Well, that was a bit of a surprise. After the way my auditions went for a couple of fall classes (alternate for 1, didn't get into the one I wrote about - no surprises), I had no hopes for Tuesday's audition for the fall season. I wasn't too sanguine about how I did, partly because I tried to change a few things based on last week's feedback, partly because I was still a bit bummed to realize that I've been doing it all wrong all these years, and partly because I was exhausted after the recent spate of bad news.
Imagine my surprise this morning when I checked my email to find one telling me I was called back for Antigone! They called back 45 people, which might be everyone who auditioned (shades of last semester's season auditions), but given that they've announced that they plan to cast 20, including the Greek chorus, I suppose that number makes sense. I've already printed my "sides" (side = excerpt from the play), which I'll start looking at today or tomorrow.
Callbacks are Saturday morning, and finish up right around the time my partner & I have our slot the light lab to work on our latest lighting design project. That means I'll be in the building from 10 till 5, unless we finish our project early (not likely!). As I told the Chief as I was leaving for class this morning, guess I'll just pack for the day.
