Dreaming the Role

When I was a teen I liked to sing along with soundtrack albums. And there were certain characters I liked to think I would one day play on stage. There was of course Annie, from Annie, Eliza in My Fair Lady and either Liesl or Maria in The Sound of Music. I'm sure there were others, but those are the ones I can think of off the top of my head. So in the privacy of my room I'd sing the songs and act them out.

And that's what Emma does in When Mike Kissed Emma. She dreams of the perfect role for herself and she spends time practicing it and dreaming of what it will be like when she gets that role.

I never did play any of those roles on stage, but Emma does. What one is it? Does she get the role she dreamed of? Only three weeks until those answers will be available to everyone!

Countdown: 21 days


  1. I wanted to be Annie and Sandy in Grease. I tap danced in 42nd Street. Does that count?

  2. Ooh - I forgot about Sandy in Grease. That was another good one. And tap dancing 42nd Street definitely counts.
