Titanic Audition


So today I am auditioning for Titanic, The Experience, which is a tourist attraction here in Orlando. It is an interactive museum/Dinner Show with full scale room re-creations, memorabilia and artifacts from the Titanic. There are interactive story tellers (the role I am auditioning for) that give tours through the museum and take visitors back to the sights, sounds, and emotions of that fateful night. Sounds fun, right? Don’t worry, the museum is on dry land.

I am usually pretty calm at auditions, and don’t get the jitters. What bothers me the most is when I walk in and look around and notice that everyone else at the audition is practically in diapers! Where are the people my age? I mean, I took a break from acting to raise my kids, but I’m not THAT old. Did I miss the notice saying we had to quit auditioning for things when we turned 35? Or 30? Or even 27? Because I don’t think they are older than that. That’s ok..because every show that has a “mother” role, or “old lady”, or “grandma”….it’s mine!

Back to Titanic. So, I have to do a 1 min comic monologue…which I am still preparing. It’s almost 11 am the day of. Yes, I know. You don’t have to tell me. I like to put pressure on myself. It makes me feel like I work harder. or something. They also want us to be able to do as many of these accents as possible. Irish, British, Cockney, English High Society From 1912. Um…great. I can speak English, does that count? So, I started playing around with the accents. This is what I came up with.
