So, on Thursday I am leaving to head up to Toronto. Why Toronto, you ask (if anybody actually does ask)? Well, I'm going to audition for the LOTR Musical. Plain and simple.
I've wanted to audition ever since I first heard about the project a while ago. Before I was thinking of how I would get overseas to audition, but now it is opening in Canada. Well, within driving distance is much better. So, I'm packing up and heading there for a few days. I have so many odds against me for this audition (not union, not Canadian, no agent), but my friends insist I go because they all think I'm perfect for it. I think I'm right for it too, but we'll leave that up to the casting directors.
All I know, is that despite these odds I still have to go. I mean, I can't just give up and throw in the towel if this is my dream, can I? What would've happended if Frodo never volunteered to take the ring, what if Eowyn had never disguised herself and rode into battle... I mean, quitting is not even in the stories. That is not what the stories are about... so how could I simply quite and not audition? I can't, that's right. I must go. What's the worst that can happen? I don't get cast... right... well, I can deal with that. What would kill me is not even taking the chance. So I am. I just really hope that I actually get to audition and that they don't turn me away at the door, because that would break my heard. I've got my audition piece all ready to go.... I'm set. I just hope that they'll believe in me enough to see. We'll see, I guess.
