My apologies for missing last week's advice deadline.
I do however have an update of sorts. in the sense that I have plans, but haven't actually done anything yet.
I have been perusing the site of the Old Opera House. I was perusing the descriptions of the plays they are performing this year. Though no audition dates have been set yet, I feel 90% certain I shall try out for this play.
I have not yet read the script. In fact, the last several plays I have tried out for, there have not been scripts available to read. I always prefer to do that before an audition, but you do what you can do.
Be that as it may, I think I will try out for it anyway, despite the premise not being one that catches me on fire. Overall it is time that I get back into the game. Since becoming an actor, I have never gone this long without being in a show. (It was July the last time I performed, for those of you keeping track.)
Also, it is a comedy. I have lamented the shortage of solid dramatic plays in the area previously on this blog, and I will not belabor the point here. Suffice to say that at this point, however, I will take comedy, if that is all that I can get right now.
I have also looked at the websites of other theatres in the area. Nothing to write home about there either. They are fine institutions, and I yet have hope to make my debut in some of them before I die, but I just do not see anything that makes me catch my breath just yet.
So, an Opera House comedy is my next goal. The show goes on in late march, so my guess would be auditions would take place in or around the second week of February. As always, I will keep you posted.
