Auditions

I have been busy and not just ignoring the posting of entries. The past two nights I was reading for a part in a local production of the Odd Couple. I got a role (not Oscar or Felix but as they say there are no small roles) however due to the rehearsal schedule and my wife's work schedule I have had to turn it down.
It is a bit disappointing since I have never been in a full play before and was looking forward to it. I have done a lot of showcases when I was living in New York (almost all with more lines than this role had) but have never done a real full play. I almost did this same play in college when I read for Felix but was cast as Oscar but other things got in the way.
Ah well, there will be other plays and I have my hands full with work and looking for a new car.

Not this time

Well I didn't get a callback.
Back to the drawing board.
I think the reason might have been because I was slightly too old for the part.
That is depressing.
My mom thinks I might be too old for the job market.
About the only thing I am not too old for is to win the Lottery.
This week would be nice.

Audition - Part 2

Still don't know if I am going to get the part or not. The director says he can't make up his mind but will call the people tomorrow.
Auditions are very different from acting. When doing the auditions it is generally ok to go over the top a bit to show what you can do. I am not very good at over the top.
I have to give him credit though for being fair. Everyone who showed up got to read several times.
Well we will see what happens.

Auditions

If you read Meryl's blog during blogathon you would have seen a guest post by me pretty early in the morning. I will post it here sometime in the future.
The post was about my life or at least part of it and some of the choices I made along the way to get to where I am today.
Part of it was about my love of acting and how if I really could choose anything that is what I want to be doing.
I noticed not too long ago that there was a local playhouse in the area that put on shows pretty regularly and had open auditions.
I decided to go to one of those auditions tonight. I won't know how I did until tomorrow when we all have to go back but I am glad I went. Wish me luck.
