With the first days of rehearsal fast approaching I am starting to feel the fear creep up. What in the world was I thinking? Why would I ever as a chubby 29 year old think I can go run around like a Disney character? Can you tell I’m starting to freak out?!?!
This is more of a self esteem thing I think than anything. All I’ve gotten from the few people I’ve gotten to know at the theatre so far is super positive feedback. That doesn’t stop me from thinking I will suddenly forget how to sing and/or dance. It also doesn’t stop me from thinking I will forget the only 5 lines I have in the show. It also doesn’t stop me from thinking I will botch my little solos in the Mersisters songs and say my name is Aquata instead of Atina or something.
Sunday will be the beginning of a 2 month journey that I have been waiting a very long time for. I only hope I can rise to the occasion. I’m hoping that I was meant to be on stage sometimes instead of just behind the scenes. Say a little prayer for me peeps. Cause this is getting real.
