Even though auditioning for a show can be nerve wracking…… I’m still grateful for them. And on many different levels.
First, because I always run into fellow performers. It’s always fun to see those you know through the theater world. We’re such an odd species! <grin>
Second, if you are open and aware you can make new friends. That usually always happens when doing a show, but making friends can happen anywhere if you are just….. well…. friendly!
Third, if you are lucky like I am, you have talented children you can hang around and eavesdrop in on their auditions. Which can make a Mom proud.
Now is everything associated with auditions fun? NO! But I’m still grateful that I occasionally go through them…. even if I don’t get cast. You never know…. You just might!
I believe it was Wayne Gretzky who said: “You miss 100% percent of the shots you don’t take!
Well….Here’s to this shot! Break a Leg, y’all!
I Am Grateful! How Are You?
