYMBAL CRASH OR BIG MOMENT as the the projections come over the actors, and fade out, leaving the NPMD versions of the characters, almost in tears because they’ve found hope in something, they’ve made a decision to finally set their lives, and their other timeline lives straight! The song ends with them all in some kind of staggered V formation (it makes sense in my head), with Alice and Deb lets be honest the main characters of the show at the point of the V holding hands, and secondary cast staggered backwards in the V, looking pissed off but also strong and ready to take on whatever eldritch horror is out there. Stage blacks out in an instant. No fade, just black, right on the final note. Which would sound fuckign epic if it was a low note. Like, ok, we’re done waiting for things to fix themselves on their own. This is serious. Time to kill a bitch. Cut to intermission. I now have ideas for the beginning of act 2 but i’ll put that in another post if i ever decide to just ramble on stagung again.
I love staging.
this is a mess i apologise.
