Amalgamation of Life, Director

Enticement: Auditions

“The time has come, the walrus said!”
Okay, I have a hate love relationship with this quote. I can’t tell if when I quote that I am the walrus since I am saying the time has come. But that’s enough psychoanalysis for a blog post today, or any day really.

My auditions are in a month! I can’t believe it. I’M SO EXCITED! When I initially started this post, I was curious how I was going to fill this *particular* void:

  • How to grab an eye
    • Does alliteration work? — director seeking dynamic duo

Specifically a dynamic duo. My show calls for a set of twins! Do you know how hard it is to find twins in theater? Or, rather, twins who BOTH perform in theater? I’ve been fortunate to meet several halves of a twin couple (I’m not sure if I’m writing this terminology correctly and I am sorry if any offense is taken–it is not intentional or malignant).

I’ve been focused on how to interest and engage with very specific types of people; gymnasts, twins, belly dancers, etc. Very difficult specialities to find in people who exist in the realm of theater. It’s not unheard of, but it’s easier to find in professional theater versus community theater. And that’s okay.

I’ve resigned myself to figure out a way when the time comes, not to continue to stress about it before necessary. And, here’s where it gets interesting, is it necessary to worry? More to come, but I remain excited for auditions, regardless of the characteristics the script calls for–I just can’t wait to see the talent. ‘Til next time.
