drew (acting teacher, in charge of blog here) says to keep posting especially when we are very busy. well, that would be now!
let me briefly write about my weekend. wait… di i even write about getting the part? that part, in the play next semester (Stop Kiss)? I got it!!! I am so happy, excited and sooo nervous. It is such a big deal to me. This is exactly what I need in my process right now. I am so happy the director saw something in me and that my department has faith in me… I can’t wait. The first read is tomorrow.
But this weekend… Friday night i opened a show at tornspace theatre called quills. saturday morning i had a tech rehearsal for a fatal game, which is a play written and directed by chris gannon, a student here. we performed it downtown at the smith theatre in connection with a highschool playwrighting competition. in the afternoon i had an audition at the irish classical theatre, a professional (paying!) theatre downtown. I GOT CALLED BACK FOR TWO THINGS! yeah!! then I had to ride my bike back over to the east side and do a show at night. sunday afternoon we performed a fatal game, went to get coffee with my uncle and his girlfriend, then rode back to the theatre and did quills (with the artvoice reviewer there). in between all of this i was trying to figure out issues with this guy i’ve been seeing the past ten months…oh AND studying for finals. I feel so alive!
Call me a workaholic but i love this! I am so happy… it’s such a good feeling to have work lined up. it will make relaxing after this semester so much more rewarding, knowing i am resting to go back for more. i have been bitten and infected with the theatre bug and i am addicted to it!
people may think i am too happy or bragging about things but that is really not my purpose. it’s just so wonderful. for someone who really knows what sad is, happy is such an exciting and new territory. i want to savor it becuase i know bad times are probably around the bend.
well, off to studying now…!
