led astray

Yesterday was the first day of school. It was a bit of a let down nerd-wise, but I know nothing gets done the first day. But I do have a homework assignment. :) I am supposed to make a rough rendering of a poster graphic we talked about for the play. Auditions are on Thursday. It turns out that the role I want is the lead. I don't want it because it's the lead, but because I want to portray that character (Lucifer, and yes, the director is open to cross-gender casting). I am somewhat nervous about it because 1) Imight not get it, and 2) I might get it. Last semester I did a show with Wendy (who is directing this show) and had a tiny part with 3 lines and kept a good attitude and had a great time, and I think that will say a lot for me in this audition. I would be perfectly happy to be cast at all, and I even have a back-up if I don't get cast because there is another class I would like to take at the same time slot. The play is The Creation of the World and Other Business by Arthur Miller. I rather enjoy the way God is written in the play as rather absent minded and unaware of his own "plan" for everything. He actually says things like, "I must have meant to do that" and "I'm not sure what I was thinking." But the rest of the semester is going to be rough in that I will actually have to study to maintain my grades. I'm excited about that. I am also supposed to be assistant directing a student production of Psycho Beach Party with James, but it sounds like he only really needs me there for when he's on stage. I'll have to talk to him about it more and assess what he's wanting from me. I'm willing to do the work, I just don't know what work he wants me to do. The last thing I want to do is step on toes. Overall, I feel good about this semester. Only 4 classes and no work. I think this will go a lot smoother than last semester.


:) If you get the part, I know Druid and I would happily help you remember lines and such. Druid's better at it than I am, but I know how much he loves theater, so it could be much fun to help :)
