Now that internship is over. (Still can’t believe that) AUDITIONS BEGIN. Finally. But really. FINALLY. And it’s amazing that it’s still summer stock season so auditions are in full swing! I love auditioning. LOVE it. If I could get paid just to audition for a living. I would do it hands down. I love the rush of nerves and excitement, meeting new people, showcasing material that I love, getting to perform a different character every day-sometimes twice a day. I got to go to three auditions this week. If I could, I would go to one every day but you can only go to as many that are happening. #nonequity

I went to the Elf Dancer call, Elf Singer call and The Sound of Music call. Some were better than others, but for my first week as a professional actress I’d say it was a success! Woohoo!

I also got to take a dance class with the Otterbein Alumni group “Alumni That Dance Together, Book Together”. It was so much FUN! The amazing, lovely and gorgeous Corinne Munsch taught us a spunky little ditty. It was so good to dance again. It had been a little since I danced, so it felt good to move again! Very different than sitting in an office chair for 8 hours. Haha

But to cap off the week, Randy Adams gave the whole BFA class who is participating in showcase, tickets to see Come From Away. The show he is an executive producer of. The show was maybe the best thing I have ever seen. And I don’t ever say that. Like ever. This show is the kind of theatre I hope to be doing when I’m older. It was inspiring and moving. A story that should be told and shared. Beautiful, simply beautiful. THANK YOU RANDY!

Onward and Upward folks….to more auditions. YAY!

At the alumni dance class, thanks Corinne!
