    Things I didn't have time to talk about/draw but wanted to mention:
    -when the curtains fell during intermission we liked to dance goofily in the dark right on the stage to get rid of the stage fright jitters in preparation for act 2 haha
    -group trip to Denny's after the last day of the shows. Every time.

      I’ve been in theater a while, and I’ve had to deal with that before. One play, I had gotten the role of Annie in the musical Annie for a community theater, however someone playing one of the minor characters quit all because he didn’t like his part. Like dude really?

    5:54 that’s the same chocolate I was selling at my high school back then! My entire first box of chocolate bars were sold to someone from my church and the next day, my chorus teacher was so surprised by this that he gave me another one! I felt like I was given a reward or something!
    Speaking of theater, in my senior year in high school, my Musical Theater class, in which most of the students were part of my chorus class, started working on a musical called Bye Bye Birdie. It’s place around the sam period that Elvis Presley was popular in the USA from the 1950’s-1960’s this musical’s version of Elvis was a man named Conrad Birdie. Long story short, he’s heading off to the army and the two main characters plan on making a Birdie perform before he heads off. I can’t explain the entire story but it’s on CHclip if you wanna see for yourself. You can also find the playlist of my class actual play in the Freedom High School Hillsborough playlist! Because of my foot surgery back in December of 2015, I was limited to side characters. You’ll see me with a crutch basically. In my first scene, I pretended to be an old man and in my big scene, I played a barber named Charles F. Maude. There was a song in that scene but my chorus teacher cut it out in the end. I had a wonderful time back then and I miss those guys so much! My Chorus and Musical Theater classes were the only good things that came out of my high school!

    Oh man, this was a great story! I actually got into theatre by accident in high school. I had signed up for a debate class that got canceled and the counselor suggested that they needed people in the theatre arts class, so I said “sure, why not?”
    Well, I went on to have a 15-year theatre career with over 50 productions in several cities. I even got my mother interested, who went on to start her own award-winning regional company. To say that theatre had an impact on my life would be a gross understatement.
    Your anecdotes brought back so many memories! Salty actors giving other actors unsolicited notes, to that one slacker who never goes off-book, to post-show trips to Denny’s, it was very relatable.
    Anyway, thanks for sharing your story! I moved to a new city for work right before the pandemic started, so I’ve been out of the theatre scene for some time, and it was very refreshing hearing somebody tell the tale of their first foray into acting. I’m so glad it was such an enriching experience for you, and wasn’t sullied by that “the worst” girl.
    Believe me, I have taught middle and high school students, and there’s one like that in every class. I’ll never understand why teenagers are so determined to make one-another miserable…

    I was casted as the lead in my first play ever in 6th grade. It was absolutely terrifying, especially since my other cast mates were all in 7th or 8th grade, and they all wanted the role. It also doesn’t help that I was shy asf. I ended up learning all my lines though, and although we missed some cues during our shows, it was an amazing experience and I’m still doing theatre now!

    I joined theatre for the 1st time in 7th grade, when my general anxiety about stuff was at its peak. and I gotta say, something about the way you just drop your shame at the door when you step into a meeting really helped me. like, if you look or feel stupid, chances are so does everyone else and it's honestly so fun

    I'm in a Drama Club in my school and that means I am always part of a drama play production. (Until Primary 6) (I chose this club) But since there is a pandemic this year, we had to record it ourselves and send it to the teacher then the editors (the editors are students that volunteered to be editors) would have to piece together the clips. So now the play turned into a series. It was in Episode form.

    In 5th grade, we did the play of Olivia. I decided to audition for a main role, but backed out last minute due to anxiousness. I ended up auditioning for a smaller role, although I messed it up.. a lot, I stuttered loads, and I kept forgetting to speak loud. The only good point about my audition, was that I was the only one who memorised the lines! I ended up getting the role of Emily, a poor orphan girl who goes out and collects for charity. During our auditions I began to speak louder, and even though I only had 4 lines, multiple people complimented my improvement. On the night of the our 2 plays, I was extremely nervous while getting dressed, while doing my makeup I kept having to ask people if it looked alright and if the night was going to go ok. Emily came in on scene 4 and 5, and during scene 3, I started to feel more comfortable… then the fire alarm rang. It was a false alarm, but still shook me a lot and my delivering was a bit jittered in scene 4 but in scene 5 I eased up. I’ve always enjoyed theatre, but I get extremely stage-fright, that is the main reason that I struggle with progressing in my guitar and piano.

