On the cast list being posted

I made it.

I'm Lotty. In Enchanted April.

And it's kind of...a lead. Or it least it feels more like a "lead role" than any other role I've ever played. I've been in several dozen productions, and I'm often the mom, the comic relief, the quirky friend, etc. I had a few leads towards the end of high school, but there, I was a big fish in a small pond. (I hope that doesn't sound snobby...I feel the opposite. I'm saying I was only seen as talented because of my surroundings, not based on whether or not I was a very developed actor. I feel like I'm just digging myself deeper here...you know what I mean.)

But for my last semester of classes on BYU-Idaho's campus, I have the incredible opportunity to play this amazing role in this beautiful play, with incredible people. (My husband being one of them...he was cast as, well, as Lotty's husband. I'm serious. We get to be husband and wife in the play.)

I'm still processing this, I think.

When does this play get staged? I would love to migrate up to Rexburg to see the Chapmans!!!

If I still lived in Rexburg I'd totally go, and I don't even care how creepy that would be.
