I got four auditions in yesterday, all of which, I think, went well. One was an Equity call, and the pianist was… not the best. That said, I still sang well, but it was frustrating because it felt like they were straight-up not paying attention to me at all.
Anyway, I got in a total of 11 (or 12 maybe?) auditions last week, so if feels good to be back in the swing of things. I’m hoping to get at least four again today, if not break the record and hit 5. I’m signed in for a bunch, but all but two of them are Equity calls, so it’s just a matter of seeing who has time to see non union and if the timing of everything works out.
What’s crazy is that I got out and about an hour earlier than I normally do today, and still I’m number 180 on one of the non-union calls and number 73 on the other. I went to bed early last night because I was tired, and when I woke up before my alarm I decided to just get up and get out. Thank God I did, otherwise who knows what number I’d be for those.
I’m trying to get everything in that I can right now for two reasons: 1) summer seasons are going to be starting soon and casting will be winding down and 2) I’m going away (to The Republic of Georgia!) for two weeks in the beginning of May, in addition to four five days out of town first with Matthew for our anniversary (Pittsburgh… just so we can be together) and the Minnesota/Iowa with Julie and Kelly so we can road trip to the RENT 20th anniversary tour. I’m going to miss several weeks of auditions, so I’m trying to get as many in as I can now.
In addition to all that, it’s of course Holy Week, so I’m super busy at the Cathedral. That said, I’m going to have to skip things if the timing doesn’t work out with auditions. Today I’m likely going to miss Chrism mass, because Weathervane Theatre (the company in NH that is thinking about bringing me on as an intern for the summer) has an ECC today at 4pm (which I’m number 6 on the list for!) and Chrism mass starts around 3:45. I need to be seen at that call (they didn’t see any non-equity at the EPA yesterday) so that’s that. I’m going to go by at the end of the women’s call to see if they’ll hear any men, but it’s a brief call so I find that unlikely.
In any case, I’m busy, I’m tired, and I’m happy.
