    In Grade School

    We did "The Wizard of OZ"  I was a munchkin all we did was sing.  Thats about the extent of my "drama" experience I'm way to stage fright, I barely managed choir standing with other kids in the 9th grade.

    Not Shy Onstage

    I'm proud to say this because I am known to be a very shy person, yet I put myself out there. It makes me feel like a different person, a confident person. I am transformed onstage. I was in two so far, in my freshman ("Once Upon A Mattress") and...

    I Wish I Could Sing

    I've been in a couple of musicals, though my voice isn't that great. I sing best in groups, where I can let my voice blend with other people's but for some reason, the director always gives me parts where I have to sing a solo, and then I get nervous. I've been in Wizard of Oz...

    In the Orchestra Pit, But That Still Counts

    I've played in South Pacific, Pippin and Beauty and the Beast. Even though our job was to accompany the actors and we weren't on stage, I  felt we were just as much a part of the musical as the actors. I really enjoyed the parts for Beauty and the Beast and South pacific...
