Today starts with another audition!
I'm at the audition now! I went into the non union section to fix my packet (headshot and resume stapled together and trim resume to fit picture) and I learned something. Listening to others conversation has its benefits. There is an audition tomorrow that I hadnt considered before because I have a job interview and Dr appointment. Screw it, I'm coming! It's a rare show, it has a mostly all black cast. I don't say this because I'm racist (because I'm so not) but I won't have to worry about not being "right for the part". Let's face it, I'm not that young , or slim, or graceful which a lot of shows are asking for. I won't be cast as Cinderella, or Tinkerbell but a show that is casting for singers of none descript size, I can do! I also figured that since I'm here will audition again for Soul Doctor.
I'm wearing a different hair style but same dress but a slight alteration. ( I added a drape) The guy (Justin) I spoke to earlier said he reauditioned for a show before and it got him in. After I finished talking to them I went to the other side of the area to sign up for the Equity Candidate list. What do ya know?! I got called into the next group right away! As soon as I walked in she said "welcome back Burgandy". Great, she remembered. :-/ I picked a much different song this time. "I Believe that Chirdren are the Future " by Whitney Houston. He played the starting chord and yet again I couldn't hear it! I sung under it. It toke me a phrase but I corrected it. When I fixed it she nodded and smiled. I also notice that she wrote something down on her yellow notepad. I was ashamed inside but I kept singing. The shame I felt made me nervous so I almosy forgot to stop singing. I went 2 words over the alloted 32 bars and stopped right as she held out both hands for me to break. lol Smh I feel like crap. I thanked her, got my music and got out of there. Funny thing is, I still have to auditions for Riverside. I went to their table to sign up and saw that I'm number 41. Ugh. They are taking the last Equity members before they go to lunch. I will be here a while. At least I don't have plans till later this evening.
