Stage Fright – it’s a horrible thing.
Although I’ve never been one for Amateur Dramatics, Whilst I was growing up I took part in one or two productions in either Primary or Secondary School.
Nowadays, I brush it off – an upside of the downside of short-term memory loss. Any performance I make , if its well received – i’ll remember it more. If Not, I’ll probably forget about it two or three days later. That is of course – if I don’t make a complete Howler on stage.
So I Prepare – Music, Verse, Lines the lot…and if it’s part of a play i’ll try to make sure i’m reading my part.
I still remember – having to switch parts in a high school pantomime – “Aladdin” because a fellow pupil wasn’t delivering the punchline the way it was written
It petrified me – but I still received the biggest laugh of the production.
I suppose it was the fact, the four of us playing the palace guards got on so well during rehearsals.
