Pronouns: The Musical – Act 4: He

The Story

Welcome to Pronouns: The Musical.

Some may ask, “Pronouns?”, but we at A Frank Angle say, “Why not pronouns!”

A subset of nouns, pronouns serve as a substitute for nouns and noun phrases. These bits of linguistics and grammar are versatile and can almost refer to anything.

Although pronouns can be personal, objective, possessive, indefinite, relative, intensive, demonstrative, interrogative, reflexive, and reciprocal, this musical extravaganza focuses on selected pronouns.

Program

Act 1: I
Act 2: You
Act 3: Me

Act 4: He

“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.” (John Muir, naturalist)

“If you want to see the true measure of a man, watch how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.” (J. K. Rowling, author)

“Happy is the man who finds a true friend, and far happier is he who finds that true friend in his wife.” (Franz Schubert, composer)

“Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.” (Maria Montessori, educator)

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” (Nelson Mandela, statesman)

“But he that dares not grasp the thorn Should never crave the rose.” (Anne Bronte, novelist)

“One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got into my pajamas I’ll never know.” (Groucho Marx, comedian)

Guidelines

Cautions

To prevent browsers crashing from loading too many videos, please 1) include the song title and artist in your text, and 2) paste the URL as part of your last line (not a new line). The latter will provide a link, thus not embed the actual video … but I don’t mind unembedding, so apologies are not necessary.

Announcement

Welcome to Act 4 of the latest musical by aFa Productions – Pronouns: The Musical.

This act was a more difficult challenge than the previous acts – but it’s still a worthwhile goal. The opening performer won five Grammy Awards, and the only artist to win four consecutive Grammy Awards for Best Female Country Vocal Performance Plus, the opener’s title contains two qualifying terms. Ladies and gentlemen, Singing He Thinks He’ll Keep Her, lets give a strong aFa Production welcome to Mary Chapin Carpenter.

Note: After clicking the video, “Video unavailable” will display … BUT, don’t panic … below that will say, “Watch this video on YouTube” … click it, and a new tab or window will open!

Welcome to the latest musical by aFa Productions – Pronouns: The Musical.

Although I’m not self-centered, Act 3 is about Me. We at aFa Productions appreciate legends agreeing to appear to open an act. Without checking the archives, this may be the first opening act appearance for this classic artist. The song was not only a hit, but Bill Gates paid to use the song to launch Windows 95. Let give a big aFa welcome to the Rolling Stones with Start Me Up.

Welcome to Opening Night of the latest musical by aFa Productions: Pronouns: The Musical.

Selecting the opening number for any act is difficult, but finding the starter for Act 1 on Opening Night requires extra scrutiny. In the spirit of our leader’s contrarian nature, we at aFa Productions think outside the box – and a Mummers band perfectly fits that criteria. Let’s give a rousing aFa welcome to the Polish American String Band and I’m Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover.

 

Act 2 – You – Next Saturday @ 1:00 am (Eastern US)
