A few days ago, mentioned multiple audition Saturday. Well, I missed callbacks on the dynamite play that was casting at Theatre in the Round.
But the Shakespeare that I thought I had blown cast me to be a part of not one, not two, but three productions. You practice the scripts and then present "readings" to the public, which are audio taped. Looks like I'll be able to add parts from Hamlet, Cymbeline, and Much Ado About Nothing to the old acting resume.
You never know what a week will bring.
I'm sitting here doing nothing, then...zowie!
I was supposed to not shave all week to do a hillbilly hick in a Matt Dodge music video Friday morning. But then get cast as a doctor in a training film Thursday...clean the cheeks. Maybe will get a day's worth of stubble to go with my aging charm and good lucks by Friday a.m.
Doing a one liner in a MCTC student film Saturday. Men's room, bathroom stall...get to grunt and groan! Hopefully a sliver of my presence seen through the crack in the stall door. Hummm...what kind of undies do I want showing wrapped around my ankles? Decisions! Plus, an MCAD student film audition.
Hoped it would be quiet Art Crawl week (come visit my wife and I at the Tilsner in Lowertown October 8-10). But looks like I may have a call, party, gathering for the Shakespeare group Art Crawl opening day. I know I'm planning on doing the Smile! flash event at the IDS Center Thursday. Just got a call for a voiceover for Capella (big bucks!!) in-school educational film. Still waiting to hear about the Theron movie shooting in town next week, as well as a couple of other gigs.
Yes, Ole and Lena is supposed to start rehearsals Tuesday! Plus Wednesday! Plus Thursday! I have to grab a note and sing!
Always fun to see what the week will bring. A profession that is hard-to-plan-ahead about where-you-will-be!
