BIG developments in the theater world over the last couple of days.
First up, I found out that I have a KISS! AHHHHH. I freaked out for about five minutes, then before I knew it, we'd run the number three times. It was more awkward before it happened than it is if I stop and think about it now. It's just part of the choreography at this point. But yeah. Go big or go home, right?
THEN, I pleaded my case enough to be able to tap dance in one of my numbers. Violet has a lifelong dream of being CEO and we indulge her with a little song and dance about it called "One of the Boys." I brought my tap shoes in over the weekend and fired off a few steps much to my director's amusement. It worked though, and she promised me I could tap. I KNEW those classes would come in handy! We finally learned the number on Monday, and it is legitimately hard, especially for this girl. I can sing without issue, I can dance without out issue: having to do both at the same time is a challenge, especially a solo. But it will work out. Practice makes perfect! I was struggling to connect some of the tap steps and the director waved off my frustration: "Go home and practice it. I'm not worried. You'll get it. I can tell you want it bad." She's right; it's exactly what I wanted to do. The crowd better go wild!
Third, I found out I get to wear a real Snow White dress for another dream sequence. A full-fledged princess outfit!? I've died and gone to Heaven!
And last but not least, guess who has a headshot? I don't love it QUITE as much as my first headshots, taken by my BFF, but it'll do...
Kissing strangers, tap dancing all over the place, being a princess... and they call this acting?!
