Every single person on this planet has at least one secret that could break your heart. If we could just remember that, there would be a lot more compassion and tolerance in the world

Revisiting PIPPIN

So I'm into my third week here at the Y and I've just been cast in my first show, PIPPIN. I was so excited when I heard a graduate student would be directing my favorite show! Yes I know I've been it before but I couldn't resist auditioning! I auditioned last week and I found out a few days ago that I got cast as KING CHARLEMAGNE. I'm so excited to play this type of character because its something I don't get cast as very often, so I'm so greatful to the director for having enough faith in me! This production of PIPIN is a shortened version and it is not a main stage musical so it performes three times on a thursday afternoon for the theatre students here at BYU. Its on October 22nd at 1, 2, and 4 o'clock. Even though this is a smaller production it is still very competitive so I'm so excited I was given a character! My next audition is for a main stage musical called Casey at the Bat. I audition against hundreds of MDT students here that are very very talented but I'm staying positive! I'm so greatful I've had the opportunity to watch the amazingly talented students here and I can't wait to get to a point when I can join them! I've got a lot of hard work ahead of my but the future looks bright!
