It's official; I'm auditioning for The Secret Garden on Saturday.
I'm really excited, but also nervous. I haven't had any time to work on my monologue, since I've been studying for my science final that I took yesterday. Christmas Break is HERE!!!!!!!!
I'm going to be acting as Jo March from Little Women for my audition piece. The following is the part that I'm doing.....
"I hate affected, niminy-piminy girls! I'm not a young lady and if turning up my hair makes me one, I'll wear it in two tails till I'm twenty! I hate to think that I've got to grow up, and be Miss March, and wear long gowns, and look as prim as a China-aster! It's bad enough to be a girl, anyway, when I like boys' games and work and manners! I can't get over my disappointment in not being a boy; and it's worse than ever now, for I'm dying to go and fight with Papa, and I can only stay at home and knit, like a poky old woman!"
This is going to involve a great amount of acting, because I am very happy to be a girl and I make it my goal to act like a lady. But of all the March sisters, I am most like Jo. It's a toss-up. I can't wait to audition, though. My teacher is going to be very proud of me. I am going up against at least 100 other people and we're all trying to get one out of seven spots--four guy roles and three girl roles.
On another note, I am COMPLETELY confused about the SW EU timeline. Can someone with more knowledge than me tell me what comes after Isard's Revenge? I had Jedi Search for the next one, but after reading reviews on Amazon that talk about Luke coming back to the Jedi after turning to the dark side has me confused. There's been no mention of him turning in any of the books I've read. Help?
Let's hope Qui gets that singing video sorted out or has a grand idea for a new post! Till next time,
