Olivia Knight [Draco]
Well, it's an attempt.
Tue May 27, 2014 22:08

A smaller musical to Olivia sounded like a bad, bad omen. She was not terribly confident in her abilities, chalking up her lead role the prior year to fortunate voice typing, and she was fairly certain that Addi had to have realized her mistake by now and was not planning on issuing Olivia another substantial role anytime soon. But with only six characters for certain in the musical, that meant every character was substantial. Which could only go badly for her.

The brunette had never seen a musical in which people were cut, but she was certain there could be an exception. After all, there were quite a few people here. What if they all wanted roles? Olivia could imagine the sad faces of those who lost out when the cast list went up. And certainly she would be among them.

Nonetheless, she filled out the form. Just in case.

Name: Olivia Knight
Year: Sixth
Height: Five feet, three inches
Voice Part (if known): Mezzo-soprano
Desired role(s): Anything
Previous experience: Silly girl/Napkin in “Beauty and the Beast”, Little Pig #3/Ensemble in “Shrek”, Doody in “Grease”, and the Baker’s Wife in “Into the Woods”

When it was her turn to audition, the sixteen year old presented herself with assurance. Acquired stage presence had adapted into an air of confidence, even when she did not feel confident at all. “Hello. I’m Olivia Knight,” she smiled. Addi obviously knew her, but she introduced herself not for her benefit but for Mr. Tennant’s. “I’m going to sing ‘Funny Honey’ from Chicago.”

Olivia had done research when selecting her song. This particular number seemed to be a woman praising her husband for covering a crime she committed, but then turning on him when he revealed the truth. If nothing else, it was an interesting song. She liked the way it made her voice sound, bluesy and old. Rather different from the style of this musical, but hopefully it would showcase her diverse abilities.
