I guess I'm just a girl who CAN say no!
I was SO excited when Woodford Co. Theatre announced their 2009 season -- they had picked Oklahoma! as their summer musical -- who-hoo! One of my favorites! I had the BEST time doing Crazy for You in 2007, I couldn't wait until they posted information about auditions and show dates.
Auditions are March 8th & 9th -- Sunday afternoon, Monday evening, I can totally do that. BUT THE SHOW DATES ARE EVERY WEEKEND IN MAY!! I just can't see being able to be in rehearsal all night before my finals and still doing well in school. Also, if I get into graduate school I only have 3 weeks off in May before classes begin -- we have to take the second summer session that starts in June.
So I'm going to be a responsible adult and not audition to be in one of my favorite shows ever....I will have to cling to the memory of doing curtains for Cooper's 1995 production when our football quarterback - who was playing Curly, the lead -- spoke to me (ME! a freshman!! I was giddy for weeks!).
