Grease-y Patty

I rather recently blogged about my elation with being cast in Nunsense - so very p-u-m-p-e-d! (Spelling a word out ads more emphasis, don't you think?) We have publicity photos today and rehearsals start this week. I have my tap, ballet, and character shoes in my gym bag at this moment just waiting to come out of hibernation!

I also, in the same blog, mentioned how out-of-place I thought I was at the concurrent Grease auditions. News, however, has come to light that proves my thought wrong.

I was at our director's house yesterday trying on my habit, when she said, "So do I tell you we fought over you?" Of course I grinned from ear-to-ear and said, "Yes! What happened?"
She then told me that the other director had wanted to cast me as Patty Simcox - the ditsy cheerleader - in Grease. The most amusing thing? I played that part 12 years ago - how is it even possible that I could play the same part for the same teenage look 12 years later? And I find it ironic that the oldest person in the cast would have been playing the most spunky/immature character.

I am definitely amused and boosted in the ego quite a bit. I breathe a sigh of relief at knowing I would have been cast no matter what show, but ended up with the part and the cast I am most excited to be with! (of course, wouldn't I say that no matter what show I was a part of?)
