A bit darker, but still a smara$$. From my days in the theater I've found that establishing a specific look and backstory help a LOT. I had to do a lot of discussion with the band, too, and found out that while on tour we may be mingling before/after with the crowd, and I'll be in character than as well. And if someone wants to see something close up... boom. But I also agree that the best characters will be modifications/amplifications of yourself. I have a bit of Ron Weasley's snark, so that is helpful ;) But my character is somewhat haunted by the past, like Sirius Black. I was going to play even darker, but thankfully that's not what the band wants. The "show" sort of presumes everyone in the audience is a wizard, not a muggle. Anyway, I agree that if your character is so far afield from your own self you are going to have to work that much harder to nail the performance, on TOP of the technical aspects of the magic... And that Rumplestiltskin cat sounds like a ball of lightning! [/quote]
