Brace yourselves. It’s time for the most stressful week of the year!
Sunday Night, The Day Before Auditions Begin
You cry softy in your bed as you notice that it is 3AM and you are still wide awake.
Monday, The First Open Call
It’s chaos as every student in the theatre department showed up for the first audition day.
Monday Night, Before Singing Auditions
You practice your 32 Bars in the shower until there’s no hot water left.
Tuesday, at the Singing Audition
The music director cuts you off after the first three notes.
Reeling off being cut off by the music director, you vow to kill tomorrow’s dance audition.
Wednesday, at the Dance Call
…the choreographer does the most ridiculously hard combination you have ever seen.
While agonizing over whether you got a callback, you remember that you have 5 tests, 3 papers, and a project due.
You discover you made the callback list! But then…
…the terror of actually going to the callback hits.
Thursday at the Final Acting Callback
In your final moment of glory, you take a big risk that is worthy of a mic drop moment, but the director makes a weird face.
Thursday Night at Home After the Final Callback
You obsessively check to see if the cast list is posted.
Friday at School and the Cast List isn’t Posted Yet
It is 2:00 PM and your director STILL HAS NOT POSTED THE CAST LIST.
Friday Night, the List is Finally Posted
You scroll passing by all the stuff the director wrote at the top about “Everyone did a good job, blah, blah” to see YOU GOT THE LEAD!
ALL DAY Saturday
Nothing can get you down! THE. END.
