Alrightie, lets go way back.
My first stage performance ever was a kindergarten production of Peter Rabbit where I played the only piece of corn onstage. This upset me for some reason I don't even remember now.
First grade was my first solo experience, where I was one of four soloist mice in the show How the Mice Saved Christmas.
In third grade I was Historian #3 (destiny I now see
) and a square dancer for our musical review on American history. This was the year I was also in two musical reviews at church, one about the birth of Christ where I was a wise man (or wise girl rather) and the other titled Sermon on the Mount, where we were all on a baseball team.
Fourth grade I began doing ballet and was a girl waiting for the train station in that years ballet. That same year I was in my third and last church musical review, called Promise U (as in University).
After that school year we moved, and continued doing ballet at the studio in my new town. I was a dancer at Cinderella's ball and a snowflake that year.
In sixth grade I was almost in octupus in that year's ballet, but then I quit to start doing theater. My first show with the local community theater was a pantomine of Rudolph and the Island of Misfit Toys where I played Charlie in the Box. From there I was in several shows with the community until eighth grade, including Aladdin Jr., Annie Jr., Lion King the highlights, a musical theater dance review, High School Musical (which I regret to this day), and several smaller musical theatre reviews we used as preshows to the actual musicals.
In seventh grade (I think), I was in a production The Best Christmas Pagent Ever where I played the character of Imogene, and had great being a brat.
That same year I was in my middle school's choir, and was a member of the county middle school honor choir for all three years.
The summer before my freshman year, I was in my first big musical, Les Misérables the School Edition where I played several different roles as part of the chorus. From there I truly fell head over heels in love with musical theatre. In high school I was part of the drama club for four years and was in several shows, including Little Shop of Horrors (Ronnette), A Christmas Carol x2 (Ghost of Christmas Past both times, and Tiny Tim the second time), Threepenny Opera (Polly Peachum), Mummy Dearest (a truly awful play where I played a character named Toodles), Sweeney Todd (Chorus), and Clue (modeled after the movie version, Mrs. White). My last semester of High school I helped direct the play Every Family Has One (a truly execrable piece of theatre).
I was in my high school's Madrigal's choir my first two years of high school, and got to be a part of the county high school honor choir for two years. My freshman year, my choir was accepted to the national honor choir and got to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City. I was also in marching and symphonic band all four years and won't bore you with all the details that go along with that.
In that time I was also in another summer production with the same community theatre that I did theatre with in middle school and Les Mis with. The show was called Rancho Tesoro and it was written by our director so we were the first cast to ever perform it. I was in the chorus, and since then it has been performed once more at a theatre about an hour away from my home town. My junior year I was in a completely student run production of Jekyll and Hyde where I was a chorus member with several solos. It is, to this day, one the best theatre experiences I've ever had.
The last show I was in was a production the musical The Secret Garden at our local community college. I was a chorus member and a set mover.
Next year I'm hoping to assistant dramaturg my universities production of Tartuffe by Moliere, and be in the cast of Chicago (or whatever musical we end up doing if we can't get the rights to that one).
