    I wouldn't need an appointment or call them ahead of time, right? I can just show up? Also, remind me what time its at and where. I know it was posted but I really am in no mood to read through and look for it as I have not been keeping up with this thread too much. Thank you. I am still trying to decide.

    No appointment needed. Auditions are 10:00 AM on Friday Sept 23 at Screenland Studios. The address and COMPLETE information is in the very first post from Fozzie on this thread, so just go to the beginning and you'll have the most comprehensive information available to us.

    Pawncracker, just as an aside, there's no guarantee that Kevin Clash and Jane Henson will be there, although it is believed that SS will be represented. Kevin & Jane were at the NY auditions, but they might send someone else to LA.

    Thanks, Jinx. i saw the first post, just wasn't sure if there was anything else in the middle of all these posts, like updates and things. Thanks again. :)

    We all owe Fozzie a debt of gratitude, as all updates to information have been made in that single post, specifically so we wouldn't get lost in the thread!

    Thanks Foz!

    Yeah, thanks to you too, Kevin! I appreciate your assistance. It would be really nice to be able to meet up with you all if nothing else. If I do that though, I may as well audition. It would be great audition experience even though it is a little different than I am used to. I would also get to say that I auditioned to be a Muppeteer. Ha! We'll see...

    Now, Bear, it looks like you need to hear one of Jim Henson's favorite songs...

    If just one person believes in you,
    Deep enough, and strong enough, believes in you...
    Hard enough, and long enough,
    It stands to reason, that someone else will think
    "If he can do it, I can do it."

    Making it: two whole people, who believe in you
    Deep enough, and strong enough,
    Believe in you.
    Hard enough and long enough
    There's bound to be some other person who
    Believes in making it a threesome,
    Making it three.....
    People you can say: believe in me.....

    And if three whole people,
    Why not -- four?
    And if four whole people,
    Why not--more, and
    more, and

    And when all those people,
    Believe in you,
    Deep enough, and strong enough,
    Believe in you...
    Hard enough, and long enough

    It stands to reason that you yourself will
    Start to see what everybody sees in

    And maybe even you,
    Can believe in you... too!

    I leave Memphis tomorrow morning. Tonight by 6 pm is the last time I'll check my emails before Sept 26th, so if you want to go to the Saturday Night Dinner, e-mail me today: fozziemup@aol.com. If you don't let us know ahead of time, we can't guarantee a reservation (but we'll do what we can to work you in of course).

    Also, this isn't open to just people who audition, it's open to everyone who is a Muppet Fan and/or a Puppeteer (bring your puppets)! So, e-mail me and come on out!!

    Sadly, I can't make it on Saturday night. But for a very good reason. Some friends were producers on "The Amazing Race" and they won Emmy's on Sunday! They were planning a Mardi Gras party for Katrina Relief this Saturday anyway and now it has become a combo Mardi Gras/Congratulations party.

    But I hope to at least meet some of you on Friday!

    Hope to meet you out there, too!

    Does anyone have any plans for Friday night? I guess Muppet Vision 3-D is closed for a while, so my plans went flopping out the door. Anyhow, just wanna have some fun that night while I'm in the city. Food would be great, but nothing too pricey y'know?

    To Fozzie and everyone else, can't wait to meet you all at the auditions, have fun Saturday night!

    It's not closed, eh? The ride next to it is having renovations. It should still be open.

    To everyone going (yourself included, KermieBaby) GOOD LUCK! I hope you do awesome and have some fun. :attitude:
    And Bear, I don't know if you are going or not, but I think it would be a good oppornitunity for you, and I think you owe it to yourself to go. Even if you don't go far, you do get a chance to be seen (possibly) by Sesame Workshop, and that's what you've really wanted to do, isn't it? So try. **smiles**
    EVERYONE ROCK ON. :sing:

    Muppet Vision is open, despite construction going on near the attraction.

    Thanks, Mrs. Pepper. You're sweet. I am leaning more and more towards going to the audition. I mean, what's to lose?

    Thank you, and it's TRUE. It's totally worth the experience.
    GOOD LUCK! I know you'll be awesome.

    :flirt: :sing:

    And have a Janice and Floyd to take with you. **grins**

    All I'm sayin' for now:

    Made it through the whole first day, and folks have NO worries about half-breed voices...the ones I heard there were GREAT! One guy who posts here sometimes has Jim Henson voices SPOT-ON, gang.

    Disneyland is great fun, the event at the MTR was awesome (Met Brian, Heather, and Lisa Henson) and the Saturday Night dinner was a blast. All of us with our own puppets ended up behind a long table and performing for a group of folks in the restaurant! It was hilarious! Everyone there was awesome, hospitality by my friends from here who live there was great, and I love those folks!
