Today I auditioned for the SUNY New Paltz Theatre Arts Program. I am going for a concentration in Performance, and I loved the supportive atmosphere of this school. After a few workshops with the vocal coach, movement teacher, Acting Professor, and Costume Construction teacher, we sat and waited for auditions to commence. I had intended to audition with a monologue from "The Key Exchange". Very spur of the moment, while talking to the accompanist outside, I was convinced to audition with a song. So, I whipped out "I can Hear the Bells" from Hairspray (my go-to audition song) and nailed it. I auditioned specifically for the movement teacher Connie, and she seemed to thoroughly enjoy my performance. I feel very good about today, and I hope to be accepted into the program for this Fall.
