Last night we had a sing through for the music of "The Secret Garden" which is our next production, (in September) The music seems very sweet and endearing, I am thinking now of auditoning for Claire, or Alice, or to be an extra Dreamer!

Tomorrow (Wed 29/03/06) I have to go to my old college, as one of my tutors has asked me to play some flute for a recording for someones G.C.S.E. Music course, It will be good to see some of my old tutors, weird, but good.

Thursday 30/03/06; I have auditions for "The Secret Garden" Here's to good singing, The audition is gonna be like a workshop, I'm excited, but also nervous!!!
