Class Assignment: "Easter Bunny"




Class Assignment: We asked our company to write a short story or poem around the theme "Easter Bunny." We think you're going to love some of the assignments we got back....

SARAH HUNT

AN EASTER POEM
I once had a rabbit named Mabel
Who lived in a box in our stable
Then one morning I saw
She was not in her straw;
She was served up with rice on our table.

KRYSTINA ALABADO

The Easter bunny scared me
When I was short and small
But then he left me presents
So i shut up and loved them all

JULIE BENKO

Easter At My House
By Jew-Jew-Jewlie Benko

Those Easter Egg hunts were so fun—GOTCHA!
At my house we hunted the afikomen (matzah).
We never expected the Easter Bunny.
Instead I heard, “Get the door for Elijah, honey!”
The non-painted, hard-boiled eggs that we ate
Looked just like the one on the seder plate.
We’d remember our people’s return to Zion,
And say “Happy Passover! Drink up! L’Chaim!”

ANTHONY LEE MEDINA

I had an Easter Bunny
It's name was Darla
It died of constipation.

True story.

JULIE DANIELSON

When my brother was in high school, he was hired to dress up as the Easter Bunny in the mall.
He's 6 foot 4.

STEFFI D

"Tomorrow, I'm bringing Scissors!"
A Short Story, by Steffi D

One fine day, Ilse met the Easter Bunny at the stage door and he really liked her haircut.
And so, she exclaimed: "Tomorrow, I'm bringing scissors!", to which the Easter Bunny answered: "For God sake, Ilse, no! I love my haircut as it is!"

The next day, dark into the night, when the Easter Bunny was sleeping, Ilse took a pair of scissors and cut one of his ears shorter than the other to give him the crooked, uneven, bob look...

She didn't get any treats from him that year...
She will never get any treats from him ever again.

MARQUES WALLS

Melchior: You know, it's something I've been thinking a lot about.
Wendla: The day laborers?
Melchior: (Laughs) No. Easter. What do you think Wendla. Can the Easter Bunny really make a difference?

FREDDY HALL

Bunny is boppin around your house leaving chocolate
Under the kitchen table and hiding eggs that are really hard to find and sometimes you
Never really find them, or you do in like,
November
Yet, it's still a blast and you can't help but have a good time!

THE COMPANY OF SPRING AWAKENING WISHES ALL OUR FANS A VERY HAPPY PASSOVER/EASTER/VERNAL EQUINOX!

I like Freddy's and Julie's too.."or you do, in like, November." ha ha so true...

Also love Sarah's, who wins in terms of keeping most closely to a limirick rhyme scheme and meter (and I think is pretty hilarious).

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How can I send fan mail to the cast?

If you just want to send a quick note to all the cast members telling them you appreciate their work, you can email us here at totallytruckedblog (at) gmail (dot) com. I will be happy to forward your email to the cast, but to preserve their privacy, it is unlikely they will email you back (I will, though).

You can also send individual performers fan mail and care packages care of the theatre at which we are currently performing or will be performing. Go to the theatre's website (listed above), find their mailing address, write the actor's name as well as "Spring Awakening" and send c/o the theatre. Remember, we are often at these theatres for only a week so make sure to allow for delivery times. It's a better bet to send it to the theatre we will be going to next as they can always hold packages for us until we arrive. Letters received late will not be forwarded to our next location.

2. How Can I Audition for Spring Awakening?
From time to time, we have open calls in larger cities across the US. We will post any additional open calls here. Subscribe if you havn't already to keep informed. In the meantime, we've made it easy for you to submit yourself singing a folk/alternative rock song on video. Go to: http://www.springawakening.com/videoauditionsubmission/ Make sure your submission is less than 500 MB and is one of the accepted formats. Your screen should change and you should get a confirmation that says your submission has been received. Trust us, people are called in this way. Lucas Wells was cast because of an online submission!


3. How Do I Score On Stage Seats?
That is really up to the individual theatres. Most of them won't release the seats until just before performances because they want to make sure the house is sold first. Some do so online, although the ticketing systems they have in place often can't accommodate our unique seats onstage. Most of them are available only at the box office (though you can purchase them for a performance in the future). The Guilty Ones Street Team members have the rights to purchase these seats before the general public. Any seats left over will be released to the box office and may also be purchased as part of rush tickets (discounted, day-of tickets).

4. How Do I Join The Guilty Ones?

The National Guilty Ones Street Team is a way for fans of the show in each of our tour stops to help us spread the word. You will get access to parties, meet and greets, and other special events while meeting new friends who share your passion for the show, all while gaining some valuable marketing experience. You must be at least 15 yrs old. Email your contact info to nationalguiltyones (at) gmail (dot) com.

5. Can I Get Discounts?

From time to time, a theatre may offer us discounts to send out to our fans. We will post any here on the blog. Subscribe now!

6. Who runs this site? This site was created for fans to stay connected with our touring cast and follow their adventures around North America. Ideally, it would be in the voice of the cast members. Unfortunately, our cast members are often too tired or busy to post lengthy blog posts on a regular basis. Company members will contribute a post from time to time and every month we will have a compiled blog post that most every company member will participate in. The other stuff like updates, etc, will be posted by me. My name is Pun. I work for the production, love this show, its cast, and our fans, and I'm so very glad you're here!
