I have just returned from my semester auditions. It was the first time I’d had an actual audition since I auditioned for the MFA Program, it was my first grad school audition, it was my first UNCG audition, it was the first semester audition, and I was the first one to go.[horror story, horror story, horror story]
Right about then is when most women would’ve had a huge breakdown and cried and screamed and thrown their music. But I didn’t. I walked out of the building and drove home. And I didn’t shed a single tear. The only time I felt like I might cry was when I realized that I’m glad this happened because it means I need to stop singing for awhile. I dropped the words to my "Full Monty" audition song, too, so I’m thinking this probably is a sign. It’s time to set the singing on the shelf for awhile while I sort myself out.
Good news for me: I was cast as Mrs. Lovett in "Sweeney Todd", the first show of the fall semester.
