Over The Rainbow

I can see the appeal in Danielle but there's not a lot of joy in her face.
Her and Sophie seem to look perpetually worried or disinterested.

More to the point does any one know whether she went throught a proper audition process and it was a coicindence that she got her letter of acceptance last week after all her recall auditions- or as I suspect ALW used his influence to get her a place.If so I would be interested to know which drama schools can be"bought". in this way. I have heard a rumour that most drama schools want a variety in their cohorts so when they have got their quota of a certain type, they dont take any more- however talented people are at the audition process. Perhaps in return for funding/ bribery some of the schools always hold back some places for proteges.
Dont get me wrong- Bronte is very talented and she had been one of my favourites and if you read my review last year I commented that she was among a talented cast in the YMT production of a Winters Tale at Yvonne Gumby Theatre in Guildford- and I am pleased for her.
One of my favourites is Lauren as she has done her training and I have confidence she will have the stamina and experience to still be playing the part by the time the seats are reduced and I can watch it! Otherwise I would audition her for Nessarose.
I also like Steph- she has an Elphaba look about her- but they could do with turning her mike up a bit- I cant always hear her.
Danielle is growing on me and I look forward to seeing her develop .
They are my top 3 now Bronte has gone.
Another one of my gripes is the BBc pretending the Sunday night results show is live when we all know that it is recorded straight after the Sat night after the panel have changed outfits. I do hope Lauren didnt get into trouble when she mentioned on Sunday about the judges decision "tonight"

I suspect the answer is "all of them". They're in it to make money, not to give the world the finest performances of the future, and it doesn't hurt them at all to occasionally base admissions on the amount of publicity they'll get, or even just the amount of plain old cash. It could be that the school took the decision itself.

Bronte had her place at drama school before the programme aired, they just didn't announce it until after she left. Glad that someone mentioned YMT; I saw A Winter's Tale in Guildford also and thought it was phenomenal. I was actually suprised more of the final 20 hadn't been members, given their level of talent and their VT's claiming a life-long love of musical theatre...I think Sarah from the wild-card group had been a member, but just those two. I think it's a brilliant organisation and a much better option for some of the younger ones to develop through than Stage School (as distinct from drama school).

In brighter news, the group number was much better than the shambles that was Buenos Aires
Pity the child with no such weapons
No defence, no escape from the ties that bind
