I can’t believe time flies by so quickly. This is the last week of the show that I’m in. 3 weeks sure comes and goes. I had a wonderful experience and I may do it again. I met a lot of people whom I hope to keep in touch with.
In other news I finally received copies of my first novel Braver Than Yesterday, which can be found on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. I’m hoping to have a book signing or possibly selling them in a local bookstore. So please if you haven’t checked it out yet please do so. Also my Facebook page under Melissa Rose Bushey. I’m actually thinking about changing my pen name to Missy Rose. What do you think about that? Is that weird? It’s just a thought. I feel like Melissa Rose Bushey is just too formal. I feel like I need to break it down.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday and my heart and prayers go out to the families of the Manchester victims. It’s simply terrible what is going on in this world. All you need is Love!! Take care of each other! Much love!
Hey y’all I know it’s been a little while but I’ve just been so busy. Last night was the opener for the show and it was so great! Everything went off without a hitch. I have 12 more shows to go! I’m really happy I have this wonderful opportunity to do this!
In other news my novel Braver Than Yesterday is also now on Barnes & Noble as well as Amazon so please check it out! My new novel From Within is currently in the editing process. I’ll let you know when that book is coming out!! It’s a very exciting time in my life right now and I have you wonderful people to thank for that.
Have a happy hump day!
Yesterday was my first rehearsal for the show. It was an experience. We pulled up and parked the car and walked up to the studio and opened the door. The heat whipped me right in the face. I swear it had to be like 95 degrees in the green room and we were forced to stay there for a good 15 mins along with a group of about 30 people. I thought I was going to die. Finally the door opened to the rehearsal room and we all piled in and this room was much cooler (thank God). Every chair was lined up in rows and that was for the ensemble. The chairs in the middle which were shaped like a square, were for the main actors. Our chairs all had folders on them with our names on them so we took a seat and waited for whatever was going to happen next. The director came out and said to us “you need to move your chairs so you can form around the actors” and so we did. After that was finished we sat down and we had to go around the room and introduce ourselves. Then the readings began, now I forgot to mention the asst. director came up to us and assigned some of us parts for the play just for temporary. So we’re sitting there listening to the actors do their lines and they are wonderful. Their accents are spot on and it seemed like they were doing this forever.
An hour flew by and we took a break. We were told to go over to the actual theater which was literally a skip, hop, and a jump. We arrived and there are a lot of people there. There was the cast, the people who run the whole thing and people off the street that dedicate their lives to seeing the shows and meeting the cast. They call this the meet and greet and it was very interesting. I didn’t even know that these things exist. I’m talking to people and it’s enjoyable, I have a glass of wine which made it a little more enjoyable. Then all of a sudden they tell us to go inside the theater and take a seat. The director says a few words and then we’re told to stand up and stand in front of the stage. We had to introduce ourselves to everyone which I was little nervous about but I managed. We did a Q & A session where the crowd could ask questions. 10 minutes later we went back to the rehearsal studio and sat down reading the rest of the script. I’m waiting for my turn to speak and the part never comes. I’m thinking what the hell, I thought they gave us a part. But no nothing of the sort. I was kind of pissed because I sat there for all that time and nothing. I wasn’t expecting a huge part or anything but it was almost like what am I even doing here then. It felt kind of pointless. I guess I’ll find out what happens tonight. We actually have to meet with a dialect coach because we have to learn a British accent. Don’t worry tomorrow I will continue and tell you the details of this experience. I really want to share with all of you.
9 o’clock finally came and we were allowed to depart. I was happy to finally getting out of there, I think I was freaking out all the way home to my mom. Today I’m trying to remain positive and that this will last only for 6 weeks. I have to keep that in mind. It’s just taking a lot of time. Which means no yoga, working out, cleaning my house, etc. I feel like life is put on hold for now until this is over. My writing is even put on hold which I hate to even think about it. It just gives me so much pleasure but in between work and rehearsals I don’t have the time. Anyways I will talk to you all tomorrow about tonight’s adventure.
Hey everyone! I hope everyone is having a great weekend, some of you may have a longer weekend that others but I hope you enjoy it. I also want to wish everyone a Happy Easter if you’re celebrating.
So I wanted to let everyone know that the workshops are going pretty well with the show that I’m in. It just started so it’s all fairly new to me.
Also I wanted to let everyone know that I decided to go a different route instead of Amazon. I took my novel off of there and decided to go with Barnes & Noble. I also changed the title to Braver Than Yesterday because it honestly it just makes more sense. I’m very excited about it so I hope everyone takes a peak at it. Thank you all for your love and support.
Have a great day!
It is with great excitement to let you fine folks know that I got the part! Not sure which part but I’ll be finding out Thursday night when I go there for a workshop. I’m so excited and nervous but more thrilled then anything. I always wanted to experience something like this but never really had the nerve to do it. Thanks to my wonderful mother who pushed me to do it. She’s also in it as well so that makes me super happy. She’s my best friend so who else better to do it with. I feel so proud of myself that I overcame my shyness and stepped out of my comfort zone. When you out your mind to it anything is possible!
Have a great Tuesday!
So maybe two weeks ago I had an audition to be in a show and I got a call back! I’m so excited, I’ve never done this before so I don’t know what to expect. I’m assuming when they say call back we have to audition again. I guess I’ll find out this weekend.
If anyone has any advice please feel free to tell me any! Like I said this is my first time ever experiencing something like this. Very excited though! Have a happy Wednesday!
