Audition Video

Trying to make an audition video for a production of Into the Woods. I auditioned for this in person, but apparently they now have a new director and are holding auditions tomorrow. It has quickly become apparent that I hate how my singing voice sounds on camera. I desperately hope that it's better in real life, because otherwise I am never going to be cast again, in anything, ever. I'm debating between sending "Home" from Beauty and the Beast or "Part of Your World" from Little Mermaid. Bethany was helping me, and we tried multiple takes of "Far From the Home I Love," but it was an unmitigated disaster. I'm not a huge fan of that song anyway.

Guys get the best solos. I mean, there are some awesome solos for girls out there, but most of them are such showstopping, star-making songs that if you can't pull them off like you -are- Idina Menzel or Barbra Streisand, then you sound a lot worse than you are. It could also be a factor that I think guys are just nicer to listen to than girls.

Sigh. Back to the editing booth, I guess.

Bring on the Summer

I'm having a good day. C: I'm going to an audition for Wizard of Oz in Salt Lake on Friday, and even the prospect of being involved in a production again has me smiling. I've successfully memorized the song "Boston" by Augustana on the piano, and it's a beautiful day outside. Also, I had a huge lecture series/shouting debate/heated conversation all sorts of Harry Potter characters and plot elements with my little sisters and their friends. It has been too long since I have done that. Harry Potter will never die. Ah, it's a good day. C:

June 3

Guess who offered me a job? K-mart.

If I take this job, there will be no theatre or even the opportunity to audition for at least two months. Maybe that doesn't sound so long to you, but I've been craving it for weeks. Down in the Valley got over two months ago, and I need more of it. It's fine. I don't care. I'm just going to waste my summer in Cody with a job that I hate. Woohoo. Also, my cd player in my car has taken to refusing to eject cds correctly. For most of the way back from Cody it wouldn't eject Anastasia at all, and I was fairly certain that I was never going to be able to play a cd in it again. Until it randomly and completely without provocation decided to eject it.

It's days like this that I'd really like to have a boyfriend.

Song of the Day: "Santa Fe" from Newsies

My Feet Hurt

I walked up and down Main Street of Cody today. Twice. My feet are killing me. And would you like to know how many applications I got turned in out of the entire process? Three. That's right. Three. Yay achievement.

I don't want to work at K-mart. I mean, I will if I have to, but it's like the inferior version of Wal-mart. I have to go interview on Friday. I'd really like for one of the other places I've applied to call me before then. Working at K-mart just sounds like a blasty-blast of a summer job, doesn't it?

Bleh. I want an iPod.
