    I LOVE Theatre. It all started my Junior year

    in High School. I signed up for helping with the lighting for our school's fall production of Stardust. It was kinda fun. I was becoming more interested and when our spring musical came I signed up for backstage crew. While all of the techies wear all black to blend in, the...

    I just saw Fast and the Furious.

    I found it to be one of the BETTER movies in the franchise. I HOPE they leave the series the way it is and NEVER make another movie. Because the way it ended was a PERFECT ending for the or any franchise! It also seemed to have a lot more story behind it too. Which also made...

    who ALWAYS brings binoculars to the theatre, even if they're sitting really close to the stage? I do that and I'm not even sure why.

    Glass Menagerie

    I went to a local production of Tennessee Williams The Glass Menagerie (is that how it is spelt). I just felt i should see one of the classics from a classic playwrite. It was great. I've got to see more of those plays that have stood the test of time - they must be good.

    The Cast And The Crew

    So this is a picture of one of the more regular actors from my high school's Drama Club. It's funny, because with that being my first year in the Drama Club, and it being his as well (both of us were seniors), we were both quickly accepted because we knew our stuff. I've heard...

    This Is My Life.

    I spend 90% of my life in a theatre or preparing to go into a theatre or working on something for the theatre.  I'm going to be an actress, but I also like directing, doing backstage work, anything to do with the theatre.  It's my home.

    A Sacred Place

    I am not religious but a "theatre" to me is as close to a sacred place as I experience.  To me it brings together a community, no matter how small, in a chance to share together music, dance, emotion, words, and thoughts.  It is inherently political and...

    Theatres are truly amazing!

    Do not think for a second "Oh, an hour or two of boring old dialogues." NO! They act, sing, dance all to the storyline and plot! There will b moments, "Oh! What will happen now? Oh, what a suspense." I urge all readers to visit your local theatre once atleast.
