A star is born!


Okay, I have held off as long as I could and now I just have to do it! I have to brag on my son just a bit more. First, although he has never mentioned any classes to me except his acting classes he managed to get 4 A’s and 2 B’s this first semester. Now remember my son’s goal is to be a working actor on Broadway. I think there are other careers that might have offered him more job security but his life is not mine to try to control.

He was one of only 5 freshman cast in a play his first semester at college. He was fantastic in the play – okay he only had 2 lines but he was still the best! After the play he was asked by two upper classmen to be in their one acts. It was for their directing class and they get to pick their actors. He only had 8 days to learn both parts. Meanwhile there were tryouts of the second semester play.

He was cast again! One of only 2 freshmen to be cast both semesters! Finally he is in a play I want to see! He did some terrible plays in high school. Shakespeare (and lets face it, high school Shakespeare is awful most of the time). They also did the Crucible – a cheerful little play! But this is a comedy and he has a small but funny part. His best friend at college got the female lead.

After the play tryouts were over he began getting ready to auditions for the Bachelor of Fine Arts Program (BFA). Usually around 40 try out but only 12 are chosen. Of course he made it!! These 12 will be in an intensive program together for the next 3 ½ years. The last semester of the program they go to New York to put on a performance for agents and talent scouts there.

When my boy is on Broadway I will come out of hiding and maybe we can all meet in New York and go to the premier together!
