Well, I've wanted to get on stage, in performance mode as opposed to janitor mode, for quite sometime. I'm taken back to my high school days like a return flight to New Orleans when I had the opportunity to act, but passed for fear of public reprisal....of my friends no longer being my friends, and from becoming one of the 'weirdos' in school.
But ahhh yes, how nice it is to be a weirdo. So I have finally grown up, to the point of a seventeen year old. Whaaa? You ask. It's nice to be taken back to replenish my need to be creative. All in the name of growth. Sometimes we must return to a previous time in order to find ourselves in the middle of that futuristic state that seemed unatenable.
Well, it's not like my role in Peter Pan is going to be improvisational. Well, improvisational at the least. Even though our choreographer, Marcus from Atlanta, let me choreograph the flag scene!!!
So this is a new thing for me, but something I've wanted to do for a long time. I have officially begun my rehearsals for my debut performance in theatre. Would you believe me if I told you I would be doing the worm at center stage during Scene 8??? I think that's the right scene. It's either 8 or 4. Geez there are lots of scenes in this show......
I so hope I don't forget those dance moves.
