So I auditioned for Murder Ballad at my school kind of on a whim, and I got a callback. Which is cool and all except I didn’t expect it and it’s a really small cast with only two girls and two boys and I have to learn 4 songs for the callback tonight and two of them have a belt up to an E5. A belt. To an E5. Are you kidding me? I can’t do that. I don’t know why they called me back cuz I can’t do that but oh my God I’m going to try anyways.
