 Iv got to say, I doubted myself at last Sundays auditions, but last night we focused on getting the new people caught up on try out and  trying out The Major General and Fredericks parts. I believe there were 9 of us lined up to try out for Major General,  4 went ahead of me and I was the 5th.   As you know from my other post the Majors song is a super fast tongue twister, and the Pianist was taking it slow where everyone could get the hang of the words. Well dear bloggers i have dreamed about this part since I was 6 so you better BELIEVE I came to this audition 'loaded for bear " I walked up on stage and the pianist said "well how fast can you read?"  and I said "Oh lets try it" so we took off slow and I sang the first verse. Then the 2nd time we went a little faster, but still only about half the actual speed to the song. When I finished singing, I asked her if we could go faster?  to which she exclaimed "FASTER?!"   The stage manager turned to the director and said "Hes going to do it show speed!"   The director says "I like the sass you bring to the character so just go wild with expressions."  and round 3 beings...  Im not usually a bragger, but I did it flawlessly and finished the verse to an uproar of applause, and an offer to ' be the father of someones children'!  After that the director stopped the auditions for Major General and we moved on!  (YES NAILED IT! )  I thought to myself, and sure enough!   The only down side to all this, is I will have to  re-grow my beard and mustache, (and I really wanted to be clean shaved for "As Time Goes By" but oh well.. that's Theater!  Gosh you guy have no idea how excited I am to tackle this project, Simon in Jesus Christ Superstar only had 1 song, and iv been informed that the General is in at least 5.  We start rehearsals tomorrow at 7:00 and I cannot wait!

You're the very model of a modern Major General! LOL- I actually know a Maj. Gen. (of the Marines) and I can't help thinking of that song every time I see him. You'll have a blast!
