Fortunately, in the midst of all of this binge-watching and Panera Bread baguette, there's some good news – I just got cast in a musical! I've got a decently large part and I have a whole song to myself. I'm playing a New York seductress who falls for a cowboy while visiting Nevada. I know, I know, I was definitely typecast, but that aside, I'm pretty damn excited.
The cast ranges in age from 13 to 23. I'm hoping to secure my place as the excitable, loudmouthed aunt of the bunch quickly enough to make myself seem charming rather than overbearing. The majority of the chorus parts were given to younger high schoolers, and I want to prove to them that college doesn't make you a totally lifeless, soul-sucking wet noodle of a human. (Also, I want them to like me. But the role model thing is most important. I think.)
I've been too wrapped up in the audition process to absorb much else. I'll let you know when the summer actually starts to kick into gear.
(Also, if you're in Midland come August, check out the show!)
