Ok so I just got back from play rehearsal for Meet Me in St. Louis. I play the role of Tootie Smith, the youngest of the four daughters! My character is basically a crazy macabre 10 year old! She's kind of a psychopath.. LOL :P She's a fun character to play, though! It feels like I'm a young kid again! Tootie is so fun, but a little strange sometimes (aren't we all? XD) because in one scene I have to pretend to bite my dad's boss's leg because I'm trying to sabotage, so that the dad doesn't get transferred to New York!
The cool thing is that my best friend (who is also a SW geek girl) plays the my sister, who I look up to and am most friendly with! We have lots of scenes together! We're like sisters in real life, so acting like we're sisters isn't hard at all! :D
This week is tech week, and so is next week. We open next Thursday! I'm so excited to finally be in a professional play with a big part! It helps my dream of wanting to become an actress one day! Well, I hope that everything goes well in opening night and all of the other shows!! We've been working so hard on this play!! I can't wait to actually perform it in front of an audience!! :D
