So, you must be busy with rehearsals, but tell us all about the auditions you did for GODSPELL. What'd you sing and how many times did they call you back. Craziness?

Hmm...this is a great question. It's sort of hard to keep count as I have been on a 3 1/2 year journey with this show. The first time around, I went in 4 times...(1 initial pre-screen and then 3 call backs.) As far as what I sang..well...this was actually the first time I brought in original material for a show! I re-wrote the parable GOOD SAMARITAN into a spoken word piece, and sang two original songs entitled "appreciation" and "baby blue". In addition to that I also sang Robbie Williams' "Angel". Then in the final callback I sang the song (that I will now be singing in the show) "LEARN YOUR LESSONS WELL." This past time around, the process was a little different for me, as I have been attached to GODSPELL for so long so I won't bore you with the details, but I am just so glad to get the chance to be a part of this glorious piece!
