While my time here at Marymount Manhattan has been great, I have gone through more disappointments than I can count. I have auditioned for 14 main stage shows and was not called back for one of them. Not to mention all the directing projects and other projects going on within the school, which I did get called back for a few but was not cast. All I wanted was a chance to perform at this school, and to be on that stage, feel the lights, see the people in the crowd, and just get the fulfillment of being in a Marymount production. I just wanted the experience. But I guess I got other experience. The experience of rejection, which is a big part of this theatre business. I know that I can be successful in this world of theatre, tv, and film- and no one will care if I was in any of my college productions. But I just wanted the experience. That is all I wanted. No one just really gave me the shot. It’s disappointing. Especially because this is an educational environment. But maybe they were teaching me something different. Who knows? Love ya Marymount, but you disappoint me a lot sometimes. But you know what? Everything happens for a reason, and I have bigger and better things coming my way.
