Today Stuart took his Prep kids to Underwater World for their end of year excursion.
Today the kids and I enjoyed a visit from my old neighbour in town, Jane and her two boys. SO nice to catch up with them, talk about Wicked, play with lego, build castles with boxes, catch baby frogs at the dam....... and drink tea. And talk. :)
And today I have thought about little else than this. Cameron Mackintosh is currently producing and casting the Australian production of Mary Poppins, and as yet still hasn't found anyone to play the role of Mary. So. After running auditions in Sydney and Melbourne, they may continue auditions soon in Perth and in Brisbane. Brisbane is just 3 hours south of here, and if they hold them - I've decided to go. Because I just can't stop thinking about the possibility!!! Can you imagine?! Even just the experience of the audition would be amazing for me.
In the meantime, the producers have asked Australian sopranos out there who are between 25 and 30, and are interested in the role, to post audition videos on Youtube. Yeah, I'm going to do that too. Tomorrow morning. Eeeeek!! Scary but exhilarating, all at once!
And here is a little clip for you of the vocal group I am in - we recorded ourselves at our Wednesday night rehearsal this week and Kurt (male soloist in this video) has put it together today. This song is Seasons of Love from the musical Rent. We sang it recently at the LAD Dance Concert.http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=197018244768&ref=nf
Life has been busy this week, but full of music which for me always equals happiness. :)
