He also has the time!
So my dearest readers...exciting news!
Sunday I was asked to join a production of "Jesus Christ Superstar" at our local Backdoor Theater. So sunday night I get to the theater to try out for the chorus (i'm not the greatest singer) and upon arriving I realize one minor detail that I overlooked... I have NO IDEA HOW TO READ MUSIC!!! However it wasn't a problem, one of my friends who I was in theater with in high school is playing the role of 'Judas' and he helped me get the hang of it. Here I am, the only people I know being my friend, and the lady who asked me to come and we begin (they had been in production a week before sunday). Well I was hoping to hide out in the chorus; BUT the director in need of Apostles says "Oh Mickey, ...your so fine... your so fine you blow my mind, hey Mickey. Would you want to sing the part of Simon?" I gave a big smile and reply "Maybe?!" to which the director says "The correct answer is yes, so you need to look over his part and be prepared to sing it". (fun fact: as of now 2 of the apostles are red heads!)
Heres the song, "Simon Zealotes" I come in "Christ what more do you need to convince you"
I have no idea why, but I was so nervous, and was really shy. This is gonna have to change! Haha I cant be quiet and sit at home forever! I'm really glad I get to be apart of this, Its so much fun and I hope i'm not over stepping my boundaries blogging about it. I also think its kind of fitting, of all the musicals/record albums/cd's I have never added Jesus Christ Superstar to the list and yet its the one I try out for! Haha.
Well i'm off to practice the songs and do some spanish!
