I'm one, and have been for a while. I'm directing Pride & Prejudice at my school, and have done 6 other shows at my school. I've also done a lot of short-time work on professional shows all around the country(lots of set construction and stuff).

Who else here is involved?

And yes, I am straight, I initially got involved to meet girls... its worked once or twice.

When I was in high school I did Drama at GCSE and Expressive Arts as an extra in just a year. Got a B in both.

I took part in a few drama productions, I miss it a bit actually.

I do Stage Crew and worked on one of our plays, The Burial at Thebes which made it to the State semi finals.

Good times. This year, we're sending Trojan Women to the festival. It's being retold in 1940s Poland, with Nazis and whatnot.

I starred in my school's first full theatrical production in its 41 years of production, I got 8 thespian points out of it, bad ass exprience, a really good lay, and not to mention I was chosen to sing the national anthem at graduation a month later. So in short, I'm amazing when it comes to theater, especially musicals. There's a picture of me dressed in costume on my profile, check it out!

i took theatre for an elective cause they wouldn't let me have an off period.

Eh, all the preps and idiots took it cause they needed fine arts credit. The best play my school could come up with was a play about a Samurai Girl. The one after they did High School Musical and my friend played a stoner
Team Orange

I've been involved with 9 shows since middle school, not counting the one I'm currently in and including the ones I've done technical work for. I am also the currently President of my school's drama club and thespian troupe. I was nominated in 2005 (my freshman year) for outstanding performance in a non-singing role in by Seattle's Fifth Avenue high school theatre awards. I am currently a level 6 (60 some odd points) honor thespian. I have a friend that is in year as me (senior) that has something like 130 but he does tech work and a professional. I'm just a talented amateur.

I don't assume all of the drama kids are gay, but that doesn't stop me from hating them. Leave all that drama behind in your class and/or club. Stop acting like it is more important than everything else, too.

Oh yeah, and enjoy moving to Hollywood and joining the parade of delusion in which all the millions of people with dreams make it big.

I really dont like people like you. Why should someone with genuine dreams of making it stop just because you say so? Even if they don't make it serves them as experience for later things in life.

Who said to stop? I just said enjoy the parade of delusion, how is that discouraging?

I also said leave your drama in class, and look what you've already done within minutes. Enforcing the stereotype is what you are doing.

i find musicals fun as i like to sing and am mildly good at dancing to choreography. i've only done a few though, got started with Camelot in high school, did Hello Dolly with a local group last summer. now that i've moved, i'm still trying to find out about the local theater group since we actually have a theater here.

edit: i hate that people assume that theater dudes are gay. i've only worked with one gay theater dude in any of the shows i've done. i'm straight, and actually got involved because this girl i liked persuaded me to join a musical she was in.

I played a parrot in year 7. I wore a Brazil football shirt and had one line, I liked it.

Was in theatre/drama for a year and a half. Dropped out of it in the second year cause of the stress. I shifted from acting to production and am now in my school's technical theatre class which is like for the lighting and stage design/management and all that. I think it suits me better. I don't attend actual drama club meetings though.
#33
My high school has a great theatre program and great director/ teacher. I was in acting for 2 years, then signed up for backstage/ stagecraft. I did that grade 11 to 12, did lighting mostly. It was awesome. We did West Side Story one year, and Seussical! the next year, they were both incredible.
#34
I started running sound late freshman year, then took classes the next 3 years. I only acted in small things like class plays, variety shows, and Reader's Theatre, but I've been running sound for everything I wasn't acting in.

I think there's 3 groups of theatre kids (at least at my school there was):
-Tech Crew/Stage Crew
-Theatre Kids / Drama Kids / whatever you want to call them
-and regular joes who liked theatre.

In my opinion, most of the Theatre Kids were reeeaaally annoying. They had there own set of social standards, acted wierd (in everyday life), and always got teacher/director preference in class and in assigning parts. The Tech Crew were the rebellious bunch - playing with lighters, pulling pranks on the Theatre Kids, telling dirty jokes on the headsets, ect. The regualr joes were just people - to put it plainly. They were the easiest to get along with, but they never got the recognition they deserved. They never got the big part in a play, or a memorable speech, or nothing.

In the Job Secrets thread, someone posted something about being the Sound Tech, and all the details of working with people who don't know what they want or what they're doing. It's so true! I'll find a link.

Sorry for the wall o' text, but after graduating, I've looked back and realized that I don't want to ever talk to a lot of people from theatre ever again.

EDIT: Try this link: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?p=16504929#post16504929

Hits the nail on the head of what it's like to be on the tech crew.

I'm involved with my schools drama stuff. I'm a junior this year and only started doing stuff last year. So far I've been:

Jack Warner in Shakespeare In Hollywood
The Voice Of The Vicious Man Eating Plant, Audrey 2 in Little Shop Of Horrors
Elvis in A School House Rock based Play
Lord Capulet in Romeo and Juliet

I don't think that is that bad of a resume for a year worth of stuff

and later in the year we're doing Les Miserables so I'm psyched for that.

Wow. My school only gets in two plays a year. We did Little Shop Of Horrors as our Summer play for last year. I was going to audition for the dentist, but again nerves and stress got to me. Even if I made the audition there's no way I would've lasted until the actual performances. Nerves really suck.

I originally wanted the dentist, but I wasn't as chiseled as the director wanted so I had to sit behind a mic and say lines, which I never learned and just read them out of the script and make gutteral noises that I never thought I could produce for the plant.

But nerves, you just have to be confident in what your doing and eventually you'll get over them.
