I was planning on not being in the winter play of A Christmas Carol put on my MPA. Like, I was planning on not. Not just not doing it, but planning on not doing it.
I was at tennis and my mom comes up and says Paul Tischer, the director, specifically requested I audition for a part that hasn’t been filled yet. I really didn’t want to, but I did. I went against my older sister and my mom and I got the part.
I am now playing the part of Ruth in A Christmas Carol. *sigh* I know it will look good on my resume and I am going to do it. But after my bout of stage fright on the last show I did just a few months ago…
And, I have lines. About 8 or somewhere around there. I don’t mind having lines in a movie or on screen, but it is so different in stage. The audience is there watching you. In film, the audience isn’t there. They see a recording of your best performance. If you mess up on stage, that was that. You can’t try again.
Not my dream in acting. I want to be filmed.
I don’t want this to be a bad experience because I have stage fright. I just need to think and believe I can do this. And I will be right.
Let’s see how this pans out, shall we?
