Sorry I didn’t blog last Thursday, I was in a car for 6 hours to go to my grandparents house in Greensburg, PA. Then, as we all did, I stuffed myself with turkey and mashed potatoes. Yummy.
Anyways, I have a little story to tell, following the steps of my mom. Welcome to child theater!! (So sorry if you are already bored). SOOOO…. DRUM ROLL PLEASE….. We are doing The Drowsy Chaperone at my school!!! I know, most of you are going, HUH?? What is that? It is that show, you know, that used to be on Broadway? Ok never mind… So, for those of you not asleep, I GOT A MAIN PART IN IT!!!!
Watch out Broadway, here I come!! (HAHAHA kidding) My mother just laughed out loud.
Moving on! So, ya, I’m the main character’s mother, who is sorta… kinda… crazy. PERFECT ROLE I KNOW!!
Ever since I knew we were doing it at my school, I have wanted to be this role, Mrs. Tottendale (the crazy mother). So I audition and get a call back. The callbacks are from 3 to 5 and around 4:45, I was still waiting to be called. FINALLY, Ms.Merkel (my director) calls me up and gives me the *sides (*the lines from a scene that we use for the audition) and the song for Mrs.Tottendale. As I was going over my lines and such, Ms.Merkel calls me up and says, “OK, so we don’t have enough time to get you in the audition room, but I didn’t want you to leave disappointed because you didn’t get called in, but just so you know, I picked this musical because I knew you could to the part. So, you’re Mrs.Tottendale, OKAY?”
Is that ok?
IS THAT OK
My first part in 3 years?
Yup, it’s ok.
But then she said this: “Ok, you can’t tell anyone till we put up the list, ok? That’s in, 2 weeks. See you tomorrow!” OMG. I couldn’t tell any of my friends for 2 weeks?
Okay. So I didn’t tell.
And then I could.
And now I told you.
Hope you liked my story!
