Super excited to have landed the role of Yuna (from Final Fantasy X & X2) in the original and fun play, The Video Games, performing at the NYC International Fringe Festival in just two weeks!
The audition last week was hands down the most fun audition I've yet to experience, beginning with learning a stage combat choreography (10 years of combative arts training paid off), followed by cold read of sides. I had to do extensive background research prior to auditioning as I had never seen The Hunger Games (concept of the play) nor had I ever played Final Fantasy. I watched all four movies in three days (hard work) and went through a plethora of Yuna YouTube clips.
With only ten rehearsals beginning Monday August 1st, I ordered Final Fantasy X & X2 on Amazon Prime Next Day Delivery & it has arrived! I'm anxious to begin some heavy duty homework. :-)
