Read through: tick, next job?

Well, the readthrough was a week ago, so I've been a bit lapse in my updating. I was in Paris with Phil from Tuesday til Friday and then hid at his house this weekend as per normal. Anyway, see normal blog for that!!
It went ok. I probably didn't pick the right people to read the right parts, but I didn't know that when I picked them. I also didn't know if people like Brenda, Lisel and Chris would want to read, so didn't give them anything to read and consequently ended up reading in lots of silly little lines. And, as I suspected, it didn't flow as well being read as I think it will when you move about. It seemed very long as well, but I'm planning on editting it, so that should be ok. It didn't come across as well as I wanted it to, but some people laughed in the right places, and hopefully it'll be funnier when I've sorted it out and there's stuff like movement and facial expressions to help it along.
Anyway, I'm allowed to continue with it. I think that the committee all think I've taken on far too much, but hopefully it'll all come together. I'm not 100% convinced I'm going to be able to direct this one and act in another, but we'll see. Going to a read through for the other on Wednesday, so I'll see what I think then.
So, auditions in July sometime, post GCSEs and pre "everyone leaving the country" (including me, possibly, again see blog). Got to get my head round the script and exactly how I want to cast it this week, then set about editing the script into a manageable form and actually writing down the ideas I have in my head!!
