Seen onstage - Harry Potter cast members

In honour of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 coming out this weekend, and inspired by Rev Stan, I have done a count up of how many Harry Potter movie cast members I have seen in shows. While I'm here, I will say I don't feel especially bereft by the movie saga finally being over after ten years. For me, the story came to an end with the final pages of the final book. I knew what happened. I had my closure. The movies are just a nice added extra. But I have enjoyed watching them and got FAR more of a kick out of compiling this list than I should have. So here it is! (With occasional commentary, but not for everyone.)

By the way, you all should totally do this yourselves. Here is an almost definitive list of cast members. Link to your posts when you've finished!

2011 Interval Awards - the rest

And last but by no means least, a lot of random stuff that has just made me happy during the first six months of 2011 theatre-going goshdarnit.

2011 Interval Awards - the performers

If you were here in January, you know the drill. If not, it is as follows: musical performers and play performers are not differentiated between. Leading performers and supporting performers are not differentiated between. This is simply a top 5 of actors and a top 5 of actresses. And maybe a stray or two at the bottom, we'll see how it goes.

2011 Interval Awards - the creatives

Seriously, the creatives work SO HARD and receive SO LITTLE recognition. We should start applauding good technical work. Next time you're at a play with nifty lighting, try shouting "BRAVO FOR THE LIGHTING!" while you applaud, let me know how it goes. It'd be brilliant if we could turn it into a thing!

2011 Interval Awards - the productions

Blame Lorannah. She gets to December, and she can't remember what she saw in the first half of the year. Or something. So she thought it might be quite nice to do a six month round-up, in much the manner or a yearly round-up, to make sure that the first half of the year doesn't get neglected when the blogosphere gets happy with awards. As I am a sucker for anything that gets me blogging without the commitment of writing regular reviews, I am ALL OVER THIS. So without further ado! Let's get intervalling!
