I want to have rehearsals six days a week. I want to sign in on a call board. I want to see people at the stage door. I want to sing until my throat is sore. I want to dance until my blisters have blisters. I want to do a scene that leaves both me and the audience in tears.
I want to become friends with the people I perform with. I want to tweet my cast mates inside jokes. I want to inspire people, even if it’s from the smallest part of the ensemble. I want to fall asleep at night with the show on my mind and wake up the same way.
i hate how being a theatre kid is such an expensive hobby. most people just have to buy like a guitar or something once until they can make enough money to buy another. we literally spend hundreds of dollars just to see our dreams being lived up on stage by someone else. repeatedly. until we’re so broke we can’t even afford to dream anymore.
