I had planned on going to audition at Blackwell Theatre for To Kill a Mockingbird, but after looking at mapquest, it was over an hour drive from there to home with good traffic, so never mind.
Just got home from doing an audition for County Seat Players, The Philadelphia Story. I don’t think it went well. There were about 20 people at the audition, which apparently was very good for them, but at some point, the director and assistant director stopped asking me to read.
So driving home, I was thinking about what one director in the past said about me was that I had a “sing-song” voice. I wonder if I just read poorly and don’t realize it. I suppose I should ask around with the people I have acted with or auditioned for. Maybe find some information on voice modulation or something.
County Seat Players will hold auditions for The Philadelphia Story by Philip Barry.

This Broadway hit starred Katharine Hepburn as Tracy Lord of the Philadelphia Lords, an inhibited and spoiled daughter of the privileged. Divorced from C.J. Dexter Haven, she is engaged to a successful young snob. A gossip weekly sends a reporter and a camera woman to report the wedding arrangements and they are injected into the house by Tracy’s brother who hopes to divert their attention from father’s romance with a Broadway dancer. Tracy finds herself growing interested in Connor, the fascinating reporter. At the end of a pre wedding party, Tracy and Connor take a moonlight dip in the pool and meet her ex husband and finance on their way back to the house. The following morning her intended agrees to forgive her, but his smug attitude enrages Tracy and she breaks off the engagement. Connor offers to marry her, but she turns him down and remarries Dexter, to the satisfaction of everyone.
Performances will be September 20-23 & 27-30, 2007
9 males, ages 20 – 50’a
