Good Morning Ladies and Gentlemen~
PCPA offered me the Beauty and the Beast Summer remount with the following roles:
On-Stage – Villager/Cheese grater
Swing – villagers and napkins
I asked for more money, after, we met in the middle. Beauty and the Beast opens June 14 and plays til July 15 in Solvang and IF you go, you WILL see me in one track or another.
However to my slight disappointment -that was all they offered me. No Shakespeare (but Im’ TOTALLY cool with that) no Sondheim (kinda fleh about it) and no Dames at Sea (quite disppointed) when I asked if Dames at Sea had been cast I was told that no first year students were being cast in it because rehearsals start before school starts. Which really means they don’t to have to pay us. This particular year (the fist year class, my class) we have many people quite capable of being excellent ensemble tap members to Dames at Sea and they didn’t cast us. In my opinion it is their loss.
My midsemester evaluation is this sunday March 12 @ 10:20. There the Conservatory director will tell me what my teachers think of my work and where I need to improv – no, I’m not nervous but I’m ready to comment if I get any crap about Alexander Technique – I hate that class. And perhaps one day I’ll write a whole shpiel on it, but today is not that day.
Rehearsals for “Oliver!” have begun. I’m a Swing again, this time for only 3 girls. Some have solo lines in songs that I will need to learn, one is an alto part the other a soprano – say a prayer for me.
I need to eat
