A Funny Thing Happened...

How you doing?

I'm doing GREAT!

This has been a great week. I've been eating pretty much within my calorie range. I'm not going to beat myself up for going 50 calories over. And I've been exercising consistently.

And last night something awesome happened!

If you have been reading this blog, you know that I had auditioned for Cabaret. I'm not sure if I ever posted, but I did not make it into the musical :(

But oh goes on. So I auditioned for another musical called 'A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum'. And I got the part I auditioned for, Domina, yay! It isn't a lead role, but I do get a whole song to myself! And a couple dozen speaking lines.

Last night we had our first rehearsal, where we got our scripts and everything. After wards the director asked me to stay because she had something to ask me. Well, turns out she was super impressed with my audition and offered me a paid job as the Music Director for the musical! I'm going to be teaching everyone how to sing their parts and warming up everyone before rehearsals.

I am so flattered that they offered me the position simply off my audition! I am proud of myself and really excited. I really want to get back into music. This is a perfect window for me to see if I still like teaching, etc. Which I'm sure I will :) I've been putting together warm ups all morning.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!
