Well, I cast at least 50 children in Charlotte’s Web. I stopped counting after 50 and don’t really want to look, as I expected at least 10 of them to drop out and so far we are so popular that nary a one has given up on us.
I hate breaking the little hearts, and was waaay too open to casting too many, but I have a feeling that things will turn out miraculously better than we expect, as they always do.
I spoke with the co’s today about the set, and there are even delightful wonderful people willing to create the set for free, so once again I and the exciting experience of actually asking for what I wanted out of a set design. This will be the first time I’ve done this show that it has had an actual set. So much fun…
And the children – everywhere you look! My co was quite scandalized that at auditions I would break them into groups and do improvs with them, but I told him when I first wrote that I am fearless. And I guess he believes me now! And the children rose to the occasion and my hope is that everybody learned something and had a good time, and even if they didn’t get a part – oh ouch! – they will come back to us to audition next time.
