Singin' in the Rain!


I've just been cast in...
What part, you ask? KATHY SELDEN! Yes, friends. Don't worry, I'm just as surprised as you are.


To be honest, I thought I was a complete fit to play Lina Lamont. On my audition sheet (when asked what part I wanted to be considered for) I even wrote 'Lina. (Kathy? Maybe?)'. I can't really dance and I've never really thought about being Kathy, plus I've wanted to play Lina forever...but as the call back went on they kept cutting other girls and had me read and sing and read and sing. The Director nearly let me choose which part I wanted to play, but he thought that Kathy would be more of a challenge for me (and he's right, I can't dance, remember?).

We had a cast meeting tonight and I really feel that the show is going to be GREAT! Such incredible people, I made an instant bestie with Bethany (of 'Bringing Lady Back') and feel like I'm going to create some amazing friendships. I'm so excited to get to work and bring it all together, it's going to be epic. You must come and see it, won't you? "What a glorious feeling, I'm happy again!"

Thrilled to be referred to as "instant bestie". True!

I can't wait! We're going to be so good.

And, you're going to nail Kathy.

{hmm. That came out way wrong, but I'm leaving it because I know it will make you laugh.}

"Break-a-leg!"
