    Was Real Close

    I used to act. I did off broadway. Commercials. Some extra work. I loved it. I even went to college for theatre until i had to work and switched to a theatre minor. That was my heart. But that like so many other things went out of the window when i met my husband. How i miss that...

    It'S So Close I Can Taste It.

    Today I'm leaving for New York for two weeks for several auditions with several theaters. I couldn't be more excited. I'm only 16 and living the dream. I hope to move there shortly if everything goes well, but it's scary. There's so much competition. I may be the best in a small...

    I'm a sophomore and I am on a path to stardom.

    My voice is amazing and I am an excellent performer. In the fall of 2018, I want to attend the Boston Conservatory, and major in musical theater. The only problem is my mom and dad think my dream is "far fetched" and think I should be something "normal". Any tips ? Possibly how...

    Fame Unimportant.

    I've wanted to be on broadway since I can remember. I just love everything about it. I can't see it ever happening for me because I'm not classically pretty and I'm not skinny but not fat, just average and kinda out of shape. I have dermatillamania and I'm kinda shy. I really don...

    Broadway Dreams

    I love daydreaming of me starring in Broadway. My favorite musicals are Hairspray and Legally Blonde, and i'm making a musical out of my favorite book series. I, unlike most people, am working hard to reach my goal. I watch the Elle Woods auditions of MTV so I can practice...

    I love singing and acting.

    Theater is my passion and I've had offers I'm excited but I don't know what others will think. "i know every song inside and out and this is all I want" if anyone has advice or tips I'm always open to them. "People can surprise you"

    Addicted to the Stage

    I am addicted to performing. My dream is to be on Broadway because the stage is the only place I have ever felt like I belong. I was in my high school production of Les Miserables and played Eponine, and it was the single most amazing experience of my life. The crowd, the praise...

    It's a dream come true,

    to be on Broadway, truly. It doesn't bring a downfall to my encouragement when someone says I can't do it. Can't was never a word in my dictionary, because you can do anything you want to. As a child, I was very frightened I would reveal my voice to people, making me think some...

    I Want It More Than Anything

    I used to be majorly into fashion. I think it's because that's what people told me I was good at. I loved performing and did it all the time, but I felt like I was bad at it, so it was never my main focus. I used to have this middle school choir/musical director who was so mean...
