A Call Back

Yesterday, I had a call back for a part in a show about a certain Old Testament biblical character who had a certain coat of many colors.

While I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much, I really think that I did a good job, and I also kind of think that they liked me. The only thing (and it's quite a major thing) not in my favor is that an actor that they have used before was also up for the same part, and this company tends to like to continue to work with people it has already worked with. This makes it so much more important that I get in, because then I stand a chance of them just calling me and asking me to do other roles.

The show plays at a local theatre company that, while it looks like it would not give me points for getting in the actors' union, pays its non-union actors pretty well. As we all know, supplemental income is always a nice thing.

The director said that the company would let me know within 72 hours, which is nice in that some theatres say nothing, and you are left alone to scrutinize why they aren't calling and how you could have possibly done better. This way, I know that if I haven't heard by Saturday, I'm probably out of luck.

Good luck, AC.

P.S. Have you heard of this livejournal plot to visit Magic Mountain on Saturday? I'm on the fence as to whether or not I'll go... I do have some 2 for 1 coupons at my disposal...

I have heard of the livejournal go to Magic Mountain scheme, but I will be unable to go as I have two shows on Saturday. I think you should go, though, as my brother will be working there that day. He just got a job up there; he's in charge of making sure everybody is buckled in on the roller coasters.
