Ok, so, I’ve been to the read thru and I didn’t mishear on the phone in the jiffy lube, I will in fact, be playing the part of “Mae” in the Not So Common Player’s summer production of “The Pajama Game.” *Bounce.* It’s kind of par for my course as roles go… small person, big mouth, kinda crazy. No song really, to speak of tho… *Shrigs.* She’s got about 8 notes of echoing Prez in the “Her Is” Reprise, but I do have a goodly handful of lines, and should definitly be able to work with the part.
I do however need to get a FOLDING chair. Toting the plastic stacking chair from our balcony back and forth to rehearsal (since it’s not really my chair, it’s my roomate Rachel’s chair) is going to be a pain if tonight was any indication.
I got a call at the Jiffy Lube… *Grin.* I got cast. Small role… but the one I was aiming for, (having seen the show when Lydia did it at her school a few years ago.) I was on the phone for like… 3 minutes with them, and I haven’t gotten any e-mail… so I’m reluctant to give more details than that, since I’m starting to doubt the phone call even happened… I don’t want to jynx anything… I’ll specify after the read-thru next Wendsday.
I really need to learn to prepare for Auditions. I’m never freaking prepared… I’m actually more nervous this time because I do have sheet music, which I’ve never heard the accompaniment for. I’d rather do it acapella… or wish I knew someone who could play the freaking piano. Not that it matters because Jake’s Fake book seems to have bizzaro musical markings that I think might be guitar tabs. I also suck at picking music. I never feel like I need voice lessons during a show… but I always wish I had a vocal instructor to go over audition music with.
