Here I post my discoveries, epiphanies and lessons learned during my ongoing pursuit of the art of performance, on stage, film, street, park, etc.

shut up and bring it :)

Two weeks ago I went to auditions for a musical I would love to be a part of.
During the hour long drive down to the auditions I tried hard not to think of how this commute was gonna work out if I were to be cast.  Since the audition process was being held in a dance room with everyone getting to hear everyone else, once the girl before me finished her singing, she was asked how she was gonna make it out every day/other day to the rehearsal from where she was staying ... good 2 hours away from the rehearsals. Her reply was, she had done another show in the area before this.  She was a mother, had a baby a few years ago, which kept her busy, finally she had the support to do what she loves and follow her passion, and she confidently told them to not worry about the commute, she would be there on time if not early.  After hearing this, I simply shut my head up with its curious wonderings of how this and how that.  In this business you gotta say 'yes' take the jobs you get and make it work, and if you are around people who work harder than you, you learn a lot. When you see how motivated they are to do what they love, your own obstacles are put into perspective. I got cast and can't wait to bring it!!
