    So yesterday, my friend told me she was going to this thing and that I should join her. She would not tell me what it was so I thought "sure."

    I got there and it turned out that they were auditions. I wanted to run. She kept me there and calmed me down cause I was not prepared at all.

    So, things went fast and I auditioned. I was cast right away.

    Cast in what?
    RENT!!!!!
    Cast as who?
    ANGEL!!!!

    What makes this even better? It turns out this was the 3rd round of casting. They had EVERYONE cast except for Angel, Mark, and JoAnn. The casting people approached me and said that they already had a Collins and did not know whether to have me take his place or be Angel!!!!!! I almost passed out when I heard that!!

    So, I am Angel (my FAVORITE RENT character). What makes this better is that it is a one night show for World AIDS Day on December first. Right after the performances, we are going to have a candle light vigil to remember those that have fallen and are falling due to AIDS.

    Can you say . . . Nathan is Ecstatic? icon_biggrin.gif

    That's terrific--it's probably the best part in the entire musical. Time to start practicing those backflips in chunk heels!

    I'm jealous not only of your role, but of your opportunity to do RENT where you live. Not much chance for that in West Texas. (Although Larson's "tick...tick...BOOM!" somehow made it onto this year's community theatre season!)

    I can only echo what others are saying. I have a feeling you'll do well and pour your heart and soul into the part.

    I saw this AFTER i posted to the thread about your shoes.

    I must say... i loath "Rent" BUT i'd come and support you!

    Excellent job on nailing the audition!!!! If it got that far, then i have every faith that u are the perfect choice!

    Now... heed my word on those shoes!!!! And since i dont wanna say "break a leg" i'll give u the dancer's "merde"!!!!
