how the audition went

" Okay, Beth! You're up!"
I wobble to the stage.
Everyone is staring at me. Blergh. My no-nonsense drama teacher looks at me sternly.
" Omg is she crying?" Someone whispers.
" Omg she's crying!"
" For the love of God, I'M NOT CRYING!" *sniffs*
" Okay! Read this script, for Charalotte."
Someone shoves a paper into my sweaty hand. I'm reading with two other girls who are also auditioning. I get the smallest part.
Too soon, it's my turn.
" Line!"
"... Beth, you have the script."
" Oh um... *coughs* is that you, Timoth-"
" Alright, moving on!"
Wait... that's it?
Well, I have a feeling that I'm not going to get Charlotte...

    Ugh... I love theater, and I've never had trouble being on stage. But then out of the blue I had a major stage fright attack. It wasn't even a real audition, and I have no idea why it happened. Anyway. I can relate. *hug*

    Awww love that's okay! There is always more opportunity. Best of luck with whatever part you do get!! Remember: there wouldn't BE a show without an ensemble and supporting characters. If only the main people got cast, that would be so boring. All my hugs <3 hope you're okay!!! :)

    Once I got a part with very less lines, but they thought I was kinda good at that, so they gave me more lines!!!! I WAS SO NERVOUS, THEY GAVE A SHY GIRL A QUEEN'S ROLE? XD

    Aw I'm sorry. Auditions can be so stressful when you're put on the spot. Sorry that the director wasn't more understanding.

    I've been part of two auditions, and also I would get the smallest part. Well, good luck!

    That really sucks if it actually happened to you, and good luck! This piece is really relatable as well, I have difficulties performing when I'm 'put on the spot.'
