Audition Talk


So, auditions went really well last night. I wrote on the audition sheet that I would only accept a lead role. I am such a diva. :-P I seriously don't know if I want to do it anymore. I loved auditioning... but it would suck so much of my time away... even if I am just taking 16 credits and even if one of them would actually be the musical.

Anyway, I got there right at 7 and people were filling out audition forms. It ended up I forgot to put a few things on there. If I had a working printer, I would have printed out my resume... But I am silly, so I didn't think to do it at work. Anyway, the director is very cool. He played Joseph in the first production of it in the U.S.! I told him I honored to have audtioned for him. I sang my song from South Pacific A Capella... I think that made a good impression. It made it easier for me to start over when he asked me to sing "Less pretty and more showy". :-P Which I did. I thought I took direction quite well. I was kind of hoping he would do the same sort of directing when we were reading the monologues, but he didn't. I thought everyone did a great job with the monologues.... even the people who were some-what hesitant showed their potential, so that was a good thing. Dancing was fun. I miss doing that sort of thing, so it's a good thing I have Tap class today. Learning a routine is always cool... the only confusing thing was that it was very similar to the Hot Lunch Jam dance we did in Fame, so even though I knew what Thomas(choreographer) wanted us to do, my body was fighting me to do what it knew. :-P It was a very strange sensation. I tried my best to learn the moves as well as I could and then have fun messing up. Smiling. :-D :-D And consiously using my arms. That's something I definitely want to work on in Tap class... it's something I've lost since doing No, No, Nanette.
In general, I think it was obvious that Brittany's done auditions before... and got the parts. :-P She's got wonderful "musical theatre" body movements and stage personality. I also think that she over shadowed a lot of people who were not as confident or prepared, but who could reach the same level given the chance, so I just hope that the director sees that. Also, I'm glad that he was forward about body casting. I really hate when they do it, but they don't tell you. He actually lined us up and looked at us, under the guise that they were looking for people to play twins... but you know they were looking at other contrasting body types.

All in all, I had an enjoyable time. :-) And it would be lovely to get Domina or Pseudelous, but only time will tell. I should have put my cell number on the audition form... oh well.

Sounds like a cool experience. 8-}
Do you happen to know when the show is going to be yet?
...I was just thinking, how awful would it be if someone was paired up with someone that they didn't like or thought was funny looking to play twins? could be trouble. 8-p
