And she's back! Yep, I think I may have found my muse again, or possible just something (mildly) interesting to write about.
I had Panto auditions today! *pause for dramatic effect* And yes I do pause when I think about them. I was in two minds as to whether turn up or not, especially after I heard that singing was going to be a big part of the audition. But then I thought to myself 'screw it, I'll go and see what happens'. So I went and I'm glad-ish. I was just so nervous that I had to look at my lines when doing my speech (although I knew it) and then I had to sing which is not something that I am comfortable with in front of people, when I'm sober. The first line of the song that I sang goes: What would you do if I sang out of tune would you stand up and walk out on me? Thankfully they didn't! So once that was done I could relax a bit, whilst we waited for the choreographer to turn up and teach us a couple of steps. It was not a pretty sight! We practised this short (but difficult for untrained dancers) routine twice and then had to do it in front of the panel. I got muddled in it... so I'm not holding my breath for a call-back.
The male:female ratio was unbalanced as always, and the majority of the girls were decked out in jazz shoes and dance wear, giving me the impression that dancing and walking are equally easy for them. Maybe I should have carried on with the jazz lessons when I was 9...
edit: As expected I wasn't selected as cast. No worries there. Ooh, and can I point out my Johari Window on the right-hand side of this blog - you can fill it in :)
