Not to quote Toby Keith, but… I today am feeling glum. Back-to-Back shows I have auditioned for and not been cast. 🙁 Joseph and now Little Shop.
I am sure it will be a great show I was just so excited (with the hope) to be a part of it. I tried out for the voice of the plant and, well, someone else tried out who was better — that’s theatre!
I am just a bit down realizing that never before Joseph had I auditioned for a musical and not made the cut and now… It is 2-in-a-row and I have to face the facts — I AIN’T AS GOOD AS I ONCE WAS. Ahh, growing older… 🙁 In fact, the last musical I auditioned for and was cast in was Grease a FEW YEARS ago! Ugh!
Anyway, some great people auditioned and made Little Shop — some of our new friends from Hicksville auditioned and really did outstanding! AND THEY MADE IT!!! 🙂
You can see the complete Little Shop cast list here.
It is a real sad realization that my musical theatre “career” has definately passed it’s prime and very well might be over (eneded with Grease! — ugh!).
Oh well. I wish I had appreciated my God given talents more when I still had them; I was never very confident. It is ironic that I was never very satisfied with my singing in the past and now I only wish I could have my past talent back — eech!!!
Acting wise I have lost a few steps too — I thought my reading for the voice of Audrey II went really well; though I know I stunk up the place with my “singing” of Love Changes Everything. Ugh… This stinks!
