    audition I had a pretty good audition. I fumbled a few words and was shaking like a leaf. The director remembered me from the "Titanic" auditions and said he was glad I came back. We laughed about how it sank before we even got on board. I sang my song. The accompanist started a bit fast, I forgot one section and then forgot to breathe, but nothing out of the ordinary for audition nerves. I hope I emoted okay.

    After that I sang some scales for the musical director. He was extremely impressed with the strength of my voice and range. I thanked them and then almost walked out without my music just like in the "Titanic" auditions. I joked" I am always trying to leave my music here". The director said, "Yeah don't forget that, you may need it again."

    I thought that seemed encouraging as I sang a song by the character that I want to play. (Secret code for "You are my Lucy", I hope). The weird thing is that they did not mention the reading call backs to me. Both of my male friends were told to come back Monday. The only thing I can think is that they are calling back all of the men, but only some of the women. Women outnumbered the men 2:1. If I don't hear anything by Monday, I will email the director or producer. I think I did very well all in all, so I'm sure it must be that they want to discuss who they've seen and weed out the pack. Auditions tomorrow night run until 9pm so I am not sure if they will call after that or email.

    ARGH! This might drive me mad. I expected to know about callbacks before I walked out of there. I am going to take a nap. now. The adrenalin rush really takes it out of you.

    I'm glad the audition went well. I'm always impressed with people just being able to get up and sing. So much courage.

    Well, the nap was a bust. I am so wired I just lay there rehashing the audition. Damn Asperger brain. I am going to make dinner and then go see "Hello Dolly" at a local HS. My "son" from Willy Wonka is one of the stars and I promised to see the show. I will be going alone, but it will be good to get out of the house. I fear I may talk myself into eating something bad just because I did not get the "called back" validation yet. I remember with Willy Wonka, I started bingeing about an hour before the director called to ask me to be Mrs. Gloop. lol

    Isn't your honey around? There could be a good use for that nervous energy.

    How about making something good for you to have on hand, just in case your nerves get the better of you?

    Honey is at work. I don't have the makings of anything good. I had some almond butter. That seems to help the urge to eat. I have my dinner all planned and tracked and I leave for the show in less than 2 hrs. By the time I get home it will be bed time.

    So, went to "Hello Dolly" feeling a little tired and wired, but figured I would have a good time and stay out of trouble. It was awesome. I ran into so many friends there and had some great conversations at intermission. My director from Willy Wonka was there along with some of the cast both in the audience and on stage.

    This next part, you are not going to believe...I looked up just before the show started and sitting two rows in front of me was the director of Jekyll and Hyde who I had auditioned for this afternoon. At intermission he noticed me and we had a nice talk. I boldly asked about callbacks. He said that he feels he may not need callbacks for the women based on today's auditions, but it depends on who shows tomorrow night. This could be very good for me. I just need to chill and not jump the gun on getting excited. PS the WW director and the J&H director are friends and talked a lot during intermission. I wonder if my old director gave me a reference. :P

    Time to wind down and sleep. I probably won't here anything until late tomorrow night or Monday.

    Today my husband and I saw the current Coach House production "Over the River and Through the Woods" Several of my "Lust n Rust" friends were in it. Other friends were in attendance including the two men who auditioned for J & H with me yesterday. The guys were interested in hearing about my conversation with the director. Afterwards my husband and I hit Boitson's restaurant. I had a glass of red wine and the charcuterie plate. It was definitely a higher day in calories, carbs, protein and fat, but I planned it that way.

    I had a wonderful weekend full of theater and dear friends. I am a lucky girl. Second auditions for J & H are happening now. I am trying to be patient and stay hopeful but getting prepared for a let down if it comes.

    All in all, sounds like a great weekend and you sound very pleased about it. That's what counts!

    Weight holding at 219.7 after a dinner out.

    I received the following email last night...

    "If you are receiving this, I would like you to attend the callback on Monday evening at 7pm. I know, previously I have spoken to a few of you and said I didn’t need to see anymore, but I have changed my mind.

    Please reply to me so that I know you have received this.

    Thank you so very much for auditioning and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow evening. You do not need to have anything new prepared, just be prepared to learn some music and perhaps some scene work.

    Thank you again!!!!"

    So, tonight I will go and fight for the role of Lucy. Prayers and good thoughts appreciated.
