Theatre Happiness

I tried out for The Taming of the Shrew last weekend. The audition was quick, painless, and satisfying. Plus, it was nice to catch up with the director, who I hadn't seen since last summer (my, how time flies!). Last night, the phone rang. I've been given the role of Bianca, spoiled younger sister of Kate, the shrew. :) I'm much more excited about this than this post lets on.

Wednesday was audition night for The Sound of Music. I've done two musicals with this company (The Music Man and Li'l Abner) and have really enjoyed both. For this show, I'm aiming high and auditioning for Maria and the Baroness (who sings two delightful songs in the show which were sadly cut from the movie version). Those auditions were.... not so painless and not remotely quick. Everyone says I did really well, but I felt I could have done better. I did, however, manage to keep my energy level deceptively high - inwardly, I just wanted to collapse. The callback list will be posted on Tuesday, so... pray for me. :)


  1. CONGRATULATIONS ON GETTING BIANCA!!!! That is amazing and soooo awesome and you deserve it! I wish I could be out there to see you! (I adore that show)

  2. Thank you! :) I haven't actually read the whole thing yet, so I'm looking forward to getting to know it this summer.

  3. YAY!!! Go 'Laney!!! That's awesome!
