I've always done behind the scenes stuff (stage managing, set design) - mostly in high school, some in college...I wish I had the courage to actually be on the stage! Definitely commend those of you who are brave enough! My place is backstage for sure

[color=royal blue]I've been in plays at school....Sound of Music, The Fantasticks, Annie.....

and the Senior Show....

In 8th grade I was such the little playwright though. For every group project we had, I'd be with my friends and we'd write plays. Luckily my "boyfriend" at the time (lol we were like 13...we were retarded....) would do anything I asked him to, so we always had at least one boy. I usually ended up being a man too though. :P Anyway my opus was my musical of Paul Revere. That was my MASTEPIECE. It was so cool. The British are coming.... we also did plays bc a lot of the time the assignment was to write another chapter to a book we had read in class.... and we did big productions.

DANG I miss that. Everyone always did what I said.

Anyway. Loveth the stage.

I was in some plays and musicals when I was in junior high and high school. Nothing after that. I was Little Nell in a in a melodrama. "Oh, Snidley!"

We had a Reporatory Choir in high school and we put on a combination play/dinner event. That was really fun. We got to dress up like Royalty from back in the Renaissance days and had a roast pig brought in on a big platter. Lots of pomp and circumstance.

i was never in them per se. wrote a few though...

my contributions to the drama department generally came behind scenes, playing in the pit orchestra. i played fore "bye, bye birdie" and "guys and dolls" and i wouldn't have traded either experiece for anything.

I just remembered being in a Shakespeare spoof skit...my class wrote it, and it sucked soooooooooo bad. I was a dancer at a party, and the whole thing was lame, so I started doing all this really funny stuff and dancing with every character I could...*lol*...everybody told me after I was the best part...I think the leads were a little pissed at me though.

This is plainly for your amusement Manda, cos I'm sure I'll never hear the end of it, maybe it'll get rid of the other tag you have for me

Yeah, I played the lead role when I was like 11 in the comedy version of Cinderella, I forget the name of the play. Basically, I was one of the ugly sisters They were the leads in this version, so there! Yeah, I was a woman once............mothers skirt, blouse, high heels, man, I felt like a woman, doo doo dooodoooo doo doodooo! Apparently we brought the house down

That was my one and only stage effort, I went into hiding after that

I loved being involved in the plays/musicals at school ...

My debut, of which I am most proud, was as the spider in "The Incy Weency Spider" in kindergarten. I was a star.

I've been in all of two plays, both in junior high. I was a cowboy outlaw's sidekick in one (won best supporting actor for that one! ), and a goody two-shoes gangster in another. Peaseblossom knows all about that one .

I was actually just in our High School production of Hart and Kaufman's "You Can't Take It With You", I played Mr Kirby. Theatre is soooo much fun. I love it! Earlier in the year I was in the show my senior drama class put on, I played some guy in a car with his girlfriend pretending he wasn't lost. The script was a bit annoying at times, but it was good fun!

I wish I had tried out for Annie when my school put it on, that's one of my larger regrets.

For drama class one year I did a monologue of Walk To The Water. That was pretty cool.

In elementary school (I went to a rather arty non-public school) I was the lead character in Christopher Fry's The Lady's Not For Burning in grade 8, and the year before that I was Malvolio in 12th Night.

I must say I do like theatre.

When I was a little cub, 3rd grade I think, we had our yearly Christmas play. I was chosen as one of 3 Kings to happen upon baby Jesus. It was a small part but an important one.

What is signifigant is that it was during the time that my mother was almost dead from lopus, in the hospital on her "deathbed". My dad still had to work at GM and still be a father to us and try to fill in for mom too.

He really couldn't afford to buy a King's costume, or did he have the time to go look for one anyway. He actually got out mom's old sewing machine and spare linen material and made me a purple and white robes of a king, with glitter on the belt and head pieces (crowns). FOr all I can remember the damn crown may have been one of those burger king crowns, but the costume ruled!

All of the mothers couldn't believe my dad had done this. My costume was better than some of their crappy ones. The only glaring oversight was that it was a little too short and you could see my cowboy boots underneath it while everybody else had sandals!

I was in Snow White as a kid. I played her lady in waiting who didn't really exist, I mean why would an abused girl have 7 little ladies in waiting? To give parts to little girls who join the Children's theatre!

I think the end of year schoolconcert and play may well have been my favourite part of primary school. I was also lucky to have a brilliant Sunday school teacher who had emigrated from England and brought her pantomime scripts with her. Each Christmas we'd rehearse a new one,it was so much fun. We did Sleeping Beauty, Dick Wittington and His Cat, Cinderella hmmm that's all I can recall. I wish they had video cameras back then. My mum used to play the piano and make all the costumes. My sister always got to be the princess and I was things like a slave or a footman or a horse or some such....teehee.
Not quite the acting you had in mind maybe Amanda, but you've brought back some fond memories for some of us.
I hope you join a theatre group or audition.
the little king in the cowboy boots awwww
to Mr zedge for getting out the sewing machine.
