    LT News: TV Show Looking For Star of It's Stage Show

    http://www.raisingkids.co.uk/todaysnews ... 607_02.asp

    I'm Sportacus! June 20 2007 ---------------



    TV show looks for star of its stage show

    Does the man in your life have a fondness for spandex? Does he enjoy doing one-handed press-ups? Maybe he eschews all forms of junk food in preference of 'sport candy' like apples and carrots? If so – make sure he knows about the auditions taking place next week to cast the character of Sportacus in the LazyTown's new stage show.

    The audition will be held in London on 27 June at the Criterion Theatre in Piccadilly Circus from 10am. Organisers have asked that anyone attending comes with 'a short prepared dance routine to the Bing Bang song (demonstrating aerobics/gymnastics)' and the ability to 'speak with a cool Icelandic accent'. The successful candidate will end up with a year's contract as the star of the touring show which hits the UK's theatre circuit in September.

    I would love to see the auditions. It'd be awesome. Being in London, maybe Eddy can go.

    Argh, you see it's things like this that make me get all depressed that I've moved from London to Manchester. I could have hung around in Piccadilly Circus acting like a total fangirl.

    I've got tickets to Nick Jr's Jump Up event in Manchester next month, I'm hoping it's the *real* Sporty and not some imposter like it was last year.

    Dunno how busy Juli is (hasn't she appeared as Stephanie in live shows before?), but Magnus does have an international company to run. If it wasn't for the precedent of the Latibaer plays, I'd be rather surprised that he chooses to appear in the TV version.

    I've been debating whether to go to that for a while now.
    Sorry I didn't mention it, I thought you'd all already know about it.

    The thing is, it's £17.50 for decent tickets, plus it'll cost me £15 to get there by train, plus merch it'd end up costing me £50-£75.
    I'd pay that to see Julianna, but I can't afford to throw away that kind of cash if it's not her.

    I'd be kicking myself for the rest of my life if I didn't go and it did turn out to be her, though.
    It's almost worth going just for the merch.

    I'd go anyway, even if it wasn't her. I think it'd be hilarious.

    I'm tempted, but I'd probably spend the whole show thinking "You're not my Stephy. I want my Stephy."

    I'll be saying the same about Sporty.

    But I'm taking my son and his friend so they'll be happy whatever, they're only 3 years old

    That's pretty cool. Will there be one for the US in the future? Was the one in Buenos Aires testing the market?

    There might be a reason why Magnús won't be doing the stage show, in an interview somewhere he said he was getting older and it takes longer for him to warm-up than it used to. I need to find that article.

    *Thanks to Ultra Magnus for Nindanjoe.

    I dunno, I'd say there's a fair chance that Julianna will actually be the Stephanie. Since she's done tours in the past.
    Unless it says somewhere specifically that she won't be there.

    People over there are sooooo lucky. I'd go to a live show if there was one here in a heart beat. I'd go by myself if I had to, but I think I have one friend who'd go with me. I'd be less tempted to go if it wasn't Julianna, but my eyes are kinda bad, so I might go anyway, and just pretend it's her lol.

    I really hope they do a US tour sooner or later. All this talk about Magnus and Juli leaves me to wonder if Stefan would be in the live show.

    The last time Julianna and Magnus were promoting a live show here in the UK, it turned out it wasn't even them. I heard about it a week previous and was planning on going but didnt in the end cause it was too far to travel. Then a few days later the real Julianna was in london and I didn't get any heads up for that. I find it hard to know exactly when these things will happen but I'd definetly go to this show if Julianna will be there and especially if its in london, 20 minutes train journey.

    Really? I quite liked Peanut.

    I didn't expect it to be her on this tour, though.

    Peanut's cool but from what she told me, she didn't renew her contract with Lazytown.

    OMG - I so want to go and see this ! Is it excessive to fly to the other end of the world to see a kid's stage show ?

    The burning question is who will play Robbie ? That would make or break the show as far as I'm concerned.

    And what about the puppets ?

    Lazytown is perfect 'Panto' material. That's my theory why it seems so much more popular in the UK than in the US, the UK has a strong history of pantomime, and I don't think American kids have been exposed to that, so they don't 'get it'. Whaddya reckon ?

    BTW - who is 'Peanut ?' Do tell
