2 Left Feet Posted November 19, 2005 Report Share Posted November 19, 2005 I was asked to be in a local Nutcracker this year. I did Cavalier and Prince in it last year. It was choatic but I ended up enjoying it. So this year I'm asked back but not told what parts I'd be dancing. I was told to be at the studio last Saturday at 11AM for rehearsal. I showed up to learn they'd changed the rehearsal schedule and I wasn't needed. Cut to today, I show up when I was scheduled at 10:30AM. I walk in and find no one in the studio except a receptionist. She looks at me and gasps, "I was just about to call you." They'd changed the schedule again without letting me know. They moved reheardsal back two hours. I look at the new schedule and see we'd be running Act II today. Thats all and well but I haven't rehearsed anything yet! I don't know what parts I'm doing. I don't remember last year's choreography and they want me to do a full run through? I told the receptionist I'd driven 30 miles to get there, that I didn't appreciate not being informed and to have someone call me. I left and came home. Two weekends in a row I've move doctors appointments, changes my schedule around only to find they either didn't have me scheduled or they'd changed the times without letting me know. My instinct right now is not to bother doing the show. I don't want to be a prima donna but, come on, two weekends in a row they change things and don't bother calling me? It's not like there are a lot of guys on their list to call about changes. Not only is a it inconsiderate and a major inconvenience, there's also the drive time, the cost of gas, etc. I have no plans to go back today and I don't think I should until they call me to give me a correct schedule. Am I being a prima donna or should I just abandon this show altogether? Quote Link to comment
