A Wee Bit of Happy News!!!

Hi friends,

Just a quick post tonight as I'm exhausted and bed is calling me .......... but I had to let you know the news I received today!!

At about 1pm I checked my email as I routinely do, and there waiting for me was an email from the casting agency - they have viewed my audition video and have called me for a further audition in Brisbane, this Wednesday!!!! Aaaagggghhhhhhh!!!!!!!! I began to shake from head to toe and continued doing that for nearly an hour! I had to call Stuart, then my Mum....... and there was much shrieking and shaking of heads and wowing for ages!!

It is absolutely incredible, beyond my wildest dreams and such a thrill that I'll be doing my first professional audition this week. I need to sing a musical theatre piece (still undecided!), sing the end of "I Could Have Danced all Night" to show my top C ........... and if I get through that bit, I need to do a tap dancing audition. Here's where it gets really challenging, as I've never ever tapped before in my life!! :( But the rooftop scene calls for tap dancing, so tap dance I must. Desiree is giving me a big teaching session first thing Monday morning, I already have a pair of taps in my hand, and a learn to tap DVD, and I'm GOING TO LEARN in 4 days!! I am determined not to look foolish!

Please pray for me as I prepare for what will surely be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I just want to walk away happy with what I've done. No matter the outcome, I'm so excited right now!!!!!!!! :) :) :) Thanks for listening!
