I’ve been fairly busy for an unemployed person. Well, self-employed. I have rehearsal every night except for Fridays, and since our SCC rehearsals started last Tuesday, I’m actually double booked one night a week.
I’m really enjoying being involved in a show again. It is so much different than choral singing, and so much fun. Choral singing is rewarding because it is challenging and because the sound we produce is sometimes so breathtakingly beautiful I find myself carried away. But, at the end of the day, it’s usually not “fun.” Musical Theater? Fun, fun, fun. Laughs. Fun.
Anyway, I’m finding myself a bit worn out, even not being employed, and am looking forward to when the MSTT show opens so I can have more nights of the week open. I’ve lost 3 pounds though. This is on top of the 2 I apparently lost sometime over the last few months. So, that makes 5, and 10 down from my all time high! Woohoo!
I have so many feelings of inadequacy related to my return to musical theater. So, it’s good that all I’m doing is chorus numbers because that makes me less self conscious about my feelings of inadequacy (if that makes sense). With choral singing, I’m pretty sure that I could be in any choral group anywhere in the world. I just feel I’m that well trained. I’m not the best singer ever, nor am I a superior musician, I’m just well trained. Since my last intensive theater experiences (besides the two shows at MSFT) were in high school, and I never took a single theater class in college, I feel like I missed some training I should have gotten.
But I pretty much feel like I missed some training on just about everything I attempt to do, so musical theater’s no different.
Anyway, costumes are tonight. I am neither the fattest nor the thinest, the oldest nor the youngest, the tallest nor the shortest on stage. This is a good thing.
