Entry 7: The End of Internship
A Big Thank You to Michael Cassara Casting
On March 10th, I ended my internship with Michael Cassara Casting after ten fast-paced weeks including extensive scanning, filing, running errands, making schedules, sending out appointments, answering phone calls, taking messages, helping set up auditions, watching auditions, being the reader for auditions, watching EPAs, watching showcases, and meeting a plethora of really awesome directors, producers, actors, singers, and the list goes on and on.
The last week included working with Jamie (who returned), Michael's newly-coined "Shake Shack Wednesday," viewing three showcases, viewing parts of an EPA, making my first ever trek to Astoria, helping train the next intern (Sam, an awesome person), and finally getting a hug before I left! All-in-all, a remarkable time.
Michael, thank you for everything you have done. You have given me the opportunity to get a glimpse into the world of theater and casting. More importantly, you have made this transition into the city so much smoother than I could ever imagine. Thank you for coming to see the show at Manhattan Rep. Thank you for everything you have done for me and Otterbein. Thank you.
