Class Assignment: New Year's Resolutions

new years resolutions-saidaonline

It's three weeks into the New Year. They say that if you've been been able to keep your New Year's resolutions for three weeks, the chances of you succeeding in your goals increases exponentially. When the cast and musicians came back from the break, we asked them what their resolutions were for the new year. Many of them mentioned that they wanted to keep in better touch with friends from home that they've neglected as a result of living on the road. Hope some of these can inspire you and keep you on track with your goals. How are you guys doing with your resolutions? We'd love to hear from you!

Anthony Lee Medina: My New Years resolution is more of a birthday gift to myself. This year I decided that from New Years day until my birthday (April 8th) I am going to be very respectful which for me means eating healthy, working out on a daily basis, and going back to my vegan diet

Christy Altomare: My new years resolution is to be a better friend to people I have fallen out of touch with while I have been on tour. : )

Krystina Alabado:
1) Of course, stay fit and in shape. Gym at least every other day, no matter how tired I am.
2) Keeping my blog, facebook, and website much more up to date :)
3) Keeping in touch with old friends from home more than I do.

Sarah Hunt:
My new year's resolution, since this tour is coming to an end, is to finally convince Papa Bessel to stop beating me... Really!?! After 600 shows you would think he'd have learned violence is NOT the answer.

Marques Walls:
My New Year's resolution is to return my phone calls in a timely fashion.

Taylor Trensch:
My first resolution is to depend less heavily on the Internet by using it less frequently. Two: I want to read more. Lastly, I'm going to refrain from eating nasty, greasy food after shows.

Andy Mientus:
In 2010, I want to lessen my impact on the environment so I'm going to try to live more sustainably- buying sustainable clothing, eating local and vegan, etc.

Alan Stevens Hewitt:
I didn't have a resolution per se this year, but I did wish for the sustained health and well-being of my family and friends, and I gave thanks to the cosmos for conspiring to provide me with the tools and opportunities that allow me to do what I do.

Kristen Rosenfeld:
I have never made a New Years resolution, and this year is no exception.

My new years resolution:
1. be more confident, and become a stronger singer/actress.
2. Gain some muscle
3. eat less candy/chocolate (which i'm sadly failing to do)

I must say I found Sarah's resoltion to be offensive. I know it was most likely a joke, but still. With the following of the show and victiums of asult I don't think it was the best choise to say such a thing.

First Anonymous--I don't think Sarah meant to belittle any victim of assault. How could she suggest such a thing when she has to put herself in that perspective every single night? The point of her post was that violence is not the answer, she was just doing it in her humorous way. If you knew Sarah, you would know she cares so deeply about these issues.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How can I send fan mail to the cast?

If you just want to send a quick note to all the cast members telling them you appreciate their work, you can email us here at totallytruckedblog (at) gmail (dot) com. I will be happy to forward your email to the cast, but to preserve their privacy, it is unlikely they will email you back (I will, though).

You can also send individual performers fan mail and care packages care of the theatre at which we are currently performing or will be performing. Go to the theatre's website (listed above), find their mailing address, write the actor's name as well as "Spring Awakening" and send c/o the theatre. Remember, we are often at these theatres for only a week so make sure to allow for delivery times. It's a better bet to send it to the theatre we will be going to next as they can always hold packages for us until we arrive. Letters received late will not be forwarded to our next location.

2. How Can I Audition for Spring Awakening?
From time to time, we have open calls in larger cities across the US. We will post any additional open calls here. Subscribe if you havn't already to keep informed. In the meantime, we've made it easy for you to submit yourself singing a folk/alternative rock song on video. Go to: http://www.springawakening.com/videoauditionsubmission/ Make sure your submission is less than 500 MB and is one of the accepted formats. Your screen should change and you should get a confirmation that says your submission has been received. Trust us, people are called in this way. Lucas Wells was cast because of an online submission!

3. How Do I Score On Stage Seats?
That is really up to the individual theatres. Most of them won't release the seats until just before performances because they want to make sure the house is sold first. Some do so online, although the ticketing systems they have in place often can't accommodate our unique seats onstage. Most of them are available only at the box office (though you can purchase them for a performance in the future). The Guilty Ones Street Team members have the rights to purchase these seats before the general public. Any seats left over will be released to the box office and may also be purchased as part of rush tickets (discounted, day-of tickets).

4. How Do I Join The Guilty Ones?

The National Guilty Ones Street Team is a way for fans of the show in each of our tour stops to help us spread the word. You will get access to parties, meet and greets, and other special events while meeting new friends who share your passion for the show, all while gaining some valuable marketing experience. You must be at least 15 yrs old. Email your contact info to nationalguiltyones (at) gmail (dot) com.

5. Can I Get Discounts?

From time to time, a theatre may offer us discounts to send out to our fans. We will post any here on the blog. Subscribe now!

6. Who runs this site? This site was created for fans to stay connected with our touring cast and follow their adventures around North America. Ideally, it would be in the voice of the cast members. Unfortunately, our cast members are often too tired or busy to post lengthy blog posts on a regular basis. Company members will contribute a post from time to time and every month we will have a compiled blog post that most every company member will participate in. The other stuff like updates, etc, will be posted by me. My name is Pun. I work for the production, love this show, its cast, and our fans, and I'm so very glad you're here!

Co 231 W 39th Street Suite 1200 New York, N.Y. 10018.
