I just realized that I never told you what happened after my Phantom of the Opera auditions. (I did tell you that I auditioned, didn't I?) So, I auditioned and I sang "Show Me" from My Fair Lady. Given that this was my first time auditioning - ever - I think I did pretty well (the workshop helped), and no, I didn't get in. I'm not surprised, really, after all, this is one of the first times a college has ever done a show of Phantom. And I wasn't disappointed either, really. Now, having seen how many practices those poor people have, I know it's a good thing that I didn't make it it. Well, make it into the cast, anyhow.
So after that, I tried out for a different play and didn't get in that one either. (I went to see it tonight, and it was AWESOME!) I was a bit upset about that... but then I got an e-mail from the theater department asking for people to join the crew for Phantom. Needless to say, I jumped at the chance and ended up being the crew head for hair design! Yes, I get to design the hair-styles for The Phantom of the Opera, one of the first college performances ever.
The performances won't be for another couple of weeks still and I will be sure to let you know how it goes! Right now they've started full run throughs and I was able to sit in on part of it. It was their first time through the whole thing almost non stop, but from the looks of it, I think it will be absolutely marvelous.
