Grease is the word
So, I'm helping out with auditions for Grease in Southington. Anytime I watch auditions for a musical, I realize how much I lack the cojones to sing and dance in front of other people. Do a straight show? Sure, no problem at all. I love it. But I really can't sing (like, not even "Happy Birthday") and my dancing skillz are even worse. When I was watching the auditionees up there learning the dance combination, all I thought to myself was, "If I had a month to learn that, I couldn't." Yet these 16-year-old girls were getting it down in two seconds. I guess we all have our talents, and when it comes to musicals, mine come everywhere else but on stage (unless it's doing a set change during a blackout).
