Tonight was the 2nd week of Candida. I went in a little early today so that I could play with the lights and enjoy the show instead of being nervous about it all. It was a little rusty all around for everyone, but I really do love the show! Even when it is a little off it is very funny and entertaining. I can't say enough about the cast and the director, Carolee. They are very friendly, supporting artists and that is really rare to find and I genuinely look forward to going to the theatre every show.
I went back to Samuel French bookstore and bought, Lillian Hellman's The Little Foxes and Moilere's, Amphitryon. I have a list of plays to read, since the meeting on Wednesday. I would like to be fully aware of all the plays that we as a company are thinking of putting into production next year. Plus I then will have a plethora of new material to take monologues from. It's a win, win!
I talked to Joseph, the artistic director tonight about a reading of a screenplay that is going to be performed on Monday, the 27th. He said he had a few small roles that I would be right for, would I be able to come? I said, "Yes." He said, "There are going to be producers in the audience, they want to hear what the screenplay sounds like." I said, "Okay!" And that was that. I am excited about it. I should be getting my copy of the script in the next few days. I really am glad that I got into this theatre company! It has been such a positive experience so far and I am pinching myself over it all.
Next week I begin my class with Brad Garrett and then in October I begin my on camera class. Even though I am not auditioning every week I am glad that I have these classes to keep me busy and to oil my rusty acting. I realize it has been 9 months since I have been in an acting class. Yes, I have gone to orientations and weekend intensives, but they aren't the same. They don't make me feel as if I have made certain skills become habit. They don't necessarily make me feel stronger as an actor, or more confident in my craft, they are just a refresher. I am hoping that these classes propel me into auditions I would not usually get called on, cross your fingers!
Until tomorrow. Take care and be safe.
All my love,
