As today winds to its close, my hands are starting to shake as the nerves begin to set in.
Tomorrow, I have an audition for Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson at San Jose Stage. I’ve been prepping pretty well since I got my appointment time last week, but the anxiety just doesn’t get easier. I’ve got a few new tricks to deal with it, so it isn’t as torturous as it used to be.
As I think about everything I need to do tomorrow, I am finding that is what’s building up the stress so much more than just the audition would.
I am sure I’ve mentioned how the spring time at the nursery is totally nutty. It’s going to be a feat to get out of there for a lunch break that will be timed so that my audition is right at the middle then rush back to work. I don’t think there is going to be a chance to decompress once that 40 minute break starts. I am crossing my fingers that I will just be so focused on getting everything done on time that I won’t notice the shakes that I am sure will strike as soon as I step into the room.
I mean the worst thing that could happen is that I don’t get cast in the show. While I am itching to be in a show again, I know that it just depends on what the director and casting director are looking for.
Regardless of what happens, I look forward to the experience. It will be fun to make new connections.
If you haven’t heard of BBAJ, here are some links to familiarize yourselves. I love the soundtrack. Check it out the preview on Amazon.com. Interestingly, iTunes doesn’t offer it.
Oh, and by the by, getting ready to do my first book review!! Yay!! A publisher actually allowed me to review one of their books. I am moving up in the world. hahahaha
