  1. That was me for Anything Goes. I was PERFECT for Reno Sweeney and everyone thought I was going to get her, but I guess I was just too perfect!

  2. I thought I would be Touchstone in “As You Like It.” All my friends thought so too. Ended up with Le Beau, but also Touchstone’s Understudy. NO REGRETS

  3. This was me when I was auditioning for Legally Blonde. Everyone thought I was going to get Chutney, but I was just too good I guess!

  1. OMG!! I did Aladdin Jr. recently and 33 girls auditioned… 3 guys auditioned. Only one of them could sing but refused to be Aladdin… that was fun! Speaking that I had to sing “A Whole New World” with someone who is tone deaf!!!

    • Same!! A whole bunch of girls auditioned last year with me when I did Aladdin. Only 4 guys auditioned, and 3 girls ended up playing Iago, Genie, and Jafar.

  2. This is literally panto auditions last year 😂 10 guys and 170 girls for 30 parts (half guys half girls) 😂
