After playing a featured role in the company's first offering, an enhanced staged reading of "The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge," I became a paid member and offered to help with their marketing and publicity efforts.
I assigned myself the task of observing the first night of auditions for the musical, which, appropriately, will be presented at the Chapel & Cultural Center on Burdett Avenue in Troy, NY, in April.
I'd never been to a musical audition before, despite my years of writing and casting tv commercials for the likes of Quaker State Motor Oil, Curad bandages, Krystal Restaurants, Dairylea products and CSEA.
I'm hoping to expand on the insider's view that I gained into the process, which includes, of course, singing, reading parts and dancing.
Meanwhile, I'll try to keep learning and sharing in this new venture which promises to bring a lot of quality entertainment to the area.
