The Night Before.
The eve before a big audition makes one feel somewhat nervous.
I’ve prepared a cracking song, the speech is dead letter perfect and I’ve read the play more times than I would care to admit.
But it will all go out the window if I don’t handle myself well for 15 short minutes. The song has been sung about 40 times today, the speech is on loop inside my head, I know the character well and everything leading up until this moment... But when that heartbeat starts; it’s the biggest obstacle to compete with.
Wish me luck.
