Entering Stage Left

Tonight is the first audition night. I have the barest trace of excitement for it. The latest paper article states the play needs 12 men and 11 women. That's a huge cast for a small community theatre play (a musical could get that many people easier). Since I don't know the play nor do I have any particular character to focus on, all I can do is go in and read the text aloud as best I can. This is a distinction from the Romeo & Juliet audition where I studied the play and practiced delivery. The articles describes the play as similar to the original planned production, and I do hope I get the chance to participate in a murder trial. This is the closest I'll get to being on Law and Order: SVU. I have my updated callsheet ready to hand to the director tonight.

Your Sis and I have postponed pre-breakfast gym visits for the time being. She needs to get acclimated to the school pace again, and she's dragging as it is when she gets home. I, on the other hand, have to stay up longer at night so I don't wake up too early in the morning. Her new batch of kids took much easier to the assignment of dissecting song lyrics, although one tried to pass off Pink Floyd verses as commentary on American foreign policy.

Picture of the Day
That's, um, an interesting ad there.
