I had my first Christian Youth Theatre audition this weekend. It began with a massive audition for everyone. I sang On the Street Where you live from My Fair Lady, I was given lots of compliments and I was very excited. That night I got an e-mail saying I was called back the next day to read and sing for Gaston and the Beast. So today all the people called back went through massive audition. We had to sing and dance as an ensemble and slowly through out the day they cut more and more people away. I had to sing and read for Gaston and the Beast. The songs I sang where Me and If I can’t Love Her Again. I was at the audition for a good 6 hours. After the audition a bunch of my friends and I ate and hung out. I got home around 7. Auditions started at 10. It was a very long day.
The Cast List was just posted!
I got the Part of The Beast.
