More Phone Calls

My, but technology does play an important part in our lives, doesn't it?

The awaited call from CPS's producer finally came through. If you read my previous post, you know that some of us here at the Sinclair household auditioned for the CPS summer productions of Always, Patsy Cline and The Sound of Music. Here's the scoop.

For the two youngest girls there were no parts - I told them ahead of time that their height was against them. In The Sound of Music they definitely want the seven children to be stepping stones, and the girl cast as Liesl was shorter than Camilla. That took care of that!

They have small parts for me in The Sound of Music -- I will be a nun in the nun's chorus as well as play Frau Zeller in the ballroom scene, the wife of Herr Zeller. She probably has one line, but I bet she doesn't have to move around much! As for Always, Patsy Cline what I've been asked to do is huge yet somewhat insignificant. I have agreed to be the understudy for Louise, the friend of Patsy Cline. There are only two roles in the entire show so they are very big. I will need to learn every line and all the staging but only will perform one time. There are eight shows altogether. Still, it is a real privilege. I hope I do a good job for them and earn some credibility in their eyes.

As for our Carina -- they have asked her to play Patsy Cline herself! Wow!! That is one huge part and will be tons of work for her. She is excited, probably beyond words, as is Mom. That means that the one night I get to perform I will be able to play across from her, as her best friend. What fun that will be!

So, all in all, we are happy. I wish that Liesl had been taller and Mom sure would have loved to have gotten the role instead of the understudy, but... this is totally good. Looks like my summer will be busy enough!
