Call Backs and Casting

It is a happy day indeed!
I recently auditioned for the spring show at USM, "Inook and the Sun" directed by Dr. Assunta Kent. The results involve the following story:

The audition went well. I left happy and feeling fairly confident.
The next night I was sticking around the lobby waiting for callbacks to be posted. Low and behold I got called in to read a part. I was surprised because I wasn't there to audition, but, gladly I went in, read, danced a bit, and left.
The next day I got an official call back. I was very excited by this point and my confidence level was getting higher. The callbacks took nearly four hours. Everyone left tired and cranky, hoping that they would get a part.
Today I went to school to check the results and....I'm in!!
I got the part I wanted: The Spirit of the Dream. That is the one that I felt mostly comfortable with when cold reading. She's an omniscient spirit who's coming foreshadows Inook's father's death. It's pretty intense, I must say.
It's going to be a good week, guys: ACTF and getting in a show. Ah! I'm so excited. I'll post another blog next week when I'm at ACTF and such.

A New Semester Begins!

Top o' the semester to you all!
Now this is going to be a ridiculously busy spring, I'm telling you! I'm taking 18 credits; plus I have several auditions coming up and other projects on top of those. I'm putting myself on a plan to graduate early and so far it's working out nicely. HOPEFULLY it all will work out in my favor. I have seven classes that I picked out for Summer Session already and I have the next year planned out...hopefully it will work the way I plan.
Now, I'm telling you all this because it means that I won't have a lot of time to concentrate on things such as blogging as much as I'd like to.
I shall keep you informed, however if I'm involved in shows and progress on my projects.
To all my readers have a happy semester and more updates will come soon.
