|I really wasn't that good.|
I was a teenage Gleek. I was in choir from the time I was a wee awkward chubby girl. And on it went until my junior year of High School when my Choir Director told me I should audition for the musical. It was Anything Goes.
I did. I auditioned. FOR THE CHORUS. Because it never EVER occurred to me that I could be anything other than in THE CHORUS.
Then the Director called my mom at home and asked if I could audition for one of the leads instead of just the chorus. I flipped the hell out. My mom encouraged me. And I did. And I got the part. Talk about heady. Look, Theatre and Chorus kids were not the cool kids at our High School. But in that circle, to be a lead in a musical, meant I was PRETTY. HOT. SHIT.
