Harry Potter Nerds

Dynamics

In this edition we consider Harry Potter nerds.

I know, it can be hard to accept that the kid who came to auditions straight after playing an embarrassing approximation of quidditch on the main quad has a grasp on reality. Rather than dwelling on the point that this person lives in his own world a bit, consider the depth of imagination he might bring to your group. Such a group member may have some really interesting ideas that are a far cry from the beaten path.

So you don’t like the idea of the Harry Potter nerd bringing along his nerdy friends as hangers-on to your group. While it’s nice to be cool, don’t forget that any new fan contributes to your fan base, and never hurts to sell an extra ticket to your big show, or to sell one more CD.

OK, so the Harry Potter nerd might be a bit socially awkward, but what’s better than a truly socially awkward comment to help shut down extraneous conversations that are sidetracking your rehearsals? Use this to your advantage.
