Have you ever gone to a theatrical production and gotten a strange feeling of jealousy towards the actors because of how much fun they look like they are having? Well, that’s what I felt a short while after I went to see Cathedral Prep and Villa Maria Academy’s production of In The Heights. “Wow, they look like they’re having so much fun,” I thought to myself. “But I’m not the theater type, so I’d never be able to be in a musical.” Boy was I wrong!
Chances are that you, whoever you are, have dabbled in the thought of being in a theatrical production at some point. Even if you have not, you have probably heard about how much fun they are. If the opportunity is still available, I would highly suggest that you take that opportunity. A show is a very extraordinary thing to be a part of, no matter how big or small the production is or how big your role is. Being in a show is like having a second family; everyone is for one another and fully understanding of the fact that theater calls for some pretty ridiculous behavior at times!
Theater is not for everyone, and if you really don’t want to be in a show, then don’t be in one. If you are still on the fence about it, however, don’t knock it before you try it. Give it a go. Who knows? Maybe you will find your niche on the stage.
