I went to see a show today with one of my students from last year in it. I have seen two students in shows there. Seeing her perform brought back so many memories of how I loved theater when I was younger. I happened to look in the program and see the upcoming shows for 2009-2010, and the show set for March 2010 was one I was in when I was in high school! Back then, though, I wasn't a good singer nor necessarily the best actor. The acting teacher did not make the best impression on me, though, as she said I didn't meet the level the other students were at. I was an extra in the show, basically- the last person on the roster. For some reason, I want to try out for the March 2010 show, but two things scare me a bit- 1. Will they actually cast me?! I've never performed in community theater. The last time I attempted acting (college), I impressed my teacher in the big show, but I still did not do as well as a number of my classmates. 2. Will I have time for it?! I am a fourth grade teacher, School Advisory Council member, and one of Scholastic.com's advisors this year. So much of my life outside of school is... school, normally. What would you do in my situation?
