This afternoon we got a notice that Bex has an audition at 12:15 tomorrow. That’s the good news. The bad news is that we were still in Atlanta when that script came, and it sorta fell off our radar screen (what with getting out of town and no scheduled audition date).
When the agent asked Bex if she was ready, and he got a lukewarm response (understandably), and he was not thrilled (also not surprising). So lesson learned: NOW we know that, when a script comes in, Bex needs to have the lines learned within 48 hours, even if she doesn’t coach on it until the audition is scheduled. Moving forward, in terms of getting systems into place and establishing clear lines of communication, it was a good lesson, albeit a frustrating one. It’s a part Bex really loves, too. She’d get to shoot a gun in it, which makes her happy!
The agent tells us to come to him at 9:30 tomorrow morning to prepare for the audition – great, we have to get to Santa Monica at 9:30 – what time do we need to leave for that!? At least Bex has tonight to learn the lines – of course, she’s also got class at 5:00!
