Okay, they haven't really been "throes," but October has been charging full steam ahead. I've been memorizing increasingly longer monologues for class, while also memorizing some ~200 lines for SPSCC'S production of Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet). This show has been an incredibly fun process so far. I think I will definitely come back to SPSCC theater. They are doing La Cage Aux Folles in the spring, and, depending on what my schedule looks like and what is going on with Evergreen theater, I might audition.
In terms of Perennial Players, the student-run theater troupe that I co-manage at Evergreen, we have hit the ground running with our winter production of Othello, which is being directed by my friend, Ian Suchon. They have assembled a fantastic cast and are incredibly passionate about the project, so I trust in them to put on a high-quality show. I will be handling publicity matters for the production, as well as acting as the Musician for the show, playing transition music for scenes and whatnot.
Audition Updates: I was not cast in Almost, Maine, which I almost thankful for. I will have much more time to focus on class and Goodnight Desdemona, as well as gearing up for Perennial's musical production. I elected to not attend the auditions for Olympia Family Theater's production of Winnie the Pooh, as it would cut into my winter break and would prevent me from going home to San Diego for the holidays.
