BHS has decided to do "Oklahoma" as the spring musical this year to celebrate our state's centennial. Auditions for the show happened last week and all of the kids who auditioned were anxiously awaiting the final cast list which was posted Friday evening.
Since I have 2 kids who are always auditioning for stuff, I get to be a part of all the speculation, predictions, and excitement that always happen after auditions. Luckily this time, the wait between auditions and the final cast list being posted wasn't very long at all.
The kids who auditioned were told that the cast list would be posted by 6:30pm Friday evening. So, after the Friday afternoon call-backs several of them went to hangout and have dinner. Then, when it got close to 6, Brad decided to head on over to the school to wait for the list to be put up.
Now...Brad auditioned for the male lead, "Curly" and one of his best friends, Britney, auditioned for the female lead, "Laurey". They both felt like they did pretty well in auditions, but then again, so did everyone else. They had some really stiff competition. All they could do was just sit back and wait for the final decision.
Brad arrived at the school just as the cast list was being posted. Now once the list is posted, an observer will see a wide array of emotions which range from being ECSTATIC, EXCITED, and THRILLED to DEPRESSED, SAD, MAD and UPSET. Believe me, I have learned to just brace myself for either extreme because I have dealt with them all over the years. Unfortunately I hadn't arrived in time to snap a picture of Brad's reaction when the cast list was posted but I'm sure it was a dooooosey.....because.....HE GOT THE LEAD! Wooo Hooo!! Just call him "Curly" the singin' cowboy! Yeee haw!
Shortly thereafter, the other kids started arriving. Brad spotted his buddy, Britney, heading down the hallway to check out the list so him and another kid started running down the hall towards her to mess with her a bit.
Finally, they let her go and she is able to scan the list for her name. (Isn't her red hair GORGEOUS?!)
YYYEEEAAA!!!! GREAT NEWS for Britney too!! SHE LANDED THE LEAD FEMALE ROLE!! And then out come the cell phones! Gotta spread the good news!
So....Brad & Brit will once again play each other's "love interest". (They also played "Belle" & "The Beast" last summer in the CMT musical Beauty & the Beast) They were standing around talking about how they will probably have to "kiss" this time and Brad starts teasing her by licking his lips kinda like he did here... (Poor Brit!)
It should be a fun show so mark your calendars for May 4 & 6 to see these two perform together once again.
