    Amature Theatre

    I have been very active in amateur theatre playing many roles such as newspaper editor, detective, gangster, retired vaudeville actor, priest all male roles. Now I would like to try a female role. I hope I can find one. I have done acting in Hudson OH and Oberlin OH.

    Directing is ******* amazing,

    as well as stage management. I've been doing both for two years. In my new theatre class, I'll have to act for the first time (with the exception of a classroom level Anne Frank production, in which I was Anne) and I'm sort of nervous. I'm sure I'll do fine, though, and it'll...

    I have been acting in church plays

    since I was 8, but my serious love of acting didn't come until I was cast in a local theatre group's performance of The Jungle Book at age 11 (a seemingly massive part at the time, I had four lines in the entire play lol). From then on I've been acting whenever I'm given the...

    I love acting I love doing it

    for myself rather than wanting to please the audience. I know it may sound selfish but that's the way I feel things. When I act when I'm on stage you exorcise my own emotions my own experiences I love the thrill the adrenaline the challenge the power the control and not having a...

    Keeping It Alive

    I didn't really get to be in many productions in HS, probably because I proved to be invaluable backstage. I never get the chance in college, but I did get to learn so much stage managing countless shows. Now I'm in a po-dunk town where there was no drama program. Now, 5 years...

    I can't express my love

    for theatre. Acting is humbling and being on stage gives me chills. I feel so comfortable on stage. Even directing plays are fun. Both directing and acting can be very stressful but it's so rewarding to see the smiles on the audiences faces at the end of the show. It's rewarding...

    I've always loved theatre, and growing up I'd always hoped I'd be able to do something with it someday. Right now, I'm fortunate enough to be studying it at my first choice university. Growing up, I didn't have a lot of opportunity to participate in community theatre because my...
