Breaking Legs in Eastern Ohio01.21.2011
This update is coming to you from a very different place than normal. IÂm spending the weekend in my roommate EmilyÂs hometown of New Concord, Ohio, which is about 2.5 hours east of Dayton. On any given weekend I guess it wouldnÂt be that strange to spend time in my roommateÂs hometown, but this weekend is different because I am accompanying her to her auditions for the Ohio Theatre Alliance. OTA is holding auditions and interviews for their summer and year-long positions. Emily had tech interviews earlier this afternoon, and as I type this she is auditioning for speaking and singing roles for summer productions. Break a leg, Em! ThatÂs theatre-speak for Âgood luck.Â Our other friend Grace is also auditioning and sheÂs warming up now. Break a leg also, Grace!
IÂm not auditioning because I wonÂt be available for very much of the summer because of my trip to France, but itÂs been an interesting adventure thus far anyway. The worst part about the whole process is the waiting around for the different interview and audition times. But, as long as Em and Grace donÂt get callbacks weÂll be done very soon and will be able to leave Muskingum College and just relax for the rest of the weekend.
Currently, IÂm sitting in one of the waiting rooms with a group of people who are going to audition at 6. I figured that I might as well post a blog while IÂm sitting here doing nothingÂ so here you go!
Also, completely unrelated but even more exciting, I learned how to do video blogs. So, instead of just saying IÂm going to do one IÂll actually be able to post them! Expect that within the next few days. And until then, break a leg in all your endeavors, everyone, and enjoy your weekend!
