Jackie Cast in Actors’ Theatre Grand Rapids’ ‘Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson’ Production
If you have been following me, you probably know I am a musical theater geek! I love the stage.
Actors’ Theatre Grand Rapids recently had audtions for “‘Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson,” a rock musical about Jackson’s presidency and his relationship with his wife Rachel.
If you aren’t familiar with the show, think “Saturday Night Live” meets Green Day. That’s the best description I can come up with.
Not only is the show hysterically funny, but it’s a limited cast, only four female roles in the cast.
I was pretty nervous going into auditions because Grand Rapids is chalk full of talented ladies. I decided to sing “Because the Night,” by Patti Smith.
I originally was happy to just get a call back for a second audition.
When they called me last night and said I landed a part, I was thrilled!
Performances of “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson” are in February, Feb. 6-22.
I’ll keep everyone in the loop on how to come check out the show!
Here’s a video of my husband and I at open mic one night singing “Because The Night,” my audition song for this show!
