Almost a year ago, I had the time of my life doing Cincinnati Music Theatre's production of CHESS. It was the first show I had done in over 15 years. Shortly after, I did Mariemont Player's production of Honk! as a lead role of "the Cat." But, work heated up and in the winter, I lost my dad and Marita (Mom in my German Host family.) The spring was complicated.
But now that Jason and I are moved and things have stabilized with our household, I decided to audition for Follies, a production to be done by Cincinnati Music Theatre.
Today was my second "Call back" audition and I had high hopes.
I'm my worst critic: I know that I blew the "soft step dancing," as, well, crappy; I don't know how to do this! My acting was in line and I thought my singing was pretty good.
By design, the cast is top heavy with older actors (preferably to act 55 years and up.) There are very few roles for the younger actors (preferably to act 25 to 35 years.)
I'm aware that, after a brief conference, the director, producers, musical director, etc chose people to continue to read for the "younger parts." They did not invite me to do any additional reading.
Oh, well. I tried and I learned. I'll improve.
