    Awww, I missed the audition. I just got back from California doing the same thing. I am a professional singer (can sing the National Anthem if needed), and have worked as an extra in a movie filmed in Holland, and also been involved in commercials. I think I would definitely fit a role in the hotel scenes – age 45+…….and can send my resume with pics if it is not too late. Love to hear from you.
    Live here in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and time is flexible right now, so I can be called on the spot.

    -Could also sing the National Anthem at the football games if needed. Sung at the Monster Truck Jam events – downtown Van Andel Arena…contact me, please….
