You spend so much time hustling to get auditions, making your way half around the city so someone can see you. Endless acting classes, where you strive to be present. Preparation and planning to move your career forward one day at a time. So when you book a gig, its a feeling of accomplishment, it's a feeling that the universe is working for you, it feels like everything is finally happening....You take it all in and the feeling you feel is much more then happiness, it's more then that and it makes all the rejection all the bullshit you put up with when doors slam in your face, when people put you down, worth it.
Here are the responses from the 2 musical auditions that I had:
Musical Audition #1
Thank you so much for coming in to audition for me last week. I would like to offer you a role in our play. You would be an attendant in Herod’s court as well as one of the women whose children is slaughtered. You will do some singing, perhaps a some dancing and a bit of stage combat, so it should be fun. I hope you will join our cast.
