Nerve Wracking Experience A Theatre Kid

Satisfactory Essays
Audition week. The second most nerve wracking experience a theatre kid has to go through. You’re all alone on a blank stage staring at a panel of directors making a choice about the next three months of your high school experience. Although it may be scary, the directors are just your biggest fans. They want to see you succeed, and that is what everyone who walked in and faced the directors did! They are all incredibly proud of everybody who auditioned, but sadly they could not take all 70 people into the next step, callbacks. 40 people all fighting for about 7 leads is the most stressful event I can imagine.

    On March 3rd, I went to a play called Boys Will Be Boys in UNI’s Interpreters Theatre. I initially went because a friend of mine was in it and they asked me to attend. I was excited because i’ve only seen plays done by Theatre UNI, so it would be a nice change to see a smaller scale production. The theatre is located in Lang Hall. It was a very intimate theatre with little to no staging. The actors had to rely solely on a few props and their ability to act.…

    The last week before a theatrical production is colloquially referred to as “hell week.” Every aspect of the show—lights, orchestra, costumes—hurriedly comes together during this week, and mishaps are predestined to occur: a costume might tear open during dancing, or a massive wooden set piece might fall on top of someone’s head. Nevertheless, on opening night, the show miraculously comes together without a hitch.…

    The world has changed in many ways since Shakespear was living. That is because we have had new ideas, new inventions, and we have changed in how we do almost everything. Some of the main ways the world has changed is the way the audience acts at a play, how we are treated by our social status, and how the theaters looked and what went on inside of the theater.…

    When you go to a movie theater you see all kinds of different people. Whether or not it females or males, young or old, American or non-American. There are different perspectives in which the movie will be seen. I think a good example would be the movie 2012. It is a science fiction disaster film directed by Roland Emmerich and distributed by Columbia Pictures. 2012 was a global film that all people were interested to see. This movie came out in 2009 and when it was in the making in 2008, all of my friends were already talking about the movie but what really surprised me were the reasons that they were going to see the movie for. Benjamin Trujillo’s, a family friend, reason to go see the movie was so that his wife and kids can see the way the world is going to end if they don’t behave according to the bible. Benjamin grew up as a very potent Christian and his wife was not that very religious so therefore he…

    The non-science undergraduate course that has taught me the most about myself has been Introduction to Theater – one of the most entertaining yet challenging classes I have ever taken. During the semester, we had to make our own costumes and prepare everything we needed to perform a group act in front of the rest of the class. Despite the fact that I had no prior experience in acting or theater, I decided to face the challenge head on – I took the most difficult role, the ghost. For the ghost, I created white robes from a bed-cover, ropes, pins, and thread and reviewed my lines thoroughly. After the entire class had presented their acts we found out from our professor that our act turned out to be one of the best acts in the class. This experience…

    Theatre can be a powerful tool to create social change. To the audience witnessing theatre, it is a piece of art that can evoke a feeling or provide a message that can cause action. For the actors, the effect can be even more profound as they are forced to empathize with their characters in order to portray them accurately. In the case of improv, perhaps the most central focus of this course, theatre becomes a way to merge the audience with the actors: it forces both into a position of introspection that yields an outward action. The ability of improv to create this interaction is why it can be used so effectively to initiate social change—people are forced to examine themselves.…

    Take a painting for instance, you and another individual may be looking at the same painting, but you will both have different interpretations of the painting based on what you know or understand about your life. This is exactly how it may be when looking at a play. In this case, by means of ethnicity and gender.

    When I was a child, my mother noticed that I was full of too much energy for her to handle, so she sent me to an after-school theatre program at my elementary school. This was groundbreaking for me. Being the middle-child often means that you are never really the center of attention. So theatre was my salvation because I could capture the attention of an entire audience, I could make people listen to me. I had this incredible rush pulse through my blood as I stood in front of people who were paying attention, who were interested in what I was going to say next. Unfortunately, I think it is a common problem in our society for a child to feel like no cares, like they are entirely alone. I think theatre saves us from that, at least it does for me. I was never really…

    6th Grade is already hard enough. In elementary school, we’re all ignorant to how the world is past 5th grade. It’s the second worst thing to happen right behind being the freshman class in high school. You’re the new group, the “fresh-meat,” the easier ones to pick-on. College simply gets an easy pass because to be different and unique here is almost cherished, and there is a higher sense of maturity then in the dreaded 6th grade.…
