Rehersal has been stressful lately...
The director, Art Waldman, is a weird....director.
He hates every monologue I do. I'm really beginning to doubt my acting abilities 'cause of this play.
It's a play that is different, I'll say that. Oberhofer and I are playing 11 different characters each, and each character needs something distinctive about 'em. The one character I am having trouble with is "Sherriff Carrol", a monologue of a dumb sherriff. It took me two weeks to get it down to what he likes, and after he says he likes it, a week later he doesn't like it anymore. He says it lost the "distinct character" I made it into. Well, I thought I did it the same today. Or maybe it's just 'cause I was really not feeling too good today and I was drowsy...who knows?
I'm also doing studio theatre again, a parody of "Little Red Riding Hood", and I get to play the wolf, who's played like a Pimp. Haha THAT role is ten times more fun, I must say.
I met this girl Wendi...she's really cool. She really thinks highly of my acting abilities, like no other has before. I hung out with her a few times, and she's pretty fun to be around... She is one of the people in the play, and it's her first time acting so I kinda coach her every now and then.
But it's hard to coach someone when the real director thinks you're not at your peak either.
Everyone else in the cast thinks he knows my abilities and he's just trying to push me....Well if that's the case, DAMN! He pushes me pretty hard.
That's what she said.
I'll nail it, if I doubt myself now then I WILL flop. Confidence is the main key to improving + acting.
Here's the showdates if you care to see me!
