Into The Woods? Into my head. It's official, I'm a nutcase.

  • Minutes spent stressing out that I can't sing and therefore shouldn't bother auditioning - 4, 879
  • First time I saw Into the Woods with Bernadette Peters - 1991
  • Years of wanting to play 'Little Red Riding Hood' - 16
  • Audition songs that don't go outside of my range - 2 (If you count Happy Birthday...which I don't.)
  • Minutes rehearsing said song in front of the mirror at home - 8, 453, 622
  • Pounds to lose before Monday - 25 (HA!)
  • Hours spent tearing up my closet to find something that is appropriate - 3.5
  • Outfits tried on and thrown away in disgust - 12
  • Minutes lamenting the 10 lbs. I've gained over the summer - 697
  • Hours on the phone with Janice (who played the witch 12 years ago) to make sure I could do this  - 1.5
  • Emails to Jeffzilla (who wants to play Jack) - 1
  • Days left until audition - 6

Edit:  Here's the song.  Apologies to Irving Berlin.  http://dracoandginny.com/persephone33/auditionsong.mp3

I've really only wanted a part this badly ONCE before.  It did not go well, as I still have not played Maggie in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.  Good thoughts, huh, f-list?  I'm not usually needy, but the good vibes will go a LOOOOONG way.
