I’m a star!

For the first time I am auditioning for a play, at least if I keep my nerves and find some sort of accompaniment for the song I want to sing. (Lullaby of Broadway)

Really it’s Lilah who is the driving force behind this because she so desperately wants to be on the stage, or TV, and this year the annual play that some friends participate in will be Wizard of Oz and I figure the girls would be perfect munchkins. After seeing Hannah in Aladdin even Eden wants to audition, though she wanted to be Dorothy, no doubt because she was Dorothy for Halloween in 2007, but I told her she might be Toto or a munchkin. Judy says they take pretty much anyone who auditions because it’s usually the same people each year, with a few newbies who join for a year or two.

My family has gone to the play each year the Lee’s have been it it, around 12, except the one year they weren’t. It was a church stake play and now has grown to be a foundation play and it turns out quite well each year.

I hate singing in front of people but I have a secret desire to perform and have always wanted to be in the play with the Lee’s.

I have only sung a solo once in my life and it was the last concert of my senior year of high school, and I had been in choir the whole four years of high school. I’m a good choir singer, not the strongest sight reader since I sing Alto, but I’m OK if I have someone to help me get the part down, though after not being in a choir for 8 years I’ve gotten rusty and only sing Alto if I really know the part and even now I wonder if I’m hitting the right notes.

I think the play will be really fun to be in and I’m excited for the girls. I’m just nervous about me singing and doing the little dance steps they show you that day and I don’t want to assume they’ll take everyone so I have let the girls know that they may not get in it or be the part they want, since Eden wants to be Toto but that’s kinda a starring role for a little kid and I’m not sure she’d get it since she’s a newbie and so young.

I searched on-line for some voice warm ups so I can somewhat practice and get my voice more prepared in the week and a half that I have and maybe I’ll be able to stay in tune for the 16 measures I’m suppose to sing and get over my nervousness, though I doubt I’ll get over my nervousness.

Wish us luck and hope everything goes well for Eden and Lilah.
