I was going to wait until I had more details to tell you this, but I'm too excited to wait.
When I switched my phone back on after rehearsal today, I managed to snag just enough of a signal in the parking lot for it to say I had a message. The area code was for Cedar City. "No way," I thought.
About 10 seconds worth of the message had downloaded before it lost signal again (I get nothing at school), just enough for me to hear:
"Hello, (my name)! This is Charles Metten from the Cedar City New Summit Play Competition. We've been reading and studying your play, Making Waves-"
And then the message cut off. Damn you Mountain Town and AT&T for your weak rural signal!
I hopped in my car and drove 10 miles until I picked up a signal again.
"We love it. It's one of the best plays we've read in a long time. We're very excited to do a stage reading of it this summer as part of our festival. Call me back at (number) as soon as possible so we can talk about dates."
It was after 5. I tried anyway, and his secretary suggested I call again tomorrow, which I will during my consultation. But when I gave her my name she said, "Oh, of Making Waves, right?"
I'll post more when I know more, I promise.
