Second Half of a Beginning, First Half of an End?

I did not get the part. In fact, I barely read at all tonight. (Despite mentioning a desire to read for several parts, the director declined.)

She then took me aside and told me she never could cast me because I was too young, no matter how good I had read.

I will let you, loyal blog readers, decide how rude it was to not tell me that sooner. I will also let all of you decide how rude I found it to be. But suffice it to say, I wish I had not had to drive that hour tonight...

But, it gives me more time to work on the one-man show.

That is pretty darn rude. If the call goes out for casting, and there are roles in your age range, then you should be allowed to read in good faith and be given a fair shake.

Prejudging auditions based on things like age is not a very useful way to cast a play. Must say.

Thank you for your comment Freeman. Obviously, I agree with you totally!
