I circled in red the part where I’m credited. Both of our names are above there, as well, as part of the ensemble.
Daniel, meanwhile, auditioned for and got the tenor part of the quintet in the show, was asked to sing tenor for the rest of the songs to help out that section, got a solo in one of the songs, and was asked to be the tenor section leader! Yeah, the choral director likes him. And rightly so. The choreographer/associate director likes him too. ;)
The show is going to be amazing; I’m really excited. I’m basically eating, sleeping, and breathing Sweeney Todd right now, and I couldn’t be happier about that! The cast is made of up THE best performers in Tucson, and it’s bringing together a lot of people who knew about each other but hadn’t worked together yet, so now we’re like one big happy family! Right?!
And on top of the fun we’re having, it’s a paid show! We are each getting paid to be in the ensemble, and I have yet to get my contract, but I will get paid as the associate director as well. It will probably even cover all the gas we’re using to get to and from rehearsals!
In other news, we have 8 DAYS UNTIL MAINE! I’m really excited to go, but of course disappointed in my weight loss efforts. More about that in a different post, but let me briefly say that at this point, I think the best thing I could possibly do is go running each of those 8 days (or otherwise work out for about an hour a day), and drink water, water, water!
So 8 days, 2 work days, 3 rehearsals, 1 day of church… I. CANNOT. WAIT.
