I Hate Long Waits

WOW!  This has to rank amongst the quickest audition results I have ever gotten.  Monday morning at 10AM (mere hours after I auditioned), I got a phone call from the assistant director of You Have the Right to Remain Dead and was asked if I would like to accept the coveted, intrigal part of Harnell Chesterton.  I’m not sure how much he’s involved but from what I read, he has a LOT to say and a hilarious bit.  Looks like yet another great role!

Unlike another show I know that has been cast for a month and a half and has less than 8 weeks to curtain, rehearsals for this begin next Monday with a read-through.  The costume matron (the same as for Meet Me in St. Louis) wants to get started immediately with her excellent ideas.  If anyone saw MMiSL, you surely remember the wonderful costumes created/hunted down for that show… including the menagerie of hats worn by Grandpa Prophater.   I can’t wait to be back onstage in general but to be back on the Huber stage will be a treat!

AHHHH… show dates are October 9-11 with a matinee and evening show on Saturday.  So those of you cast in Little Shop have no excuse for not seeing it.

  1. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! You’ll have so much fun! I heard that scripts came in today for LSOH…..now we’ll see if we will start soon……she must have a LOT of faith in our abilities, that’s all I gotta say….lol

  2. Thanks everyone! J, I wouldn’t be a traitor if I were cast more often here. I love to be involved elsewhere for productions but when a chance opens up to be ON stage… anywhere… well. PLUS, two of the Village Players have switched sides as well… so it’s only fair that a WCCTer return the favor.

    thank goodness, mare! Maybe we will have a read-through the same night 🙂

  3. I learned that our first read through is Sunday….the same day I signed up for overtime…..eh, I know the show well enough, I’m not too worried about a read through. There’s a lot more to be concerned about at this point and time…. 😉

    Again, Congrats! I hope you enjoy this experience as much as you did the last time!!!

  4. If the production is anything like the audition then it will be a hoot and a half! Hope you have fun with your show… some fun people there!
