I Got Cast!!!

Got cast in GOOD THING with The Poor Theatre opening end of October.  Really excited!  The part of John Roy.  Written by Jessica Goldberg.  Francis Guinan did the part when it opened in LA. Comparisons?  Hmmmmm.

Great Auditions this week

Had a great time auditioning this week.  Got to go to Berwyn IL.  Never been there.  Check that off the bucket list.   People at 16th St theater really nice.   Everybody is really nice.  Did the Remy Bumppo general auditions last week and the staff was incredibly nice.  Nick Sandys gets up and chats with me. I do my pieces and he gets up again and chats some more.  (Arrrrrgh, couldn't remember a character from The Winters Tale (I did Camillo from it), but either could he.) But it was great.

I guess I am saying they went out of their way to make it a good experience.  I don't need coffee and donuts or a gift certificate but it was a great experience.

Also auditioned for the Poor Theatre for their show Good Thing by Jessica Goldberg.   Great show and perfect part for me.  Fingers crossed.  

I still laugh at the time it takes to get to an audition, prep, dress, and hop in the car---park and walk in then five minutes of work-----then you're done and wondering what you are going to do the rest of the day?  It still amazes me.  The life of the theater.   Gotta love it.

Musical of the Living Dead Audition II

Bummer, never heard from them from May audition---- but they auditioned again, and I talked my way back in.     TEN gallons of blood a night per show.  And they are going to have two casts.  Only one part for a semi-old guy.  But I will take it.  Only show where the directors kept saying bigger, BIGGER!!  Love it.

Perkins and Talent Group

Just got hooked up with the folks at Talent Group and really excited.  AND did my first audition at Paskal Rudnicke for a Perkins Commercial.   Yay----I am doing it.     Just have to practice and audition.  Go to the next one.
