I hope you pronounced that “thea-tah.” Kailey and I love saying it like that.
I alluded to something Monday’s post…
I haven’t performed since high school, with exception of the national anthem at a few football, soccer, and field hockey games in college. I planned to minor in theatre in college, but once I arrived, realized there was no way I could have the time for a theatre minor and play field hockey. Since I was signed to play field hockey, I didn’t really have any choice but to let go of the theatre side of myself for a while.
I have been saying for years that I miss performing more than anything. And lucky for me, an opportunity arose for me to audition for a local summer production of Gypsy.
I sang a few bars from my most favorite show of all time, The Last Five Years (for all you theatre nerds out there who would recognize the song, I sang I Can Do Better Than That.)
I got the call for callbacks the next day, and was psyched to be told I was in the running for the roles of Louise and June.
Non-talented sister turned burlesque stripper? Or frustrated child star?
I was at the theatre until 11 p.m. last night for callbacks, and I’m now playing the waiting game.
But when I do get the phone call, I’m not above doing this around work.
And then I’d be all,
And if I don’t get the part, I’ll just resort to the following.