    I can relate so hard to this one. I took theater just recently in my senior year - and it was the best decisions I had ever made. I started on tech crew but decided to audition for the last show of the year. Also can’t believe how similar the dropout experience was - We also had a dropout… except that mine had 3 dropouts. It was definitely an experience to pick up extra roles but we made it through.

    Dude. I had worse vision than my father for like, half my life until I got laser eye surgery. I wore glasses through the entirety of middle and high school, and I would also take them off when I was on the stage.

    My high schools “Bethany” wasn’t outwardly rude but you could tell she was entitled and desperate to get the directors attention. Unfortunately for the rest of us, my director never really cared about how the actors behaved outside of rehearsals and since she always went all out, he ended up casting her more. He also had a bit of an issue in that he would really only cast kids in lead roles who were also in his chorus class and I never had any interest in that class so my chances of getting a lead were very slim despite being just as talented as the other kids along with having a lengthy list of past performances.

    When I was in school, we did one or two plays of some sort every year since we were small. I was in almost every one of them, I often for important secondary roles like the Witch or the Servant, I was the Rose in "le petit prince". It was fun! I preferred these roles to those which required loads and loads of words to learn.

    I've been playing cello for years now, and I at some point played with a pianist. She told me that eating some chocolate (especially dark chocolate) before playing on stage can help play better. Now idk if it has an actual effect, or is it just me convincing myself that it works, but either way, it does.

    I was in a Shakespeare play before, so I know how hard it is to learn. We also had someone who didn't show up a lot, but that was mainly because he couldn't, and yet he was amazing during the show along with being a main character for one of the 3 groups (We were doing Midsummer Nights Dream, so there's a lot going on).
    Theatre is a blessing and it gives you so many skills that can help you in life. Thank you for sharing your theatre experience!

    I think storytelling falls into drama so yes, telling stories and animating them definitely falls into acting, mostly reenacting things you've already gone through, considering how captivating these videos are.

    I performed once a year for 7 years from age 6 to 13, I really loved performing and I still love it, I never really had a problem with confidence when acting and performing and it made my confidence for presenting stuff in class better but somehow after all this time I have a problem with my confidence when just normally talking in public sometimes, maybe it's because I really get focused in the thing that I'm saying and doing and don't think about the people and then when just talking This goes away.

    Oh, I LOVED to perform in school theater! We mostly done original scripts, and I've played Swamp Monster first time, Santa Claus second, third and fourth times and The God fifth time. It was super fun, except that one time when girl who played devil accidentally smash my ass with the whip during the rehearsal. The whole experience greatly helped me during student conferences in my university years

    In my previous school, we always did plays in the fall before Thanksgiving break, and musicals in spring before spring break. We did The Music Man, Aladdin, The Cat in the Hat, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory etc. We were supposed to do Beauty and the Beast last year but it got cancelled 'cause of covid. I participated in every single one of these performances and they were all so much fun.

    Speaking of Drama class, back when I was in High School I had recited a few of E.A. Poe's works. The people I recited them to have said numerous times that I should take Drama classes because apparently I am quite talented in Drama because I add my own dramatic flair to the stuff I recite. To this day, I have never joined a drama class in my life(at least to my knowledge).

    About the person who had a small role in the 2nd play and was a slacker:
    I played a fairly small role in my schools first play after COVID hit. My character was named Rach (short for Rachel). We did The Curse of Macbeth (our director paid to let us use the script and there’s nothing I can find about it. Only Macbeth) it’s about this drama class that has the notorious Mr. Beck, the gym teacher, as their substitute because Mrs. Mac (their drama teacher) was out sick. Out of everything, they choose scenes from Macbeth.
    Now, even though I played a small role that wasn’t really a main role (and by personal choice by one of the main characters and me, was friends with one of the main characters, and by personal choice by myself, had a small crush on one of the main roles because I was actually crushing on the person cast as that role but sjhfiehd) I still showed up to rehearsals everyday and worked hard to do my best with characterization and tone. Hell, I even brought some concealer for makeup crew because they didn’t have my exact skin tone. I even discussed with the mean girls things we could do (ex. In the final show, we had decided that in sync, “Claudia” and “Tiff” would push me, “Rach”, and “Jacinta” off of their seats) so seeing someone with a small role and not putting in effort to come to/participate in rehearsals really angers me because a lot goes into plays, especially Shakespeare. I learned that when learning Rach’s lines for “5 Minute Macbeth”

    My school is doing their show right now, and since I’m part of the ensemble, I decided to gave myself the job of memorizing every line of every song by practicing every day. It’s nice to know it all, but now I have the problem of having to force myself not to sing everyone else’s parts because I know them well, TOO well maybe! So I just mouth the words to myself backstage while other people sing.
