A message from Mr. Jackson

The cast for The Lord of the Rings will be as follows:

Aragorn -- Stuart Townsend
Boromir -- Sean Bean
Frodo Baggins -- Elijah Wood
Gandalf -- Ian McKellen
Gimli -- John Rhys-Davies
Legolas -- Orlando Bloom
Meriadoc Brandybuck (Merry) -- Dominic Monaghan
Peregrin Took (Pippin) -- Billy Boyd
Samwise Gamgee -- Sean Astin

Arwen -- Liv Tyler
Elrond -- Hugo Weaving
Galadriel -- Cate Blanchett
Haldir -- Craig Parker

Denethor -- John Noble
Eomer -- Karl Urban
Eowyn -- Miranda Otto
Faramir -- David Wenham
Theoden -- Bernard Hill
Wormtongue -- Brad Dourif

Bilbo Baggins -- Ian Holm
Rosie Cotton -- Sarah McLeod

Gollum/Smeagol -- Andy Serkis
Saruman -- Christopher Lee

The first rehearsal will be on Monday. Everyone will need to be there to recieve copies of their scripts, but we will not need many of you (those playing Rohirrim, for instance) until later. A rehearsal/performance schedule will be distributed with scripts on Monday. We will still need many extras for the parts of various Elves, Men, Hobbits, Orcs, etc, so if you're interested, please let myself, Ms. Walsh, or Ms. Boyens know. This will be a very high-tech show, so we'll be putting out a call for tech crew sometime in the next few weeks.

Thank you to everyone who tried out, you were all wonderful, and we look forward to this being a great show!

OOC Note: Yes, of course Viggo Mortensen will eventually be playing Aragorn. But if you're familiar with the casting process, Stuart Townsend was originally cast as Aragorn. Jackson & co. eventually decided that they'd cast him too young, and there were some other things that forced Stuart to leave. Viggo was brought on. In our version, it'll be similar... well, you'll see how things play out.
