Oliver! - Ldy, the lemony, ligerish ducttaparian's Magic Treehouse of Lost Thoughts
A classy broad's life... with footnotes.
Woohoo! Opening night!

I've been sorta busy, and sorta not busy and kinda sick :/ I'm hoping it passes soon. I hate being sick on opening night!

Monday, I had an audition at our local state-run regional theatre. A REAL equity* audition. It was the first time I've ever had to do a prepared monologue!

It was great. I got the magic 15-minute loading zone parking spot DIRECTLY in front of the theatre, and although I was a few minutes early, they were ready for me. I popped into the ladies room first, and walked under a ladder three times for good measure.

Sometimes, we make our own luck, no?

I was nervous, but I made them laugh. You know, at places they were supposed to laugh. I was so pleased with my monologue selection, and am so happy it seemed to go over well. Hooray for the author, who sent me a complementary copy of the script the day after I enquired about it.

The entire audition took about two minutes.

I've no idea whether I'll be invited to read for anything this season, but it felt good to audition. It felt really good.

As for Oliver, well, it's is such a good show, with such a talented cast and crew. P & Z are coming tonight, along with Matt & Penny (friends of ours we rarely get to see). I hope I'm up for going out afterward! Heck, that's half the fun :)

OK, I'd better go iron one of my costume pieces, and pick up some flowers for the cast and crew (everybody deserves flowers on opening night!).

Later, gators!

* You don't techinically have to be equity to go to an equity principal audition. In fact, they like us non-equity actors, as we'll work for peanuts.
** I have nothing creative to say here!

I'm feeling all kinds of: sick tummy weirdnessy

Break a leg tonight! (But not seriously. Don't take those "break bones" greetings as literally as I do.) I know you guys'll be great! I'll be seeing you much later in your run when my show is over. *g*

And yay for good auditions! Call them today or tomorrow and ask about any upcoming auditions. There's something for Tuesday (although I think Tuesday is just for our cast. It does mean that there's a general audition very very soon though.)

Good luck! I also believe that we can make our own luck. Here is the thought most eloquently expressed by the sage Paramahansa Yogananda:
"Since you alone are responsible for your thoughts, only you can change them. You will want to change them when you realize that each thought creates according to its own nature. Remember that the law works at all times and that you are always demonstrating according to the kind of thoughts you habitually entertain. Therefore, start now to think only those thoughts that will bring you health and happiness."
