Didn't get into Wizard of Oz.

not even ensemble.

and the other two auditions I was planning on going to, my mother informed me that I have a HUGE conflict during a performance.

a;ldjflkaj;flkda

I won't be able to even audition for anything else for a long time. Which means I won't be in a show.

HOW THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED TO NOT BE IN A SHOW FOR MONTHS???

my mother's descirbing it as "another amount of time to improve audition skills." That technically is true, but its been what I've been doing all. freaking. summer.

:cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:


I understand completely Rachel...my next audition is like in a couple weeks (MAYBE...Idk. but I highly doubt I make it) and then in January.

This is where I go, "AHA! Backstage experience!" But "NOOO! I'm sick of backstage."

Actually one good way to get that company and directors to get to know you better is working backstage for the show. So I would call the director and ask if there was anything crew wise you could help with. Then the next time you audition with that company and/or director you are more familiar to them. I know a lot of people who have done this and scored some great roles the next season and/or show. PLus it will help you get to know the backstage scene. ( Which I think every actor sould experience) It also helps fill your appetite for musical theatre in the downtime without the full commitment.

A director who knows someone and is comfortable with them goes along way.

I second this. If you work hard and show commitment to the show the director will recognize your professionalism. I've said on other threads that this can go a long way in casting. If a director knows that you will: show up on time, work hard, be non-disruptive, etc. they are more likely to cast you.

I am trying to worm my way into school crew, as the majority of my shows will be there for the next four years. Networking has become one of my biggest theatre priorities lately.
