or: AUDITION PREP 2013!!!!!
As I hinted in my last post, I’ve been giving a lot of thought to the fact that I’ve taken such a long hiatus from performing. Especially over this summer, I’ve been wondering why I’ve let that fall by the wayside. I’ve had my reasons – being in school and working full-time does leave me little time to audition and even less time to commit to a rehearsal schedule.
But even before I went back to school, I’d been away from performing for quite some time. As much as I liked to think that I committed to Pursuing My Dream…did I? I’ve been wondering a lot about that, lately.
In any case, since I’m currently out of a job (thanks, public school system!) I’ve had even more time to think about this lately – and more time to look for and contemplate auditions. I’ve found a couple that look especially promising and I’ve talked to enough people about them now that I feel as though I’ve absolutely committed to going to them. (It’s amazing what making yourself accountable can do, right?)
But let me get to the point: I haven’t been to an audition in over a YEAR. I feel as though I have a TON of preparing to do!
- pick out my audition songs
- make sure my sheet music is marked appropriately!
- get out my audition clothes and dancin’ shoes
- update my resume!
- …I definitely don’t have time to get new headshots done even though my old ones are so out of date
- probably a ton of other stuff I’m not thinking of…
So I’ll be updating about that as I get prepared! (One of these auditions is only A WEEK AWAY, ahh!)
