Despite my concession to NaNo failure, I got a nice surprise this morning. Auditioned for Twelfth Night last week and have been offered Maria. Since she's a character I've always wanted to play, I'm extremely happy about it. I don't get on stage that often, being an awkward age (otherwise known as too old for most parts, but not yet qualified to play real dodderers), so this is a real treat.
Now I too will have to learn some lines. Performances are in March, which is a short rehearsal period. Wish us well.
