Hearing:: "Marvin at the Psychiatrist"- March of the Falsettos
So tomorrow, we have auditions for Seussical the Musical at my high school. I really wasn't nervous at all (I swear!), until 2nd period today, when I started thinking about it and got REALLY nervous about... I really don't know what. The anxiousness has subsided somewhat, but I'm still kind of freaked out about it. I guess I just feel really unprepared. I'm not sure why-- I've had my song since last week (Only in New York from Thoroughly Modern Millie), and I've been practicing it every day. I think I'm just sort of afraid because I know I'm not right for the parts I'm trying out for.
I'm auditioning for Mayzie, or the Sour Kangaroo (if you know the show). I can sing both the parts perfectly well, and I'm sure I can act them, but... I just know that other some other people would be better at them. You can be the most talented person in the world, but if there's someone that's better than you are, it doesn't matter-- they're going to pick the more talented person.
I'm terrified that I'm going to regret doing the show if I get a really small part, not because the part is small, but because I turned down another show offer to do it. My director from Blithe Spirit asked me to be in Romeo and Julian (which is, obviously, a homosexual version of Romeo and Juliet). I really wanted to do it, but I didn't want to go back to getting home from school/rehearsals at 10:00 every day, so I knew I couldn't do both. And I had to choose, so I chose the one where I figured most of my friends would be. But then, I found out that Tyler, one of my really good friends, is going to be in R&J, and god, it would be fun to do another show with him. And I was guaranteed a part in that show... but I turned it down. I just really hope I don't regret it...
Well, I think I'll do well tomorrow; other than the problem of the full day of school before my audition? I think I'll do well.
... I hope.
