ever been on stage?
Let's see...

at 7 I was the Wolf in Little Red Riding Hood.
at 8 I had to do stand-up comedy (horrible jokes)
at 11 I was doing some weird thing for our National Day celebrations (something to do with waving a flag which is horrifically ironic considering I'm just a Permanent Resident)
at 13 I was an extra in our adaptation of 'Romeo + Juliet'...I had the crap beaten out of me by Mercutio's gang
at 14 I played the lead in a pseudo-intellectual play I co-wrote regarding urban isolation and alienation - I represented the rural farmer which was being eradicated by urban migration and things like that...no one understood it.
and this year I played my first female role (I'm in an all-boys high school).

summer camp production of Grease when I was 14. I was an extra and had to dance and hold hands with a boy who was at least a foot taller than me if not more.

I think that's about it.

MissVelvetDress_75 05-17-2003 03:47 AM

yes as a child, a teenager and when i was in college.

u2popmofo 05-17-2003 03:48 AM

Yeah, for various music related things from childhood through early college.

Yep. I was in a couple plays in 7th and 8th grade (best supporting actor in 7th! :D), then I was in the big talent show production in 11th (solo piano) and 12th grade (piano with a friend dancing). I was on stage plenty of times in college - countless choir concerts and smaller piano recitals, several competitions, accompanying a few friends for their string recitals, plus my own two solo piano recitals.

Since college the closest thing I've done to being on stage is providing the music for my brother's wedding. :)

I was never nervous acting on stage or being part of an ensemble on stage, but performing solo terrified me at first. The first few times my foot would shake almost uncontrollably the entire time I was at the piano.

Oh and I played 'Alderman Greedy' of Hamelin in a primary school play about the pied piper.

My 3 years of high school being in an all girls chrous group, we would sing twice a year. At Christmas and a Spring concert.

nbcrusader 05-17-2003 10:42 AM

Never as a student.

Now, I am on stage nearly every weekend for Sunday school dramas.

Bonochick 05-17-2003 11:23 AM

I performed in choir concerts every year I was in school. My senior year of high school, I was in a small singing group in school that was one of those audition-only groups. I was thrilled I had gotten in...I'd always wanted to try but was too chicken until my senior year. In my junior year, I was in The Sound Of Music. I also was in a skit for the Shakespeare Festival during my freshman year.

While it wasn't onstage, I also sang the national anthem at a basketball game. That was the largest group I ever sang acapella for. I don't think I have that voice in me anymore...I'm out of practice. :sigh:

I miss performing!

I know i did more but the ones that stand out for me are these...I took this drama shit really seriously.

10th grade:

My friend and I did Lie of the Mind for a 2 person serious for Drama Festival...took 3rd place out of 90 high schools.
Hey I can act!:ohmy:

11th grade:

Did a musical called Working. I didnt sing. I was an extra I guess. I was one of those trucker whores who just danced around. I didnt get to do much that year.

12th Grade:

I directed and also played a part in Extremities. I had to cut it down to 20 minutes for a certain scene for a grade to finish out high school. I chose to do the fireplace scene. My lead won for best actress, while I was nominated for Best Director. I didnt get it, but I still think this is one of the best accomplishments I have ever pulled because of the controversy I caused in high school.

Aahhh the memories!
