Two Days Later He's Got the Strength To Blog Again!

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!

You're so fine Mickey! Break a leg and just pretend you're singing to Jesus. Everyone here in Hollywood supports you, don't worry you're going to be great.

Bravo, Mick...that's fabulous! I think my hubby and I wore out the grooves to that original cast album, we loved it so much. Break a leg...you'll be great!

That is so cool! You will be great - don't doubt yourself. And-you should not feel weird about talking about it! I remember when this first came out, (old, old, old) and I loved the songs! Zootsuitmama

Go Mick! I was in a production of Hello Dolly in Ketchikan, Alaska in the late 70's (quite by accident). I had soooo much fun. Please keep us updated on every little detail.

This album triggers a BIG memory for me. When I was about 6 years old this album was played at a dinner party for friends that my parents had at our home. I remember the music so clearly and being in wonder over the Jesus Christ Superstar title song because to a little girl, Jesus Christ was a "Bad Word". I remember listening to all of the adults talking about the music, the play, etc. I thought it was something important.
Also to Midcentury Madam...I lived in Ketchikan Alaska in the late 70's, until 79 when our family moved to Sitka Alaska.

I was in a production of JCS (in the chorus and I understudied for Mary) a few years ago - love the show, and Simon Zealotes is my favorite song! Break a leg!
