Guy returned from theatre last night in tears; he didn’t get the part he auditioned for. He has been part of a local youth theatre group for 2 years now, and both times he has had a fairly substantial role. This time however he “only has 3 lines, no singing, and loads of dancing” I have every faith in the director’s choice, and know that dancing is the thing he needs to work on most, if he wants to be a “triple threat” (no, I’m not a pushy parent, he just loves theatre arts) but it is so hard to sit back and watch him deal with rejection at such an early age. And he has the perfect hair colour to play the part he auditioned for too!
