76... 75... 74...

Join a drama/ theatre group, Be in a play/ musical, Perfect an accent and use it in drama: All check!!!

A few weeks ago my friend Sam and I saw an advert for auditions for a local production of Fame by Rare Productions. We decided to go to the audition and see what it was all about, seeing as the storyline of Fame has always intrigued me somewhat, as well as wanting to have something to preoccupy us. Turns out, the auditions were packed! There were two dates, and the first (which we attended) at least saw 300 hopefuls audition - really says something about the lack of artistic productions in Essex, doesn't it?
Not expecting too much, a week later both Sam and I received lead roles in the production!!!! I will be playing Serena, who is the role I would have chosen given the chance. It will be so nice for once NOT to play a psycho/ freak! A production like this really brings people together when practising, and already we have met some great new people!
Oh, and the performance requires an American accent for the role. So three in one! The role also consists of two singing solos... why?!?!?!?

For anyone interested and in the area; there are four performances from May the 6th - 8th. It's an open performance so any one's welcome to come along and watch!

Dye my hair: check

I am now a medium brunette!!! Still, I'm not brave enough to take the plunge entirely and will be back to being ginge in a few short weeks.

77... Slowly but surely getting there!!

Audition for CENTRALLLL

Today I got an email through inviting me to audition for the Central School of Speech and Drama in March. As in one of THE best drama schools you could ever possibly attend. As in THE only drama school I've dreamed of going to since I was tiny (other than that I've always been more of a uni person!).
The fact that I have to learn 4 monologues is enough to send me into a raging panic. But no, I have to SING on top of that! It's going to be interesting...

Audition for CSSD: check

So I can 'check' this off because I've sent off my application; whether or not I get offered an audition is out of my hands. As a budding drama student, it's only natural that I apply for Central - despite it being practically impossible to get in unless you already have an academy award under your belt! :)
Still, pleasing news that Surrey university accepted me to study Theatre Studies, on the condition that I achieve 320 UCAS points. This means that I have to crack on working, and that the blog may have to take a back seat for a while - don't fear! I still have 5 months left to complete the remaining 77 tasks!

Oh, and Happy 2010 :)

80... 79...

Learn to make an awesome roast dinner: check

So 'awesome' may be a slight stretch of the truth. My brother and I decided that it would be fun to make the Christmas dinner this year- turkey and all... Turns out we saved the poor thing just in time from literally tasting of charcoal! Still, I can only get better, right??


Make a Christmas decoration: check

A photo will shortly follow this announcement, seeing as my artistic efforts are truly laughable...

HAPPY HOLIDAYS Y'ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D:D:D

  • Reading the second installment of the LOTR series,
  • Making a Christmas decoration,
  • Working on a ONE THOUSAND piece Edward Cullen puzzle,
  • Getting better at guitar hero!

Write a poem: check

I contributed to writing one for our final drama performance. The theme is depression, suicide, etc...

There was once an old spinster named Brenda Mcfee,
who sat on her arse all day drinking tea.
The stains on her teeth and her long fluffy hair,
made her confidence sink right down to despair.
It's a sad story, she was left at the alter you see,
now the only man she talks to is from Asda's home delivery,
but she still writes to all her friends from school
about her fake 'family' and how they're so cool!
Now today is the day that she's had enough;
she's turned to the fags, the booze- all that stuff.
She puts on her lippy and combs through that hair,
then SMASHES her face into that old wooden chair!
She's dead on the floor, her soul has expired.
Not to mention her face that has gruesomely retired.

Pleasant... I know.
