I Have Stage Fright

The only place where you can perform without going onstage 172 People

    I only have stage fright

    when I play clarinet. The stage is home to me as an actor so that doesn't bother me. I only freak out and start shaking when I play clarinet. I sit second chair so I'm not sure why I am this way. Oh well, no big deal.

    I have stage fright so bad

    that it's almost impossible for me to sing in front of anyone even my closest friends. I love to sing and I'm not that bad at it according to people that I have gathered enough confidence to sing in front of. I've tried my best to get over my stage fright. I've even done a...

    Stepping up there. Turning around

    and finding dozens of eyes staring back at you. Look, observing, possibly judging. Who knows what thoughts are running through their minds. You stand there, ready to get it over with. You're sweating. Butterflies in your stomach. Shaking. There's a stutter in your voice. You...

    Don't Want To Mess Up

    I've been on the stage since I was little. I took dance classes for at least 8 years(starting sometime in elementary), so getting up on stage is something you would think I'd be used to. But that isn't the case. At least in dance, I'm not the only one that people are looking at...
