“So I was Cinderella”

Now granted it’s been since high school, but yes, I have auditioned for many-a-play. I guess I’ll talk about my favorite role. So my senior year of high school. I was the only senior that was involved in theater like consistently. So, I’ve been from freshman year on in like the spring play was always a musical and I was always in that except for, I think Anne of Green Gables, and I opted out of that and in that case, I was make-up and then I was staged crew so I always had some role but I was pretty much always on the stage. So, senior year spring- I don’t remember what the fall play was, but the spring musical, they came to me and said, “what do you want? You’re the only girl, you’re the only senior we’ll let you pick” and the sky was the limit because I went to like I said Catholic school and there’s actually money in the theater department which was shocking. So I said, “I want to do Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella” and they were like, “Oh, okay. Well, just let you know. It’s really hard to get those plays.” Well, they got it and then they made me audition for it, which was kind of funny because, like, I could sing, and they knew I could sing. And I today, I was actually singing the musical in my car, on the way to work. So that was fun for part of the, they wanted my range. So there’s a few songs that they had identified. They were a couple of hymns and then they had me song Star-Spangled Banner. So I did, and that was kind of funny for an audition, cuz everyone was like, what? I didn’t know, you could sing that. And then they, for a minute, wanted me to sing at the sports, but I said, “no, thanks.” So I was Cinderella. And it was, it was wonderful. I had a wonderful time in that play.
