To Rocky or not to Rocky? [Aug. 15th, 2010|07:25 pm]

So, the Warner Theatre is doing The Rocky Horror Show again this year.  I was on the fence about doing it again - as much as I love the show, I didn't have the best time working with a couple of the people there.  So when I found out I'd missed auditions, I was actually kind of relieved that the decision had been made for me.

Well, the decision had been made for me - they went ahead and cast me again.  I found out Saturday when the director sent out a welcome e-mail to the cast.  The first rehearsal is Monday.  Tomorrow.

There's another show - that pays (RHS doesn't)- that I'd like to do that opens the weekend after Rocky closes, so it's highly unlikely that I could do both.  So now I don't know what to do.  I wish they could have given those of us who were in the show last year the opportunity to audition for some of the roles (if I was playing Magenta or Columbia I'd probably go for it!  But I'm in the ensemble).  Of course, if I don't do Rocky, there's no guarantee I'll be cast in the other show, either, which hasn't held auditions yet.

Most of the people I got along with best are not in the show again this year, judging from the e-mail addresses.  And the one that completely hates me IS in it again.

Maybe I'll go to the rehearsal tomorrow and size up the situation.  Or should I just do it?  How often do you get cast in a show like that without even having to audition?  Or should I just bow out, since I hadn't entirely planned on doing it again anyway?  AAARRRGH!  I don't know what to do!
