The “cover myself in it” poll is now closed.
Sorry I couldn’t keep it up longer. Lynda (classmate) and I are going to have our own mini smear party on tuesday and cover ourselves in tapioca (sp?? terrible) pudding. Mud DID win with the most votes but politics are politics, and we’re doing the pudding. Thank you SO much for your advice, your 2 cents, your opinions etc. I look forward to always being able to post Polls here and get great and honest responses.
Feedback from Audition
Thus Far I’ve spoken with 3 of the faculty members and the Conservatory Director about my audition almost 2 weeks ago. We’ve been encouraged to get as much feedback from everyone we were auditioning for. The following are some highlights from those feedback sessions:
– Great voice, good sound – not sure if the cut from the song best suits you as an audition piece. It doesn’t show you off enough
– Great emotional connection to the character in your monologue.
– I’d say go with sleeves ( I wore a blue tanktop)
– Think of what you auditioning for, time period wise, and part wise,- most girl parts where skirts, – perhaps wear a skirt (I was in black slacks)
– remember your audition is from the moment you walk out til the moment they can’t see you; smile and be poised the entire time
– Its always difficult to watch actors do a monologue about wanting to be or not be an actor because the line of reality becomes thin, but your portrayal of a “real” person went well because you did not get over-emotional. You did what any “real” person would have done when they get upset, and that’s good acting.
– open your heart to the audience
– don’t trail off at the end of your sentences but be careful with inflection.
Each person honest and helpful and encouraging.
I spoke to Mark Booher (conservatory director) about Beauty and the Beast a bit and he was glad I was excited to take on all the challenges and responsiblities as and Understudy and Swing. Hhe just said that I had a good audition, did great a call backs, Michael (Jenkinson) will be great to work with, “Swings” are the HARDEST jobs but we trust you can do it. . . I thought that was cool.
I will be moving to Santa Maria to live at my sisters condo a mile and half from school. My mom thinks this is the best thing and everything will be great but I keep thinking about david and kaza and my mom doesn’t seem to understand its like i’m totally screwin them over. She says they’ll be fine – like her words are uber helpful if she just says them. I know that kaza understands this is the best thing for me to do right now, but I know I’m disappointing her as a friend and roomah. At first I didn’t think twice about finding someone to cover my part of the lease because I know they don’t want to live with anyone else – the choice was them alone or the three of us (originally). So I’ve been pondering can they live here alone? or will they have to move? Then I was asked to just do some research and see if there is someone I could find to take it over even if for just a bit. But they don’t want to live with a stranger and all my friends have homes it seems with their spouses none the less, or have roomates in a house already ro quite frankly don’t even live around here. So I’m just gonna keep pondering and trying to come up with ideas and such and start moving a few of my random things into my sisters storage unit we have. I won’t be taking all my “stuff” i’ll leave some thing I think they’ll need to use or want to keep using that I won’t need in my room at my sisters condo. I really hope they don’t have to move because that’s just such a pain in the ass and they really don’t have time to do that right now.
As for STGA
. I still sport, Mondays only and soon it will probably be every other monday but I would like to hold on to it so I can work on breaks and next summer. Matt (manager) has been very helpful and cool about all this. AND I would like to hereby announce that it is entirely allright if ANYONE wants to go to the green aprong while I’m sporting. But its not social time for me so please don’t expect me to be able to just stop what i’m doing and sit with you, or come around the counter and hug you and what not – its still my place of “work” if you will. But come one come all if you want or must for your green apron beverages and or food items and merchandise whilst i’m sporting. “thank you, have a great day.”
someone called me last night and i missed the call, then i called him back and said “hi, call me and sing to me – bye!” and later when he called and I answered he said he was gonna sing on my voicemail and when I asked him what he was going to sing, he started to sing a part from “the way you look tonight” now I know he’s my friend and I DO adore him, I DO think he’s fantastic I DO think he’s talented, I DO want to have this great friendship we have right now that is solely based on phone conversations – I do I do I do I do I do (little abba for ya?) And currently I’m guessing Mandy and Loke know who i’m talking about. thanks.
I think I need a nap right now, here I go.
