Audition results

3 Oct

So far Southern California seems to fit like a glove. Even after living in seven different cities since my 18th birthday, there is no place like home, like the beach. So, after a morning of surfing, still high from the salty air we reached our computers to find out our audition results for Groundlings. By some random fluke of performance confidence I had managed to persuade the instructor that I had serious Improv skill. My two compadres, unfortunately, had no such luck. It’s amazes me how fickle this business is. I think there must be a direct correlation between your ability to tolerate rejection and your success. I felt a little guilty but I would be lying if I didn’t say I wasn’t pleased that all the hard work is paying off.

I signed up for the next available class. Starting today, October 3rd. There are three levels to Groundlings. Most people end up having to repeat a level if they want to move up. But ifyou get through all three levels, you get a certificate that confirms you are ruler of the universe (at least that’s what I like to imagine). As for today, I just get an invisible pin that says “not too shabby” and that works plenty for me.
