As you know I am fast approaching the opening Romeo and Juliet , which I get more and more excited about everyday. I also get a little more scared but that is mainly because adding an audience is always a nerve wracking thing. It is not so much the fear of performing in front of people that I can’t handle. It is the fact that you never know how they are going to react. What looks cool or is funny to us may not be as well received by our audience. It all is a shot in the dark. We just have to keep to the show we know and hope for the best.
In addition to Romeo and Juliet going up on February 9th, it just so happens that the small school production that my after school Drama program has been working on will be going up that day as well! That right friends! I will have one show, Alice in Wonderland, going up February 9th at 1:00 and then Romeo and Juliet going up at 8:00! Needless to say, I feel a little overwhelmed! I am trying to have faith that everything will come together, but it is a little scary.
Alice in Wonderland, is a little harder because I am responsible for the entire production. There are so many things that I feel like I am missing and I have parents that are willing to help, I am just not sure if I can make it all make sense. I am going to do what I can, which will be nothing less than my best.
That’s where I am right now. Trapped between two projects. Both amazing. Both difficult. Both promising. Both exciting.
P.S.- I deserve a prize! I have not had fast food ONCE in all of this craziness!
