So, that "lovefest" audition. I got a very lovely response with a lot of positive feedback. I shared it with my voice teacher and with a friend (himself a voice teacher and performer). All of us were very impressed with how much feedback they gave me - not just "nice voice but not what we're looking for". And to think they did something like that for every single one of the people they didn't cast!
I also auditioned for a production of The Wedding Singer. I've auditioned for this company before and gotten nuttin'. I'm guessing it's because a) I can't belt (yet) and b) I'm over 50. Got the "thanks but no" call last night. Not a surprise. Not only did I go into it expecting not to be cast, but I crashed & burned on the dance audition. The chunk they tried to teach us was complicated and FAST! I remembered the beginning, the end, and the occasional scraps scattered thru the middle. "Good for my humility," as a college roommate of mine used to say.
Now I'm focusing on a sewing project, then it's back to hunting up auditions for fall shows.
