Y’all, I got some super exciting news on Sunday. You may recall that I had an audition last week. I went out for Florence, the lead female role in Chess the Musical, and I FREAKING GOT THE PART!
This part is super meaty. Lots of excellent songs and some really serious shit happens to the character. It’s also a part that has been sung by my idol, Idina Menzel, of Frozen fame. I’ve been a fan of hers since long before Frozen came out, and to get to sing some of the same songs as her is a total dream come true.
This definitely isn’t the big leagues–this is a small show in a small theater in a small town. But it feels SO COOL! I feel like a rock star. I’ve never actually had a leading part in a community show in Vermont before, and I’m SO EXCITED to get to show people what I can do.
Here’s a little taste of the kick butt stuff I’ll be up to this summer 😀
Another reason I’m so excited is because this is just one more reason to stay healthy and keep up with my running and cross-training. This type of rock and roll singing is incredibly athletic. Yes, you read that right, singing can be athletic. I’ll need to stay super hydrated all the time, and have a strong core to support scream singing my face off. IT’S GONNA BE AWESOME!
Have you ever been in a play or musical? Would you?
