Now if I only had a gun to shoot at it. Hahaha. Nah. It'll probably break on its own.
I'm still waiting on propsmaker Ai no Kaku to email me pics of the G bracelets, buckle and pin I commissioned from her. Granted, she has been ill so I'm not really holding much against her, and she says she's really proud of the work she's done, and from what I've seen she does pretty good work, so I'm optimistic.
In other news, I finally found audition information for Antigone at Willamette!
AUDITIONS for the first semester’s production will be held the afternoon of Monday August 31st between 12:00pm – 6:00pm in room 101 in Kaneko Commons. Callbacks will be held Tuesday September 1st from 6:30-10:30 pm.
Auditions are being held for:
Antigone, by Sophocles
Directed by Jonathan Cole
Rehearsal dates: September 2nd - October 7th
Production dates: October 8th – October 24th
Audition requirements: Please come to the auditions prepared with one classical monologue from the ancient Greek theatre, and 16 bars of a song of your choosing (any period or style is fine for the song – sing something you love!). A boombox will be provided; please bring your own recorded accompaniment or come prepared to sing a capella. Your audition must be memorized and should be limited to two (2) minutes in total.
Please note: there will be a movement audition for all auditioners held immediately after the monologue presentations end. Please bring movement clothes.
I'm currently thinking something of Jocasta's from Oedipus as I want to get the role of Ismene and both those characters plead for peace and inevitably fall. I'm not sure though. Jocasta is obviously more mature... I'm also going to look at some things from Medea and Aeschylus's stuff as I have those in my anthology of drama.
As for the song, maybe "One Day I'll Fly Away" (a capella)? I do love that song, and I can sing it pretty dang well. It also got me into Anything Goes my freshman year of high school. Sooo. We'll see. Yay for having all summer to work!
Speaking of which, I applied for a job at Subway this summer, which is all well and good, but I haven't heard back from them. I need to contact the acting coach at Willamette and schedule a meeting at some point during the summer to discuss which classes I should take and how to set up my specialized voice-acting formula, but I need to know when I will be free before I can do that...
Here are the classes I'm currently considering taking, though. I wish I could take the first second-year course of Japanese but it's at the same time as my Voice/Acting classes,so I'm considering just taking the society/culture course and then taking the second first-year course in spring term to brush myself back up on the language. The culture class currently shows up as being closed but apparently they add another class if enough people request that class. (or I could be waitlisted). I'll add a little note about this when I submit my prioritized list of classes.
