    Les Misérables

    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 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.

    In the Orchestra Pit, But That Still Counts

    Hello Dolly!

    I was involved with the theater in my high school 3 of my 4 years there.  Of the musicals, I have to say that "Hello Dolly!" was my favorite.Granted, that year the director found that I have two feet, and don't know my left from my right!  She and the choreographer worked and...

    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...
