Just Call Me Maria
Sammi was shaking with anticipation waiting for a call from the casting director of West Side Story to see if she was going to land the role of Maria. It was a small theatre production but she was willing to do anything to get a shot to be on stage again and Sammi wasnt the typical person to be casted for the role because she has blue eyes and pale skin, the only thing she had going for her was her dark brown hair.
The phone rang.
Sammi froze for about 3 seconds then answered.
"Hello. Is this Sammi Miles?" The voice asked.
"This is." Sammi replied.
"My name is Sarah Upland the casting director for West Wide Story and miss I happy to inform you that you will be portraying the side of the Sharks as Maria!"
Sammi couldnt breathe.
"ma’am?" Sarah questioned.
"Im here, sorry I just cant believe it! My first role in NYC! One step closer to Broadway! eep!" Sammi exclaimed.
Sarah chuckled “we all are excited to work with you on this production. We have a meeting on Saturday at noon and you will meet the rest of the cast and your understudy.”
" I cant wait! Ill see you and everyone else on Saturday! We meet at the theatre right?" Sammi asked.
" Yes ma’am, have a great evening and anymore questions just contact me at this number." Sarah responded.
"Okay thank you and you too." Sammi hung up the phone and let out a big squeal in excitement.
