I'm glad that I am making a believer out of you
In all honesty I was really sad when I didn't think anyone was responding because I have so much enthusiasm for this topic while others seem to... ignore it
I think it would be neat if some people who knew how to do these things (write music, choreograph/block theater, act, design props, write etc.) got together and just made a sample of an HP musical. A single scene in one of the books that was reworked and recorded. I think it would be neat to see HP fanfilms. God knows, I watch so many Star Trek fan-films I'm starting to get a headache it might be nice to see something different for a change.
I'm moving to Vancouver soon and I know a few talented people myself. I might see if I can coerce ummm... I mean implore them for help. It would be a big job, but I think I may be able to find people who are just as enthusiastic as myself.
lol, I just had an image in my head of Snape going around the castle singing "When You're Evil" by Voltaire! Hahahaha! I would never do that, but it is quite amusing... in my mind anyways. (Tripping McGonagall down the stairs XD I swear, I really do love her, it just fits the song is all!)
That Dark Mark musical sounds interesting! Kudos to you!

High School Musical? Uh, that's what I thought they were.........

Well, and that's what I think would make this whole thing annoying and unwatchable -- there would be little entertainment value, or as little as could be got away with and still have money made!

The sad fact is when people hear musical they think...

Keep it gay!

Well it worked for the "Producers" But if they wanted to be taken seriously by true fans, do it like High School Musical meets Phantom of the Opera and Chicago darker and more depressing at certain parts... But keep the singing down to the parts where its needed, and keep Voldemort from singing...

I remember once reading Springtime for Voldemort is not a good idea for a school play...

I completely agree. There are some people who just WOULDN'T sing (Voldemort singing would be... questionable and perhaps a snickering moment). I think you can still pull off some people you wouldn't expect singing, but the key to that is that when they sing they have to sound like themselves. Make sure that the personality of the individual is very evident in the way it is written and how it is performed.
A darker musical would be really neat, even for the first couple of books because, lets face it, CoS could be much darker if it was done for an older audience.

Re: Harry Potter the Musical? Watch it or Not?

Instead of singing Voldemort... I remember an old play My Fairlady we where required to review it way back when as I recall Rex Harrison didnt do any singing... His song is a speach with musical accompaniment so it didnt look like singing.

Re: Harry Potter the Musical? Watch it or Not?

I'm going to have to watch "My Fair Lady" again some day!
I can't believe I don't own it as I have a huge crush on Jeremy Brett :P
Hmmm, I like that idea! It would keep the reserved and more severe characters in their places, making it far more interesting and far less giggle inducing. A very good idea

Re: Harry Potter the Musical? Watch it or Not?

Thank You, I just hope someone picks up the Idea and runs with it as i said once and say it again once deathly hallows gets shown... We're all left in the curb with nothing to look forward to.

Hurray! Harry Potter the Musical is a no go. This is very good news because IMO, it would have been a complete disaster.

yes...In my Potter-inspired musical Dark Mark, Voldemort does not sing per se. Tom Riddle has two or three songs in the first act but after the transformation to voldemort, he mainly just yells with music backing him.

Not a bad idea! Hmm... Do you have a song where he blatantly talks about muggle suppression? That I feel would make a scary number.

Re: Harry Potter the Musical? Watch it or Not?

not at the moment, though I can add one later on if you like...the theme of Dark Mark leans mor toward those of duality and bravado through the prime examples of the Slytherin men (Tom, Lucius, Severus, Regulus, Draco) so I try to bring their internal conflict to the forefront rather than nefarious plotting.

Re: Harry Potter the Musical? Watch it or Not?

This has got to be one of the silliest HP-related ideas so far.

Thanks! Just keep it up... You'll find something to do with your script weather it gets shown at a local high school or something... Never know when it could be handy

Well if you keep it "GAY" as it where it would be a bad idea, but make it DARK foreboding and depressing would that make up for it?

As I always say after DH movies... We got nothing else to look forward to... Not unless someone makes an Animated series then we got something to watch.
-Or-
JKR gets someone ot co-write Potter... But that of course if off topic (Sorry)

Anyway... All we can hope for is someone out there comes with a winning solution for everyone to keep everyone satisfied and a fan.

I would DEFINITELY watch it if I had the opportunity to. But I would much rather see a Harry Potter version of Avenue Q...you know, HP characters as puppets singing and cracking jokes (but Avenue Q is basically adult humor, so they would be excluding a lot of HP fans). Watching Snape sing would be hilarious.

Nope. I don't care who the cast is, who writes, directs etc. I'm totally convinced it would be a huge blunder and a laughing stock. But that's just me.

I actually wouldn't mind seeing this. Mel Brooks could write it and turn it into a comedy.

Think about it...

No. They can't all be Buffy musicals.

If anybody wants to see what a Harry Potter musical might look like:

That's just the first part of part one, but the rest are available on YouTube.
