In the pilot for Off Pitch, we not only meet the Grand Rivers Singers, or “GRS,” but we meet them at an incredibly dramatic time, which is saying something since everything for GRS is DRAMA.It’s the end of the season and everyone is super tense because of auditions. Not only are the group’s coaches, Rob and Tim, auditioning possible new members, but every current member must give a good, if not great, audition to keep their spot in the team. On top of that, the current cast of GRS must rehearse and give their final performance of the season–and how they do on that stage will determine if they stay in GRS or not.
With tensions running so high, which member of GRS delivered the Most Dramatic Performance in Off Pitch‘s debut episode?
Marcia had three amazing dramatic moments aside from holding her microphone in her audition “like an ice cream cone” and her boobs almost getting in the way of her vocal cords.
There was her fierce meltdown during dance rehearsals where she nobly argued that Tim and Rob shouldn’t be so rough on her inability to move her feet and arms at the same time.
Then, Marcia gave the most dramatic actual performance of the group when she messed up her Mary Poppins solo in the group’s final show. Not only did her voice sound sharp because of speaker malfunctions, but she flubbed a move during a choreographed dance routine and thereby threw her microphone into to the dirt in front of the stage.
Finally, when Marcia was one of the final girls not called to stage, she held her GRS castmate, Kayla, close and whispered, “Don’t cry for me if I don’t make it.” And then, Marcia wasn’t called and admitted in a private monologue to the camera, that it was “the loneliest feeling in the world” to stand alone on stage…left out of the group…left out in the cold…
But in a dramatic turn of events, Marcia was admitted back into the group despite her inability to dance or be Mary Poppins.
