An Ox Tale of Two Auditions

Posted by Ruok On February - 17 - 2010

So before the end of the Year of the Ox, I managed to squeeze in two auditions.

The first one was to be part of a company of actors that will help act out scripts churned out by Tisch students. I actually went for an earlier casting call late last year but didn’t get it, so when they held another one, I thought it was for a different cohort of students.

I had prepared a different monologue from the last time and I saw some familiar faces amongst the students from the last time round. In the end, I didn’t manage to get in, but it got me thinking why they’d asked me to audition again if it wasn’t for a different cohort of students.

In their rejection email, they say they might have another round in Fall, but I don’t think I would bother with auditioning again.

The last audition was for an OKTO production and I must say I had fun with it as they put me through no less than 5 different improv situations. Man I really miss improvs. Now I’m hoping they don’t think I look too young for the role. This aspect of me is sometimes a blessing and sometimes a curse. For roles like this one its usually a curse. >.< So that sums up the Year of the Ox for me. Here's hoping the Tiger would be a roaring success for me! RAWWRR!

Happy Chinese New Year!
