I discovered it when I was about 13, and have seen it 4 times since I was 15, from the first professional UK tour to my friend's amateur production. It was the first rock musical I heard, and was the first push for me to decide that theatre was really what I wanted to do with my life. It's shaped me as a person and performer, and I love it!

That’s so amazing that it has influenced you in such an important way! it’s so different from many musicals, but so beautiful. 

Tell me your thoughts on Spring Awakening! I just discovered it and I love it. 

Anonymous said: This summer our theatre group put on Godspell in less than three weeks. It was a very emotional show, and our cast grew extremely close. I suffer from very dry eyes, and as a result I physically cannot cry, but after our last performance, everyone else in the cast was. I had been "sobbing" ever since the finale, and as I hugged our Jesus goodbye, I got lightheaded and fainted. We still joke about the dangers of hugging Jesus.

LOL! I’ve always wanted to see that show. It seems so fun.

Anonymous said: you don't even have to post this but i just need to vent omfg i'm in bells are ringing rn at my school & tonight our director went beSERK because 5 rehearsals til opening and guhhh and then she sent us home after telling us (in a terrifying, overly/forced-calm voice) that we would go over notes & 'start fresh' tomorrow. because, apparently, if she tried to go over notes tonight, she would end up screaming at us. made us all feel really good.

Kay you’re not alone! Being that close to opening is hard, and with all the new elements like tech and costumes it’s a lot to deal with! My director is really laid back, so we know when she gets mad she’s really serious. And sometimes we are all afraid it won’t all come together. Like, in smile, we have really hard 30 second costumes changes, and everything kept messing up, like the night before opening, so we were all scared! But you know what, it all came together! It really always does. It always gets fixed and figured out, no matter how frustrated we may feel right after rehearsal. Sorry this was long lol, hang in there!

Me winning the pageant in “smile” and Sandra-Kay. I love how fun this part is! Anyone message me or submit stories from your own spring plays!

I love robins part! She’s so conflicted and so sweet.

Anonymous said: Just thought I'd share a slightly inspiring story! My freshman year of high school, I wasn't able to audition for the fall play, and I didn't get a part in the spring musical. I stayed in the company, worked on crews, and kept auditioning for things, even though I was convinced I would never have a part. I didn't have any connections and I didn't know the right people. Fast forward two years, though, and I have the lead in the musical! Don't give up, guys. Never stop auditioning or having fun!

Aww congratulations!!!!!! I’m so happy for you!

Me doing ventriloquism!

Have to learn how to do ventriloquism for the new show.. Anyone got any good stories or pictures? SUBMIT!
