Update

Just realized that I forgot to fill you in on the agent call, and what has been happening in the last week. The good news is that I have been really busy- the bad news is that it keeps me from writing!

I had a great meeting with the agency. I met with the director of the New York office, and afterward he said that he and his partner would need to go over my materials together to make sure that they both were on the same page about me. They said they would be in touch this week with information about the next step. It was a very positive meeting. I'll let you know what happens.

Last week I was called by Playwrights Horizons to come in for a pre-read for the workshop production of the new musical, "Saved!" which is an adaptation of the film that starred Mandy Moore. I am audition for the Mandy Moore character, Hilary Faye. I've been seen by their casting associate and casting assistant at auditions, but the lead casting director has never seen my work. So, this pre-read is an opportunity to show them what I am all about before they bring me in for the producers. I may actually be too old for this role, depending on the age of the other cast members (the show is set in a high school). But I read much younger on stage, especially when I turn on my inner naive and energetic goofball! For the audition, I am preparing sides from the show, and I am singing, "Lost In Your Eyes" by Debbie Gibson. They asked for a Pop or Rock song, and since the musical is about kids at a Christian high school, I thought that singing a "bubble gum" pop song with "salvation" and "heaven" references would be a good match. I'll keep you posted on the outcome of this as well.

Other than that, I have other general auditions schedule the rest of this week and through next month. But I am taking two little vacations in September, so I won't really be around much to do auditioning. Hopefully one of these things will come through and I will have the chance for more work. But right now, I am enjoying the last days of summer in New York and am focusing on my coaching business.

Hey, if you have any questions about these or any other auditions, feel free to ask. Just leave a comment!

  1. Saved (The movie) was wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong. Which made it pretty darn right. I hope the musical lives up to the wrongness.
