I spoke to Mark, the director of “Hello Dolly” last night. I didn’t make it into the show. I am the first alternate. So if someone decides not to do it, they’ll call me. He said I did really good on my audition. Just not good enough, I guess.

I want to thank everyone for their wonderful comments, cheering me on and giving me lots of encouragement. It’s meant a lot to me. Everyone’s been so sweet, even when I was down in the dumps.

But it’s all meant to be. I am going to be getting that surgery, so it all comes together. Everything happens for a reason. Thanks, Ladies!

Update 4/6/07: I guess being first alternate has its advantages: I’ve been cast in the show! Now I have some serious thinking to do…. stay tuned.
