All right, so I had my auditions in Chicago on Friday, and while they weren't quite what I expected, I am pleased to announce that I got good news and bad news.
The bad news is that I got cut very early on from the auditions due to my height. It turns out that there were no open spots in my range, so they did not see any point in keeping me there. Add to this the fact that the trip down took 10 and a half hours, partly due to an awful traffic jam in the city, plus the fact that I didn't get time to really see any sights in the city because we had to leave early the next morning to go home, and I was fairly disappointed with the trip.
The good news, however, is that shortly after I was cut from auditions I got a call from my mom at home saying that my purple folder came in, so regardless of the fact that I won't be a Character Performer, I will still be in the program. I was accepted as a Quick Service Food and Beverage cast member for the Fall Advantage program. This role was not even on my list of preferred roles and I specifically said in my phone interview that I did NOT want to work with food, so I was a little surprised, but I figured that its better to be doing that than not going down to Florida at all.
That's about all I can think of to report at the moment. You know the drill by now, but just for old time's sake I'll say it again: please post comments, questions, etc. so that I have fuel for further blogs. Other than that, until next time, have a great day!
