HELP! I’m a female casted in my schools production of “Beauty and the Beast” as GASTON!?
Everyone got casted the perfect part, however in our school there are only 2 boys in the Drama club and one of the is the beast. The other cannot keep a tune. So the director made me (A 16 year old female who is 5’7″ and 100 pounds on a good day) GASTON! How do I pull this off!!
Wow! This is going to be a great challenge for you. This is exciting!!! Start observing how a very well built male moves. Start researching the character through the script and don’t worry about the looks too much because that is what Hair, makeup and costumes are for! You should be so excited. This is a great challenge for a high school student. Throw yourself into it head first and relish it because roles like this don’t come along all the time. You really get to knuckle down and get to do something that not many female performers get to do.
