One of the cast members had to arrive late and John took me by surprise when he asked me to read in place of her - just from my spot on the couch, of course. I've recalled previous stage managers doing this in shows I've been in, so I shouldn't have been caught off guard, but I was. I didn't try to act [with my voice] too much, just enough to give the other actors something to work with, but I started thinking I'd love to do a play some day. It'd be a nice challenge and something new to try out.
When I was taking my shower earlier today, I had a Broadway mix cd I made a long time ago - yes, made up of songs I like singing along to. Anyway, while singing "The I Love You Song" and "Without Love", I thought to myself, "If a theatre ever did this show, I'd probably audition [for Olive/Penny]." After rehearsal was over, John randomly gave me a pamphlet with SPLT's 2011-2012 lineup of shows. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and Hairspray are both on there. THAT REALLY FREAKED ME THE FUCK OUT. I mean..... WHOOOA. So, yeah, if I can get my voice back in shape, I'll audition. I don't sing Broadway music as often as I used to, so my vocals have been kind of strange lately. But I've also noticed I've gotten better at personality and control when I do sing. Actually, I think I'm going to go and look for a particular duet on YouTube that I... may have sang a couple times in the shower today. :D
