A Recent Audition
When time came to go to a recent audition, I decided to stop stressing over what to wear and how I look and just went as me. It's also the audition I took my boot off in the middle off. And "impressed" the auditioners.
Yup, it was a comedy audition. A fun scene where my character is a bit tipsy and not exactly at their best. It was fun and quirky, and I was really excited to have a chance to showcase that as opposed to all the dramatic roles I've been cast in.
And yes, I took my boot off. Just one. And finished the scene waving it around wildly. I felt good about my performance and about the role. The feedback was wonderful, and I was told they wanted to cast me.
Unfortunately, technicalities got in the way and the role went to someone else. But hopefully, I made an impression and there's something else just waiting for me.
