"Sisters" Audition

Well, today was my audition for the "Sisters" theatre showcase. I arrived about 5 minutes early for my audition and the director, Steve, was there waiting. We sat and talked for a few minutes and I handed him my headshot. He told me it was a great photo and he was very happy that I look just like my headshots. Woohoo!! Right before I began my read, another man came in the room and Steve introduced me to him. I feel like a really dummy because I can't remember his name and that's not a good look.

Anyway, I performed one of the monologues that Steve had sent to me the week before and when I was finished, he asked me to perform it again more forcefully (almost the same direction that I was given in my last audition) and so I did. After I performed it again, they both were nodding their heads as if I had nailed it, then they told me that I did a great job. Then Steve asked me to cold read for another character. He gave me a few minutes to go over the sides and then I went right into the read. He gave me a bit of direction and had me read it again.

When I was finished, he told me that it was great and complimented me on on my ability to take direction well. Then he told me that he wants me to come back next week to read with an actress that he has in mind for another character in the scene. So......I got a callback!!! I go back in on Monday and I'm very excited. I feel like I'm on fire right now!

I have an audition tomorrow for "Happy Hour", another play. I also have a print casting for Exxon Mobile on Thursday, and was e-mailed about a student film audition the same day. Unfortunately, the casting is at 7pm and I have to work that night. I e-mailed the director and I'm hoping that we can work out another time. I don't want to pass up the chance to audition for anything. If I have to, I'll try to get out of work.
